AFRICLIM: high‐resolution climate projections for ecological applications in Africa
Half of the African population, and most priority sites for conservation, are concentrated in mountain and coastal regions (Fig. 1). In these places, climatic gradients are steep and feedbacks… Expand
Environmental change and the option value of genetic diversity.
Rapid anthropogenic environmental change is altering selection pressures on natural plant populations. However, it is difficult to predict easily the novel selection pressures to which populations… Expand
Late-glacial and Holocene history of the dry forest area in the south
We document the Late-glacial and Holocene dry forest vegetation, fire and environmental history of the southern Cauca Valley in Colombia (1020 m). Expand
Terrestrial ecosystems from space: a review of earth observation products for macroecology applications
Aim Earth observation (EO) products are a valuable alternative to spectral vegetation indices. We discuss the availability of EO products for analysing patterns in macroecology, particularly related… Expand
Delimiting tropical mountain ecoregions for conservation
��������� � �� ���������� SUMMARY Ecological regions aggregate habitats with similar biophysical characteristics within well-defined boundaries, providing spatially consistent platforms for… Expand
Land use change and carbon fluxes in East Africa quantified using earth observation data and field measurements
Carbon-based forest conservation requires the establishment of ‘reference emission levels’ against which to measure a country or region's progress in reducing their carbon emissions. In East Africa,… Expand
Looking forward through the past: Identification of 50 priority research questions in palaeoecology
Summary 1. Priority question exercises are becoming an increasingly common tool to frame future agendas in conservation and ecological science. They are an effective way to identify research foci… Expand
Selection of experimental treatments, methods used and evolution of management guidelines for comparing and measuring three grazed farmlet systems
The Cicerone Project was a collaborative effort by livestock producers, researchers and extension specialists, which aimed to explore the profitability and sustainability of grazing enterprises on… Expand
Phylogeny and Conservation: The oldest rainforests in Africa: stability or resilience for survival and diversity?
Leaf area index for biomes of the Eastern Arc Mountains: Landsat and SPOT observations along precipitation and altitude gradients
Abstract Understanding of mechanisms underlying carbon flux dynamics in the Eastern Arc Mountains and their catchment areas is lacking, due to data shortage (e.g. biome specific canopy structure) and… Expand
