The Alpine Rock Ptarmigan (Lagopus muta helvetica)—which is adapted to arctic and alpine environments—is suspected to be vulnerable to climate warming, but direct evidence is limited. Microclimates within a landscape may allow species to exist in regions where the general climate appears to be unsuitable for them. We therefore investigated the diversity of(More)
In the last decades, the effects of climate warming have been particularly marked in high mountain areas. High-altitude species adapted to cold temperatures are consensually held to be particularly vulnerable to climate warming. Among these species at risk, alpine birds like the Rock Ptarmigan (Lagopus muta) are expected to exhibit a strong negative(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyse the sound localisation skills of subjects with profound single-sided deafness (SSD) and accompanied ipsilateral tinnitus who are using a cochlear implant (CI) for between 4 and 11 years. DESIGN Sound localisation skills were tested using nine loudspeakers in a frontal semicircle ranging from -90° to +90°. Subjects were tested in the(More)
