Species and community responses to short-term climate manipulation: Microarthropods in the sub-Antarctic
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2006-09)
Both species and community-level investigations are important for understanding the biotic impacts of climate change, because current evidence suggests that individual species responses are idiosyncratic. However, few ...
Ants, altitude and change in the northern Cape Floristic Region
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2006-01)
Aim Climate-modelling exercises have demonstrated that the Cape Floristic Region is highly sensitive to climate change and will apparently lose much of its northern limits over the next few decades. Because there is little ...
Phenotypic plasticity mediates climate change responses among invasive and indigenous arthropods
(The Royal Society, 2007)
Synergies between global change and biological invasion have been identified as a major potential threat to global biodiversity and human welfare. The global change-type drought characteristic of many temperate terrestrial ...
Rapid range expansion and community reorganization in response to warming
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
Species ranges are expected to expand along their cooler boundaries in response to rising temperatures associated with current global climate change. However, this ‘fingerprint’ of climate change is yet to be assessed ...
Climate change and elevational diversity capacity: Do weedy species take up the slack?
(Royal Society, 2012)
Climate change leads to species range shifts and consequently to changes in diversity. For many systems, increases in diversity capacity have been forecast, with spare capacity to be taken up by a pool of weedy species moved ...
