Abstract

In the present study we comprehensively characterize intratesticular sex steroid production, metabolism and receptors in the domestic cat to elucidate the role of testosterone, estradiol and progesterone in testis development, steroid synthesis and spermatogenesis. There is a great demand for new...

Abstract

Although there are nearly 500 species of native dung beetles in Australia, most are adapted to small, hard, dry, pelletised marsupial droppings and not to dealing with the large, moist deposits of cattle. In 1788, Governor Arthur Phillip arrived at Botany Bay with five cows, two bulls, 44 sheep and ...

This paper reports the study at the protected area in Bosco Fontana in Italy, where the elimination of alien tree species was used to improve habitat structures typical of old forests. In this area, differentiated strategies were developed for the red oak and the hybrid poplar, which take into...

Abstract

Kudzu (Pueraria lobata) is a vine native to East Asia that grows under optimal conditions up to 30 cm per day. In Switzerland, the species is found on the blacklist of the invasive neophytes. At present 41 spots covering 35 141 m2 are known in southern Switzerland. Historical spots known since 2006 ...

Abstract

North-west European forest ecologists and forest managers perceived, and some still perceive, Black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrh. var. serotina) as their "enemy". In this paper we trace the history of this Northeast-American tree species in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland and...

Abstract

Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb.] Franco) is the most significant tree species of non-native origin in south-western Germany from a commercial point of view. Its importance is expected to increase in the effort to adapt forests to climate change because Douglas fir is considered to be more ...

Abstract

The North American black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) is considered controversial as many other introduced tree species because of its both positive and negative properties. Based on a literature review and own data we analyze the occurrence of black locust in Czechia and Switzerland and present...

Abstract

"The New Wild" resulting from biological invasions is a controversial concept focussing on the integration of exotic species into indigenous ecosystems. Following this rationale, the great vitality of the new species could be exploited to populate ecosystems heavily altered or largely destroyed by...

Abstract

Pollen and macrofossils are used to reconstruct mechanisms and processes of past invasions and collapses of tree species. They are also providing bottom lines for future invasions and collapses. The Swiss forest communities were always shifting to adjust to climate and land use changes. Some...

Abstract

American pokeweed (Phytolacca americana) is a very invasive plant species. As it is heliophilous, it has found ideal conditions for its spreading in clearings, which have formed after disasters and on bark beetle hot spots in recent years. It has pronounced features of a successful invasive...
