Large subglacial lakes in East Antarctica at the onset of fast-flowing ice streams
The role of subglacial lakes needs to be considered in ice-sheet mass balance assessments because they initiate and maintain rapid ice flow through either active modification of the basal thermal regime of the ice sheet by lake accretion or through scouring bedrock channels in periodic drainage events.
β-Diversity and vegetation structure as influenced by slope aspect and altitude in a seasonally dry tropical landscape
It is argued that the classic model of slope aspect effect on vegetation needs reconsideration for tropical landscapes because the temporal behaviour of potential energy income throughout the year differed greatly between slopes.
Cues For Shelter Use in a Phytophagous Insect

Experiments with opaque and transparent shelters showed that visual stimuli are used for orientation towards shelters and also increase the probability of an individual remaining in a shelter.
Veranderingen van de mos- en licheenvegetatie in de droge duinen van Terschelling sinds 1970. II. Microklimaat
Hierbij volgen enkele aanvullingen over wat er de laatste decennia in de van oorsprong kalkarme duinen van Terschelling is veranderd. Dit in aanvulling op het artikel 'Mossen van Terschelling', dat
Use of Shifting Microclimatic Mosaics by Arthropods on Exposed Tree Trunks
The distributions of most species modified their access to heat or humidity consistently at several mutually independent scales, and the remaining species seemed to be restricted in their climate use by sensory or metabolic limitations.
Global warming and excess nitrogen may induce butterfly decline by microclimatic cooling
Using published data on butterfly trends in distribution, a comparatively greater decline in egg‐larva hibernators in European countries with oceanic climates and high nitrogen deposition is reported, which supports the hypothesis that climatic warming can lead to microclimatic cooling in spring by advancing plant growth, an effect worsened by excess nitrogen.
Grizzled Skippers stuck in the south: Population‐level responses of an early‐successional specialist butterfly to climate across its UK range over 40 years
Climate change has been predicted to facilitate poleward expansion of many early‐successional specialist invertebrates. The Grizzled Skipper, Pyrgus malvae, is a threatened butterfly in long‐term
