The status and distribution of newly identified endemic galaxiid in the eastern Cape Fold Ecoregion, of South Africa
(John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., 2018)
1. DNA‐based studies have uncovered cryptic species and lineages within almost all freshwater fishes studied thus far from the Cape Fold Ecoregion (CFE) of South Africa. These studies have changed the way the CFE is viewed, ...
Biological Flora of the British Isles: Ambrosia artemisiifolia
(British Ecological Society, 2015)
1. This account presents information on all aspects of the biology of Ambrosia artemisiifolia L. (Common ragweed) that are relevant to understanding its ecology. The main topics are presented within the standard framework ...
Soutpansberg climate data (2011)
The Soutpansberg Transect investigates the abundance and diversity of ants and spiders along an altitudinal gradient in the Western Soutpansberg Mountains, South Africa. It has a north-south orientation over the mountain ...
Life on the edge: rare and restricted episodes of a pan-tropical mutualism adapting to drier climates
(New Phytologist Trust, 2011)
• The fig tree–fig wasp obligate pollination mutualism has strong ancestral affinities with tropical communities, but is present in much drier contemporary biomes, especially at higher latitudes at the edge of their range. ...
Microclimates mitigate against hot temperatures in dryland ecosystems: termite mounds as an example
(Ecological Society of America, 2016)
Termite mounds have recently been shown to protect against drought by providing refuges for plants and foci for revegetation, but whether mounds modulate temperature remains untested. Organisms tend to experience climate ...
Managing consequences of climate-driven species redistribution requires intergration of ecology, conservation and social science
(Cambridge Philosophical Society, 2018)
Climate change is driving a pervasive global redistribution of the planet’s species. Species redistribution poses new questions for the study of ecosystems, conservation science and human societies that require a coordinated ...
Sutherland climate data 2008
The Sutherland Long-term Site investigates invertebrate physiology and the climate the invertebrates experience at two sites on a farm 20km from Sutherland in the Northern Cape, South Africa. It is a long term project, ...

Biological invasions in the Antarctic: extent, impacts and implications
(CAMBRIDGE UNIV PRESS, 2005-02)
Alien microbes, fungi, plants and animals occur on most of the sub-Antarctic islands and some parts of the Antarctic continent. These have arrived over approximately the last two centuries, coincident with human activity ...
Sani Pass climate data 2006
The Sani Pass long term site investigate the effects of inter-annual variation on ant and spider assemblages and the climate the invertebrates experience at 8 sites on the Sani Pass region of the Drakensberg in the Eastern ...
