Patterns of species-richness and endemism in the Gulf of Guinea reflect the region's biogeographic history and each island, of greatly differing size and degree of isolation, has acquired its unique sub-set of plants and animals separately from the neighbouring mainland, followed by adaptive radiations in situ.
The source of the nutrients required for egg production in zebra finches Poephila guttata
This study of the zebra finch Poephila guttata showed that food intake did not increase during egg production, but the decline in female body reserves of protein and fat were sufficient to account for most of the nutrients in a clutch of four eggs.
Depositional and Tectonic Setting of the Lower Silurian Hydrocarbon Source Rock Facies, Central Saudi Arabia
The Lower Silurian Qalibah Formation consists of two members, the (upper) Sharawra Member and the (lower) Qusaiba Member. The Qusaiba is the main hydrocarbon source rock for the known Paleozoic…
The Organic Geochemistry of the Jurassic Petroleum System in Eastern Saudi Arabia
Abstract The Jurassic sedimentary sequence of eastern Saudi Arabia contains one of the most impressive petroleum systems in the world. This petroleum system contains two excellent petroleum source…

ABSTRACT Palearctic migrants arrive in the northern tropics south of the Sahara between August and October, as the local rainy season ends. Some species remain in the Sahel and Sudan zones throughout…
Variation in haematozoan parasitism at local and landscape levels in the red-billed quelea Quelea quelea
The results do not contradict the hypothesis that male breeding plumage in this species serves to identify individuals rather than to indicate quality, and the greatest number of haematozoan lineages from any phylogenetic survey of a single host species to date are recovered.
Forecasting suitable breeding conditions for the red‐billed quelea Quelea quelea in southern Africa
A simple spatio-temporal model is described for southern Africa to show at weekly intervals those areas where the wet season has not yet started; the early rains migration threshold has been exceeded; and conditions are no longer suitable for new colonies to be established.
Carboniferous and Permian Leaioidea (Branchiopoda: Conchostraca) from Australia: Taxonomic Revision and Biostratigraphic Implications
A taxonomic revision of Australian leaioid faunas has reduced, by synonymy, the known Early Carboniferous taxa to three species viz., Hemicycloleaia andersonae (Tasch, 1979), H. grantrangicus (Tasch,…
