Abstract

The effect of local and landscape level land-use composition on predatory arthropods in a tropical agricultural landscape.

It has been suggested that the composition of different non-crop land-use types along with tree density regulate local biodiversity in agricultural landscapes. However, specific data is limited, not least from tropical regions. We examined how different land-use types and forest cover at different...

Abstract

What is the role of trees and remnant vegetation in attracting people to urban parks?

Public parks commonly contain important habitat for urban biodiversity, and they also provide recreation opportunities for urban residents. However, the extent to which dual outcomes for recreation and conservation can be achieved in the same spaces remains unclear. We examine whether greater...

Abstract

Ecosystem greenspots pass the first test.

Given climate change projections, the ability to identify locations that provide refuge under drought conditions is an urgent conservation priority. Previously, it has been proposed that the ecosystem greenspot index could be used to identify locations that currently function as habitat refuges...

Abstract

Green-up of deciduous forest communities of northeastern North America in response to climate variation and climate change.

Temporal shifts in phenology are important biotic indicators of climate change. Satellite-derived Land Surface Phenology (LSP) offers data for the study of vegetation phenology at landscape to global spatial scales. However, the mechanisms of plant phenological responses to temperature are rarely...

Abstract

Do corridors promote connectivity for bird-dispersed trees? The case of Persea lingue in Chilean fragmented landscapes.

Disentangling the contribution of corridors to landscape connectivity is crucial for adopting efficient measures in conservation, but their actual role in heterogeneous landscapes is not yet fully understood. We assessed the hypothesis that corridors, consisting of hedgerows and riparian vegetation...

Nutritional requirement and management of Arabica coffee (Coffea arabica L.) in Ethiopia: national and global perspectives.

The bulk of coffee soils in southwestern and southern regions of Ethiopia are classified as Nitto sols, which are highly weathered and originate from volcanic rock. These soils are deep and well drained having a pH of 5-6, and have medium to high contents of most of the essential elements except...

Determination of proteolytic activities of Bacillus species isolated from traditional fermented oil bean seed (UGBA: Pentaclethra macrophylla, Benth).

Eighty samples of traditional fermented "ugba" (Pentaclethra macrophylla, Benth) wraps collected from eight markets in Umuahia were analyzed for proteolytic activities (by zone of inhibition in mm) of Bacillus species using two protein-based substrates: Skim Milk Agar and Nutrient Agar supplemented...
