Body size patterns in Drosophila inhabiting a mesocosm: interactive effects of spatial variation in temperature and abundance
Body size is a major component of fitness. However, the relative contributions of different factors to optimal size, and the determinants of spatial and temporal variation in size, have not been fully established empirically. ...
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 ...
The detection of spatial structure in populations and communities: An empirical case study
(Centre d'etudes nordique, Universite Laval, 2009)
The presence of spatial autocorrelation in abundance and richness patterns has been recognised for some time. Evaluation of the tools to quantify patterning often uses simulated data that may be unrealistic or empirical ...
