The tropical mountain forest : patterns and processes in a biodiversity hotspot by S. R Gradstein( )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tropical mountain forests are very rich in species and are generally considered as hotspots of biodiversity. They are also of great ecological importance as sources of water and other ecosystem services for millions of people living in the tropics. However, these valuable forest ecosystems are now increasingly being fragmented, reduced and disturbed by human interventions. This book originated from a lecture series on the tropical mountain forest organized by the Göttingen Centre of Biodiversity and Ecology and held at the University of Göttingen, Germany during the summer term of 2007. The volume presents a synthesis of current ecological research in Germany on the tropical mountain forest, from an interdisciplinary perspective

Unraveling the causal links between ecosystem productivity measures and species richness using terrestrial ferns in Ecuador by Laura Inés Salazar Cotugno( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work focuses on the relationship between terrestrial fern species richness and productivity, and on the fern nutrient availability along a tropical elevational gradient in Ecuador. During three yearly field phases between 2009 and 2011, field work was carried out at eight elevations (500 m to 4000 m) on the eastern Andean slope in Ecuador. Diversity, biomass, productivity and leaf functional traits of terrestrial ferns were recorded in three permanent plots of 400m2 each per elevation. In Chapter 1, I outlined the general purpose of this dissertation, as well as general concepts. In Ch
Baumdiversität, Waldstruktur und Wachstumsdynamik zweier tropischer Bergregenwälder in Ecuador und Costa Rica by Jürgen Homeier( Book )

Photosynthetic capacity and nitrogen nutrition of Ecuadorian montane forest trees by Bärbel Wittich( )

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

With increasing elevation, the growth conditions of trees in tropical mountains become generally more adverse in terms of decreasing nutrient availabilities, decreasing temperatures and decreasing atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2). In tropical montane forests, reduced decomposition rates at higher altitudes lead to thicker organic layers and together with reduced mineralization and nitrification rates to a change in available nitrogen forms and nitrogen has been shown to limit productivity in these forests. How photosynthetic capacity (Amax) of tropical trees on the one hand
Effects of moderate Nitrogen and Phosphorus addition on the species composition and dynamics of the three seedlings community in tropical montane forests in southern Ecuador by Dayssy Maritza Cárate Tandalla( )

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

Las actividades antropogénicas han producido cambios en los ecosistemas alrededor del mundo. En las regiones tropicales de suramérica, la industrialización de las ciudades y el desmonte de los bosques por medio de quemas son las principales actividades que producen y expulsan contaminantes a la atmósfera e inducen cambios en los patrones de deposición de nutrientes y en el clima de los bosques primarios. El nitrógeno (N) y el fósforo (P) son considerados los principales nutrientes que limitan crecimiento en las plantas ya que su disponibilidad es vital para la cadena de producción primaria

Globale Biodiversität in der Krise was können Deutschland und die EU dagegen tun? = Global biodiversity in crisis : what can Germany and the EU do about it? by Detlev Drenckhahn( Book )

2 editions published in 2020 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler aus verschiedenen Disziplinen der Biodiversität, Ökologie, Ökonomie, Anthropologie und integrierten Landsystem-Forschung haben sich mit Fragen der globalen Krise der biologischen Vielfalt befasst. In dem daraus resultierenden Diskussionspapier "Globale Biodiversität in der Krise - Was können Deutschland und die EU dagegen tun?“ und in dem dazugehörenden Dokumentationsband zeigen die Autorinnen und Autoren auf, wie Deutschland und Europa reagieren sollten, um das gemeinsame Ziel zu erreichen, den Verlust an Biodiversität zu stoppen. Die Vielfalt von Pflanzen und Tieren ist eine unserer wichtigsten Lebensgrundlagen. Teil der Evolution war und ist immer auch das Aussterben und die Neuentstehung von Arten. In den letzten Jahrzehnten ist jedoch ein in der Geschichte der Erde bisher nie erreichtes Massenaussterben von Pflanzen- und Tierarten zu beobachten. Der Einfluss des Menschen auf alle Bereiche unserer Umwelt hat so nicht nur zu Klimawandel geführt, sondern auch dazu, dass ein großer Teil der biologischen Vielfalt unwiederbringlich verloren gegangen ist. Was dies für das langfristige Überleben der Menschheit bedeutet, ist aktuell kaum abschätzbar. Wichtig ist jedoch, dass sowohl der Schutz des Klimas als auch der Schutz der Biodiversität untrennbar miteinander verbundene Herausforderungen für die Menschheit sind. Die Weltgemeinschaft hat bereits bei der Konvention von Rio 1992 die Dringlichkeit anerkannt, die dem Biodiversitätsschutz zukommt. In den letzten fast 30 Jahren verpflichteten sich die Vertragsstaaten zu verschiedenen Zielen, die dem Schutz der Biodiversität dienen sollen und den Verlust der Vielfalt möglichst stoppen sollten. Vieles wurde erreicht, aber der Verlust der Vielfalt geht kaum gebremst weiter. Publikationen in der Reihe "Leopoldina Diskussion“ sind Beiträge der genannten Autorinnen und Autoren. Mit den Diskussionspapieren bietet die Akademie Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern die Möglichkeit, flexibel und ohne einen formellen Arbeitsgruppen-Prozess Denkanstöße zu geben oder Diskurse anzuregen und hierfür auch Empfehlungen zu formulieren
