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 ...
Global indicators of biological invasion: species numbers, biodiversity impact and policy responses
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2010)
Aim Invasive alien species (IAS) pose a significant threat to biodiversity. The Convention on Biological Diversity’s 2010 Biodiversity Target, and the associated indicator for IAS, has stimulated globally coordinated ...
Fine-scale temporal and spatial dynamics of epigaeic ants in Fynbos: sampling implications
(Entomological Society of Southern Africa, 2007)
Conservation and management strategies are dependent on reliable species richness information. Accurate species richness counts, especially for invertebrates, are almost impossible to obtain from sampling alone, due to ...
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 ...
