Predictors of elevational biodiversity gradients change from single taxa to the multi-taxa community level
TLDR
This work quantifies cross-taxon consensus in diversity gradients and evaluates predictors of diversity from single taxa to a multi-taxa community level and points to the importance of temperature for diversification and species coexistence in plant and animal communities. Expand
Global warming, elevational ranges and the vulnerability of tropical biota
TLDR
Understanding broad-scale trends in species elevational distributions will help identify taxa and geographic regions vulnerable to global warming and highlight future research priorities. Expand
Taxonomic, bioacoustic and faunistic data on a collection of Tettigonioidea from Eastern Congo (Insecta: Orthoptera).
TLDR
Two phaneropterines, Horatosphaga leggei and Pardalota asymmetrica, showed remarkable calling songs lasting more than 10 s and produced by quite complicated stridulatory movements, and a new subgenus Arantia (Euarantia) Heller subgen. Expand

TLDR
Two Catantopinae (Acrididae) species are newly recorded for Mt Kilimanjaro and one pyrgomorphid species, Maura lurida (Fabricius, 1781), recovered again for the area. Expand
Canthariphilous Insects in East Africa
TLDR
A canthariphilous species from the dipteran family Platystomatidae was found in an indigenous forest of Mt Kilimanjaro, and the baiting sites are briefly characterised. Expand
SALTATORIA COENOSES OF HIGH-ALTITUDE GRASSLANDS ON MT. KILIMANJARO, TANZANIA (ORTHOPTERA: SALTATORIA)
From 1996 to 2001 field studies on Saltatoria were undertaken in half-year periods from October to April and August to September on the southern slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. The focus was onExpand
Climate–land-use interactions shape tropical mountain biodiversity and ecosystem functions
TLDR
The study reveals that climate can modulate the effects of land use on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, and points to a lowered resistance of ecosystems in climatically challenging environments to ongoing land-use changes in tropical mountainous regions. Expand
Climatic change as an engine for speciation in flightless Orthoptera species inhabiting African mountains
TLDR
Perceiving forests as centres of speciation reinforces the importance of conserving the remaining forest patches in the region, and indicates two radiations: the earliest one overlaps in time with the global spread of C4 grasslands and only grassland inhabiting lineages originated in this radiation. Expand

TLDR
The Tettigoniidae fauna is compared between the East Usambara Mountains and Mt Kilimanjaro and mechanisms of speciation discussed in Orthoptera for the area. Expand
