Vegetation, climate and environmental dynamics of the Black Sea/Northern Anatolian region during the last 134 ka obtained from palynological analysis by Lyudmila Shumilovskikh( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a part of the multidisciplinary project "Dynamics of Mid-latitude/Mediterranean climate in Northern Anatolia/Black Sea region during the last 150 kyr", this research presents new pollen and organic-walled dinoflagellate cyst records from the SE Black Sea for the penultimate deglaciation - Eemian (134-119 ka), last glacial (64-23 ka) and last deglaciation - Holocene (18 ka - present) periods. The reconstruction is based on the records from the sediment cores 22-GC3, 22-GC8 and 25-GC1, and provides information on vegetation successions in Northern Anatolia and on changes in the Black Sea s
Patterns of Mountain Vegetation Dynamics and their Responses to Environmental Changes in the South Ecuadorian Andes by Nele Jantz( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El sur de los Andes Ecuatorianos alberga una extraordinaria riqueza de especies. Muchos factores ambientales diferentes influyen entre sí en un espacio muy limitado y crean ecosistemas únicos y complejos. Sin embargo, esta área está altamente en peligro debido al creciente impacto humano a través de la intensificación del uso de la tierra y cambio global. Sólo poco se sabe acerca de la historia paleoecológica y dinámica del paisaje de esta zona. Sin embargo, la información acerca del por qué y cómo los ecosistemas han cambiado en el pasado es crucial para el desarrollo de estrategias innova
Studies on late Quaternary environmental dynamics (vegetation, biodiversity, climate, soils, fire and human impact) on Mt Kilimanjaro by Lisa Schüler( )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sediments of buried soils from different key areas at Mt Kilimanjaro are studied to reconstruct former and to predict future landscape dynamics on Mt Kilimanjaro. This contributes to a better understanding of local and regional ecosystems, climate, fire and soil dynamics in a larger context, ecosystem dynamics and their reaction on environmental changes, connections and disjunctions of different ecosystems and their role for the development of the biodiversity hot spots in East Africa. Mt Kilimanjaro represents one of the global centres of vascular plant diversity. It is one of the most
Epiphyte diversity and microclimate of the tropical lowland cloud forest in French Guiana by Christine Gehrig-Downie( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lowland cloud forests are well known from temperate regions, e.g. the coasts of California and northern Chile (Bruijnzeel 2001), but in the Tropics have remained uninvestigated. We tested the hypothesis that tropical lowland cloud forest (LCF) and lowland rain forest (LRF) exist as distinct forest types with a higher abundance of epiphytes in LCF and differing in epiphyte species composition and microclimate. Furthermore, these forest types seem to occur in close proximity to one another, with LCF in valleys and LRF on adjacent slopes. To validate this hypothesis, we compared epiphyte diver

Late Quaternary Vegetation History And Climate Change In The Gobi Desert, South Mongolia by Waheed Murad( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Southern Mongolia is a part of the arid to semiarid region of Central Asia and represents a transitional zone between the circulation systems of westerlies and associated North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), the Asian summer monsoon and the Mongolian High Pressure System (MHPS). The sedimentary records from this geographically important region are a central key to understand past vegetation and climate changes, owing to variations in the intensity of the interacting climate systems. It is imperative to understand the palaeoclimate dynamics and landscape development of arid Central Asia based on past vegetation history and to get a notion about the future environmental conditions under the ongoing Global change. The available palaeo-vegetation and palaeo-climate data from arid Central Asia are mainly conducted in Northwestern Mongolia and Northwestern China. The present research work focus on palaeo-ecological analyses of two lake archives of southern Mongolia (Bayan Tohomiin Nuur and Orog Nuur)
Investigating Environmental (Climate and Vegetation) Change of Eastern Amazonia During Pleistocene and Holocene Using Multi-Proxy Analysis by Kamaleddin Alizadeh( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis contributes to better understanding of long-term vegetation history in eastern Amazonia and the possible role that climate, fire, soil and human may play to change the landscape. To achieve this aim, three new sediment records form eastern and southeastern Amazonia have been studied with a multi-proxy approach (pollen, charcoal, lithology, extractable Fe, remote sensing) and seven already published palynological records from other parts of tropical South America have been reviewed. The first record named Curiaú (CUR) retrieved from a small swamp near the mouth of Amazon River. T
Late Quaternary vegetation, climate and ocean dynamics inferred from marine sediment cores off southeastern South America by Fang Gu( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Southeastern South America harbour highly diverse and species-rich ecosystems, such as the Atlantic rainforest, Araucaria forest and grasslands, which occur in a transitional zone from tropical to subtropical. This climatic sensitive region is influenced by different climatic factors, such as the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), the South American Monsoon System (SAMS), cold polar fronts and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO). The dynamics of Brazil Current (BC) from the north, as well as the Malvinas Current (MC, refers to the term Falkland/Malvinas Current (FMC) in Chapter 4) a

Shade trees in cacao agroforestry systems: influence on roots and net primary production by Yasmin Joana Monna Abou Rajab( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Huge areas of natural forests are rapidly cleared worldwide to make way for agricultural cultivation systems. This has a substantial impact on the functioning of ecosystems, as well as on carbon cycling and hence effects global climate change. Currently, Indonesia has one of the highest deforestation rates worldwide and on the island of Sulawesi, where this study was carried out, substantial tracts of primary forest are being cleared in order to predominantly cultivate cacao (Theobroma cacao L.), which made Sulawesi the biggest producer of cacao within Indonesia. Cacao is an understory rain
Development and dynamics of the Atlantic rainforest during the Late Quaternary and its connections with the climate system by Jackson Martins Rodrigues( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Atlantic rainforest harbour an outstandingly high biodiversirty. Many different environmental factors (climate, soil, geomorphology, ocean and etc) interact in a very large space creating complex ecosystems with high endemism. Altough, its richness, the Altnatic rainforest is highly endangered due to increasing human impact through the intensification of land-use and consequent broad landscape replacement. Many palaecological studies have been developed during the last decades providing important background of diverse location around Atlantic rainforest, however little is known about re
Ant diversity, function and services across tropical land-use systems in Indonesia by Lisa Helen Denmead( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Land-use change due to agricultural expansion is one of the greatest global threats to biodiversity and associated ecosystem functions and services. In the tropics in particular, conversion of forest and agroforests into monoculture agriculture such as oil palm is happening at an extremely rapid rate, leading to highly simplified landscapes. In Indonesia, currently the world's leading palm oil producer, oil palm plantation crop cover was nine million hectares in 2010 with a projected increase to 18 million hectares by 2020. The predicted further large-scale expansion of oil palm plantations

Die Verwendung von funktionellen Gruppen bei Pflanzen hat eine lange Tradition in der Ökologie, spätestens seit von Humboldt die erste physiognomische Klassifikation auf der Grundlage von Wuchsformen zusammenstellte. In den letzten Jahren wurden sie zunehmend benutzt, wobei eine Vielzahl neuer Meßverfahren und statistischer Methoden entwickelt wurde. Funktionelle Gruppen setzen sich aus Arten mit ähnlichen Eigenschaften zusammen und weisen demnach ähnliche ökologische Anpassungen auf und haben gemeinsame Auswirkungen auf Ökosystemprozesse. Deshalb kann man erwarten, daß ihre Zusammensetzung
Studies on mountain vegetation, plant diversity, fire and forest line dynamics of the Southeastern and Central Ecuadorian Andes during the Late Quaternary by Andrea Soledad Villota Villafuerte( )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ecuadorian Andes in northwestern South America are well known for being among the hot spots of global vascular plant diversity due to their complex topography (uplift of the mountain chain), varying climatic conditions and different vegetation types. Despite its high biodiversity level, the Ecuadorian Andes represent a most threatened and poorly studied landscape. Especially the páramo and mountain ecosystems are subject to overgrazing, burning, cultivation and deforestation caused by the expansion of human activity during the last decades. The knowledge of palaeoecology and landscape d
Late quaternary vegetation and climate dynamics in western amazonia by Paula Andrea Rodriguez Zorro( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Amazon is a shelter for a huge variety of fauna and flora with the largest fluvial system and the highest diversity in the world. The biotic and abiotic factors of the floodplains serve to control the development and evolution of the ecosystems of the region. In the Amazon lowlands, little is known about past vegetation and ecosystem dynamics and to an even lesser extent human disturbances. Therefore, this project presents three palaeoecological multi-proxy studies from the western part of the Amazon region in Brazil. The aim is to reconstruct the vegetation and climate changes as well

2 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Detailed analysis of past environmental, climate and land use history in the Indonesian region is essential to obtain better understanding of human-environment relationships and to prevent uncertainties in future development of the region. Indonesia is one of the world biodiversity hot-spots and at the same time it is one of the most heavily populated areas of the planet. Over historical time, the influence of the human activity in the region became more and more intensive. To assess human contribution to the environment change, this project (SPICE III - CAFINDO, subproject 5) was establish

The ecosystems around paddy fields in Java are varied, owing to differences in climate, altitude and traditional farming varies across villages. The main objectives of the present study were 1) to examine the diversity and composition of weed communities in paddy fields and their relation to environmental factors, agricultural practice and cultivation season; 2) to examine the effects of different types of surrounding vegetation on the plant diversity in paddy fields; and 3) to evaluate the productivity and nutrient potential of rice weeds as ruminant feed. We studied sites in six areas i
Pleistocene and Holocene environmental changes in the Brazilian Amazon region by Barbara Hermanowski( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The biodiverse Amazon rainforest biome is the world's largest rainforest ecosystem and plays an essential role for global climate, carbon budget, and the hydrological cycle. In the light of future climate change the effects of rising temperatures and changing precipitation on Amazonian biodiversity is a major point of interest. In addition to climate change forest fragmentation is one of the biggest threats the Amazonian rainforest has to suffer, besides the growing pressure of human land use. In which way future global warming would induce species extinctions and ecosystem turnovers is the
