How geographically widespread biological communities assemble remains a major question in ecology. Do parallel population histories allow sustained interactions (such as host-parasite or plant-pollinator) among species, or do discordant histories necessarily interrupt them? Though few empirical data exist, these issues are central to our understanding of(More)
Planted meadows are increasingly used to improve the biodiversity and aesthetic amenity value of urban areas. Although many 'pollinator-friendly' seed mixes are available, the floral resources these provide to flower-visiting insects, and how these change through time, are largely unknown. Such data are necessary to compare the resources provided by(More)
Disruption of species interactions is a key issue in climate change biology. Interactions involving forest trees may be particularly vulnerable due to evolutionary rate limitations imposed by long generation times. One mitigation strategy for such impacts is Climate matching - the augmentation of local native tree populations by input from nonlocal(More)
The University of Nottingham (www.nottingham.ac.uk) is one of the leading universities in the UK. It is research intensive and global in its outlook. Operation Wallacea (www.opwall.com) is a conservation research organisation specialising in tropical forest and coral reef science and conservation. The two organisations have joined forces in the Parque(More)
A psychotherapy study for bulimia is described. The preliminary results of a random allocation control trial comparing cognitive behaviour therapy, behaviour therapy and group psychotherapy with a waiting list control are presented. The results of the first 60 subjects in active treatment are shown. They indicate that all three treatments are effective in(More)
