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

The South Ecuadorian Andes harbour an outstandingly high species-richness. Many different environmental factors influence one another in a most limited space and create unique and complex ecosystems. This area is highly endangered because of growing human impact through the intensification of land-use and global change. Only little is known about palaeoecological history and landscape dynamics of this area. The information about why and how ecosystems changed in the past is crucial for the development of innovative strategies for conservation and future climate predictions. In this study, w
The Ecology of the Red Rainbowfish (Glossolepis incisus) and the Impact of Human Activities on Its Habitats in Lake Sentani, Papua by Henderite Loisa Ohee( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das in der westlichen Hälfte der Insel Neuguinea liegende Papua unterliegt einer raschen, unzureichend geplanten sozialen und ökonomischen Entwicklung. Zunehmende Umweltzerstörung (Habitatdegradierung) bedroht den hohen Artenreichtum und die einheimische Biodiversität. Süßwasserökosysteme sind sehr stark bedroht durch Umweltverschmutzung, Habitatsveränderung und das Einschleppen von fremden Arten. Bisher wurde dieser menschliche Einfluss an den Süßwasserarten unzureichend erforscht, speziell an den Fischen in stehenden und fliessenden Gewässern in Papua. Der Sentani See lieg
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
The phylogenetic system of Mantodea (Insecta: Dictyoptera) by Frank Wieland( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Praying mantises (Mantodea) are a charismatic group of raptorial insects. Their main distribution encompasses the tropical and subtropical regions of the world where they have conquered almost every habitat including the sandy deserts. Mantodea are well-known to the public. Their highly moveable heads and an impressive appearance, ranging from conspicuously colourful to well-camouflaged and plant-like, add to their popularity. Despite their often fantastic looks and interesting behaviour, Mantodea have been mostly neglected by science in the past century. A renaissance of praying mantis research by both molecular and morphological means has recently started to contribute immensely to our understanding of these fascinating insects and their evolution. This volume presents the first phylogenetic analysis of Mantodea based exclusively on an extensive morphological dataset comprising the description and detailed discussion of 152 morphological characters for 122 species from the greater part of the taxonomical subgroups. Observations on fossil mantises, postembryonic development, and sexual dimorphism are considered for tracing character evolution, and the results are compared with the latest molecular findings. The structures of many rare taxa are shown in detail for the first time, including the forelegs of Chaeteessa, Mantoida, and Metallyticus. Selected characters and their evolution are elucidated in further detail, for example head processes, asymmetrical male antennomeres, female digging structures, and the aberrant foreleg morphology of Chaeteessa and Metallyticus. Hypotheses on the early evolution of the mantodean lifestyle are presented. This monograph contains more than 460 figures, including detailed drawings and SEM images of morphological structures, making this volume the most comprehensive work on mantodean morphology to date
Vascular plants of Greece an annotated checklist( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a reference for the plant diversity of Greece, bringing together a vast body of information previously widely dispersed in various regional floras, floristic dissertations, monographs, composite works and individual research papers. The checklist offers an incentive for further research and cooperation on the knowledge, and hence the conservation of the angiosperms, gymnosperms and pteridophytes of Greece, particularly focusing on taxa that might be or become threatened or endangered in Greece due to habitat loss and landscape exploitation. The book includes the complete floristic catalogue of the vascular plants of Greece, with annotations on distribution, chorology, life-form and habitats
Dendroecological investigations on subfossil mire pine woodland in northwest Germany = Dendroökologische Untersuchungen an subfossilen Moor-Kiefernwäldern in Niedersachsen by Inke Achterberg( )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present work is a dendrochronological investigation of peat-preserved pines (Pinus sylvestris) from northwest German mires (Fed. State of Lower Saxony). The project (DFG funded project LE 1805/2-2) continued the work of the predecessor project (DFG funded project LE 1805/1-2), which had begun the dendrochronological survey of the subfossil pines in northewest Germany. Oak chronologies composed of wood from mires and river deposits had been established earlier. The pines contain environmental indications complementary to those supplied by the oaks. This is one of the reasons to intensely
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
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
The assembly of island floras from a macroecological perspective by Christian König( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Islands have always played a central role in ecology and biogeography. On the one hand, island biotas are ecologically unique by featuring exceptionally high rates of endemism and remarkable evolutionary adaptations while being generally poor in species. On the other hand, the geographical, climatic, and geological diversity of islands across the globe facilitates the detailed study of abiotic and biotic factors that have shaped these extraordinary assemblages. Many findings from island biogeography have led to general ecological insights in the past, e.g. the dynamic regulation of species
The late holocene history of vegetation, climate, fire dynamics and human impacts in Java and Southern Kalimantan by Anastasia Poliakova( )

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
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
Biotoppflege mit Pferden Auswirkungen einer ganzjährigen Beweidung mit Exmoor-Ponys (Equus ferus f. caballus) auf halboffene Weidelandschaften am Beispiel Süd-Langeland by Tonja Mannstedt( )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of the research project was to study the vegetation and landscape changes in a grass-dominated nature reserve, under year-round extensive grazing with free-ranging horses. The project area (107 ha) is located at the southern point of the Danish island Langeland. The herd of Exmoor Ponies (Equus ferus f. caballus) was installed in the area in October 2006. The main goal has been to support a rich plant community under the influence of large herbivores and to optimize ecological conditions for insects, amphibians and birds. Due to its robustness, the Exmoor Pony is well suited for a y
Ecological analysis of large floristic and plant-sociological datasets - opportunities and limitations by Florian Goedecke( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis comprises opportunities and limitations for the analysis of floristic and plant-sociological datasets and presents four related exemplary case studies. Woody plant species, their isolated metapopulations and vegetation units are considered as study objects in a Mediterranean island context. Studies address the islands of Crete and Sicily. The first chapter introduces to general methodologies and positions the conducted studies within this frame. The second chapter addresses the ecology and co-occurrence of woody species in Cretan landscape context. For precise coordinates of alm
Effects of different energy cropping systems on plant diversity in Central German agricultural landscapes by Charlotte Seifert( )

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

The rich biodiversity of the Central European farmland is to a large extent directly dependent on human management decisions. Diverse and dynamic biocoenoses have developed in mutual interactions with farming practices, and have been an integral part of agricultural land ever since the Neolithic. In the middle of the 20th century, when synthetic biocides, mineral fertilisers and more powerful machinery became widely available, an unprecedented, steady and rapid erosion of farmland biodiversity commenced. Despite political declarations of intentions to slow biodiversity loss, pressure on far
Vegetation and functional diversity of sand dune habitats between and within different bioclimatic regions by Parastoo Mahdavi( )

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

Use of plant functional types has a long tradition in ecology from the time that von Humboldt offered the first physiognomic classification of plants based on growth form. In recent years, the application of functional traits in ecological studies increased and a variety of new measuring and statistical methods were developed. Functional groups comprise species with similar traits and thus similar response to environmental pressures and similar effects on ecosystem processes. Therefore, it is expected that they are affected rather by niche similarities than by biogeographic regions. However
Diversity of rice weeds vegetation and its potential as local forage resource in Java, Indonesia by Nur Rochmah Kumalasari( )

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

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
Definition of areas with high conservation priority in Southern Ecuador - An approach combining spatial and temporal patterns of deforestation and human impact with endemic plant diversity by María Fernanda Tapia Armijos( )

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

The forests of South Ecuador have high conservation value because they are highly threatened, but also possess high diversity and endemism levels. However, as the process of conservation is inherently spatial, the little available information about the factors that promote vulnerability of these forests as well as the spatial distribution of the conservation targets have produced some conservation pitfalls. The main objective of this dissertation was to generate spatial information about the threats and biological values occurring in this region to prioritize areas for conservation. The sec
