We investigate front propagation in a reacting particle system in which particles perform scale-free random walks known as Lévy flights. The system is described by a fractional generalization of a reactiondiffusion equation. We focus on the effects of fluctuations caused by a finite number of particles per volume. We show that, in spite of superdiffusive(More)
Recently, major advances in the climate–zooplankton interface have been made some of which appeared to receive much attention in a broader audience of ecologists as well. In contrast to the marine realm, however, we still lack a more holistic summary of recent knowledge in freshwater. We discuss climate change-related variation in physical and biological(More)
When examining the ecological effects of climate change those databases which contain the monitoring results of long-term time series have a key role. In our study we used the daily Lepidoptera data of the Hungarian Plant Protection and Forestry Light Trap Network within the time period between 1962 and 2006, in order to analyse the influence of the change(More)
Knowledge on the expected effects of climate change on aquatic ecosystems is defined by three ways. On the one hand, long-term observation in the field serves as a basis for the possible changes; on the other hand, the experimental approach may bring valuable pieces of information to the research field. The expected effects of climate change cannot be(More)
Our aim was to approach an important and well-investigable phenomenon – connected to a relatively simple but real field situation – in such a way, that the results of field observations could be directly comparable with the predictions of a simulation model-system which uses a simple mathematical apparatus and to simultaneously gain such a(More)
• Abstract. In this paper five different models, as five modules of a complex agro-ecosystem are investigated. The water and nutrient flow in soil is simulated by the nutrient-in-soil model while the biomass change according to the seasonal weather aspects, the nutrient content of soil and the biotic interactions amongst the other terms of the food web are(More)
Plate-like arrays of 3-4 nm particles were previously reported to occur on the P face of the plasma membrane of Tetrahymena. Surface replicas have now been prepared from frozen, deep-etched cells. These replicas demonstrate that plate-like arrays are manifested on the external surface of the plasma membrane. This observation lends support to the idea that(More)
The spatial distribution and seasonal dynamics of the crustacean zooplankton were studied in the Danube River and in its side arms near Budapest, Hungary. Microcrustaceans were sampled biweekly from October 2006 to November 2007 at eleven sites. Thermocyclops crassus, Moina micrura and Bosmina longirostris added up to 57.6% of the total density. Comparisons(More)
We investigated the associations between heart rate variability (HRV) parameters and some housing- and individual-related variables using the canonical correspondence analysis (CCOA) method in lactating Holstein-Friesian dairy cows. We collected a total of 5200 5-min interbeat interval (IBI) samples from 260 animals on five commercial dairy farms(More)
Our knowledge of the assembly processes of species-rich oribatid mite communities is fairly limited. Also, very little information is available on the effects of habitat factors on these processes. In this paper, the role of litter quality in pattern formation was investigated in a microcosm experiment using the “home-field advantage” approach. Native(More)
