Spiders as potential indicators of elephant-induced habitat changes in endemic sand forest, Maputaland, South Africa
Elephant impacts on spider assemblages, and the potential use of spiders as indicators of habitat changes, was assessed in central Maputaland, South Africa. Three habitats, namely undisturbed sand forest, elephant disturbed ...
Temporal development of hull-fouling assemblages associated with an Antarctic supply vessel
(Inter-Research 2009, 2009-07-02)
Introduction of non-native species poses one of the greatest, but least understood threats to marine biodiversity. Whilst considerable research effort has focused on vectors such as ballast water, hull fouling remains ...
Biotic homogenization and alien bird species along an urban gradient in South Africa
Similar to the process seen in invasion biology, urbanized environments lead to biotic homogenization with a few species, often alien, dominating the urban habitat. We investigated avian communities across an urban gradient ...
Ensemble models predict Important Bird Areas in southern Africa will become less effective for conserving endemic birds under climate change
Aim: To examine climate change impacts on endemic birds, which are of global significance for conservation, on a continent with few such assessments. We specifically assess projected range changes in relation to the Important ...
