Removal of pharmaceuticals in urban wastewater: High rate algae pond (HRAP) based technologies as an alternative to activated sludge based processes.
Systematics and evolution of small genera of carnivorous plants
Local-scale disturbances can benefit an endangered, fire-adapted plant species in Western Mediterranean heathlands in the absence of fire
Life history responses of meerkats to seasonal changes in extreme environments
Investigation of changes in seasonal rainfall and temperature influence vital rates and viability of an arid environment specialist, the Kalahari meerkat, through effects on body mass shows that climate change–induced reduction in adult mass in the prebreeding season would decrease fecundity during the breeding season and increase extinction risk, particularly at low population densities.
Interactive life-history traits predict sensitivity of plants and animals to temporal autocorrelation.
Cross-taxonomic evidence is provided that changes in the autocorrelation of environmental variation may affect a wide range of species, depending on complex interactions of life-history strategies.
Herbaceous perennial plants with short generation time have stronger responses to climate anomalies than those with longer generation time
It is concluded that key species-level traits can predict plant population responses to climate, and the relevance of this generalization for conservation planning is discussed.
Interacting livestock and fire may both threaten and increase viability of a fire‐adapted Mediterranean carnivorous plant
1. Quantifying interactive effects of environmental drivers on population dynamics can be critical for a robust analysis of population viability. Fire regimes, among the most widespread disturbances…
Effects of extreme rainfall events on the distribution of selected emerging contaminants in surface and groundwater: The Guadalete River basin (SW, Spain).
Effective prey attraction in the rare Drosophyllum lusitanicum, a flypaper-trap carnivorous plant.
The sticky leaves of Drosophyllum captured significantly more prey than mimics, particularly small dipterans, illustrating the effectiveness of this carnivorous species at attracting insects to their flypaper-trap leaves.
The myriad of complex demographic responses of terrestrial mammals to climate change and gaps of knowledge: A global analysis.
A systematic review of literature on demographic responses to climate, focusing on terrestrial mammals, reveals a strong mismatch between the locations of demographic studies and the regions and taxa currently recognized as most vulnerable to climate change.
