SPIDER ASSEMBLAGE STRUCTURE AND STABILITY IN A HETEROGENEOUS COASTAL DUNE SYSTEM (BELGIUM)
TLDR
An analysis of the spider assemblage structure and the presence of indicator species in the Flemish coastal dunes is presented, based on data from more than 170 year-round pitfall sampling campaigns from the 1970s onwards. Expand
Nitrite stability influenced by iron compounds
Abstract The decomposition of nitrite was studied in the presence of (1) different amounts of ferrous iron and (2) an amorphous and a crystalline (haematite) iron product at different pH and EhExpand
Nitrite: a key compound in N loss processes under acid conditions?
Nitrite is very important in N transformation processes because it is an intermediate product in the aerobic nitrification as well as in the anaerobic denitrification process. Under soil conditionsExpand

Unravelling the goblin spiders puzzle : rDNA phylogeny of the family Oonopidae (Araneae)
TLDR
The first phylogeny based on ribosomal sequence data suggests that the majority of the oonopid genera constitute a natural group and casts doubt on the monophyly of the genus Aschnaoonops, while corroborate that a low degree of body sclerotisation might be considered as a plesiomorphic trait.

Effect of urease inhibitors on urea hydrolysis and ammonia volatilization
SummaryTwo laboratory incubation experiments were conducted to study the effects of the urease inhibitors hydroquinone (HQ), phenyl phosphorodiamidate (PPDA), and N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamideExpand
Chemo-denitrification of nitrate-polluted water.
TLDR
It was found that the reduction of nitrite-nitrogen in the presence of ferrous iron partly continued to ammonium, and decreasing the amount of reagents led to a slower reduction rate but a lower accumulation of nitrate and hydroxylamine. Expand
Phosphate enrichment in the sandy loam soils of West-Flanders, Belgium
The last three decades, pig breeding has evolved towards a specialised, large scaled, land independent bio-industry in the province of West-Flanders. Subsequently, in certain regions, very highExpand
Conservation on Volcán Alcedo (Galápagos): terrestrial invertebrates and the impact of introduced feral goats
TLDR
Both the temporary increase in habitat heterogeneity and availability of dead wood explain the observed recent increase in species richness on goat-damaged sites and most of the natural diversity of Volcan Alcedo. Expand
