Variation in decomposition rates in the fynbos biome, South Africa: the role of plant species and plant stoichiometry (Springer Science+Business Media B.V., 2011)Previous studies in the fynbos biome of the Western Cape, South Africa, have suggested that biological decomposition rates in the fynbos vegetation type, on poor soils, may be so low that fire is the main factor contributing ...
Variation in scorpion metabolic rate and rate–temperature relationships: implications for the fundamental equation of the metabolic theory of ecology (Blackwell, 2007)The fundamental equation of the metabolic theory of ecology (MTE) indicates that most of the variation in metabolic rate are a consequence of variation in organismal size and environmental temperature. Although evolution ...
(Elsevier Ltd., 2011)In the context of global environmental change much of the focus has been on changing temperatures. However, patterns of rainfall and water availability have also been changing and are expected to continue doing so. In ...
(2011-08-23)Wind speed and direction at 1m height were logged at five locations on Juniors Kop (Marion Island). The loggers were deployed in May 2009 and May 2010, but the data time series differ in length due to sensor damage.
