Freudlose Augenblicke Bleak moments( Visual )

3 editions published in 1971 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die attraktive junge Sekretärin Sylvia (Anne Raitt) kümmert sich fürsorglich um ihre geistig behinderte Schwester Hilda (Sarah Stephenson), mit der sie in einem tristen Londoner Vorort wohnt. Still leidet sie unter ihrer Einsamkeit, die sie mit ihrer allein stehenden Kollegin Pat (Joolia Cappleman) teilt. Pat ist Mitglied in einer religiösen Sekte und versucht, Hilda zu einer Wunderheilung mitzunehmen, doch Sylvia weigert sich strikt. Eines Tages quartiert sich der wortkarge Hippie Norman (Mike Bradwell) in Sylvias Garage ein, wo er eine Underground-Zeitschrift druckt. Norman fällt es schwer, sich auszudrücken, aber mit seiner Gitarre weckt er in Sylvia und Hilda verschüttete Gefühle. Sie finden allmählich wieder neuen Lebensmut, doch Norman zieht bald weiter. Sylvia lässt sich auf ein Rendezvous mit ihrem stillen Verehrer Peter (Eric Allan) ein. Der scheue Lehrer lädt sie zum Abendessen ein. Sylvia hofft sehr, dass er sie an diesem Abend aus ihrem Dornröschenschlaf wachküßt, doch Peter ist mutlos... "Freudlose Augenblicke" ist eine schonungslose Psycho-Studie über Verklemmungen, einschüchternde Konventionen und die diskrete Unfähigkeit, unbefangen miteinander zu reden. (c)Filmdatenbank

Everything you always wanted to know about intransitive competition but were afraid to ask( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Over 40years after the introduction of the concept into ecology, intransitive (i.e. non-hierarchical) competition remains overlooked by ecological theory, despite theoretical work showing it could be a major driver of species coexistence. This special feature presents six studies, including models, reviews, experimental studies and large-scale observational studies. Collectively, these studies help to (i) link intransitive competition with short- and long-term coexistence and with other ecological patterns, (ii) evaluate the conditions under which intransitivity is more common and (iii) determine how best to quantify the degree of intransitivity. The studies in this special feature show the generality of intransitive competition in nature, explore interactions between intransitivity and other coexistence mechanisms, and illustrate the effect of environmental conditions (drought, shade, fertility) on intransitivity and coexistence. They also show which metrics best quantify intransitivity and highlight the importance of adopting a more continuous view of competition as varying from strongly transitive to strongly intransitive. The studies also examine relationships between intransitivity and functional diversity and explore the evolution of intransitivity over time. Synthesis . The studies presented here advance the field by integrating intransitive competition into species coexistence and general ecological theory. We also highlight important research gaps that will hopefully inspire the next generation of studies in this topic
Emergence of weak-intransitive competition through adaptive diversification and eco-evolutionary feedbacks( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Indirect biotic interactions--such as intransitive competition--are increasingly recognized as being important in shaping ecological patterns in natural systems. Over long time-scales, such indirect interactions may affect the evolution of species phenotypes, which in turn can modify these interactions, thereby begetting eco-evolutionary feedbacks. If indirect intransitive interactions can emerge in situ during lineage diversification, they could profoundly affect species' phenotypic diversity, temporal stability, and subsequent diversification rates. We address these questions by investigating the conditions under which indirect intransitive competition can emerge from a lineage diversifying in sympatry. We use an adaptive dynamics model to study the ecological and evolutionary properties of this lineage under different scenarios where competition for resources between phenotypes varies in strength and (a)symmetry. Results show that weak-intransitive competition can emerge during the sympatric diversification of a single lineage. "Weak-intransitivity" here refers to situations where species interactions are not perfectly transitive, that is, there is no strict hierarchy in species competitive abilities. The strength of such weak-intransitivity increases when the competition between phenotypes increases in strength and asymmetry. The strength of intransitivity also correlates with other system properties. We notably found that the strength of intransitivity increases with the number of phenotypes, and that greater intransitivity correlates with the evolution of greater functional trait divergences between phenotypes, greater resistance to invasion by new phenotypes but lower resistance to disturbances as well as slower evolutionary rates. Synthesis . This theoretical exploration of the evolution of intransitive competition provides the first formal bridge between the ecological and evolutionary aspects of intransitive competition. We show that, when competitive interactions are strong enough, weak-intransitive competition is more likely to emerge through adaptive diversification than from a random community assembly. Intransitive competition is, therefore, not only restricted to between-species interactions but can also function as a regulator of diversification within species, thereby affecting lineage functional diversity, and ecological and evolutionary stability. Abstract : We provide a theoretical exploration of how intransitive competition can emerge within species, via the interaction between ecological and evolutionary processes. We show that, when competitive interactions are strong enough, weak-intransitive competition is more likely to emerge through adaptive diversification (solid lines) than from a random community assembly (shaded areas). Intransitive competition is, therefore, not only restricted to between-species interactions but can also function as a regulator of diversification within species, thereby affecting lineage functional diversity and ecological and evolutionary stability
