  • The ecological impact on the distribution of Pangolins in Deng-Deng
           National Park, Eastern Region, Cameroon

    • Abstract: One of the major impediments to studying wild pangolins has been the difficulty in locating them. In many areas where biodiversity surveys have been conducted, no pangolins were recorded, despite extensive nocturnal searches. The main objective of this survey was to assess the role of ecological factors on the distribution of pangolins in deng-deng national park. The research data collection method used for this study constituted the laying of fifteen 2-kilometre transects in the study area. The collection of relevant data such as pangolin feeding-material signs, burrows, trails, foot-prints together with ecological parameters such as vegetation type, weather conditions, landscape and forest canopy type. The survey revealed that weather conditions and Pangolin-sign encounter rate were significant, χ2 = 6.125df=9 P

  • The impact of some anthropogenic activities on river Nile delta wetland

    • Abstract: The River Nile delta shallow lakes namely, Edku, Burullus and Manzala are natural wetland ecosystems, connected to fresh water sources at the south and to the open sea at the north. Throughout their relatively short geological and hydrological history, the lakes received unpolluted fresh water from the river Nile. Egyptians have begun practicing some form of water management for agriculture and transportation since about 5,000 years ago. As a result of agricultural and industrial development over the last century, the lagoons have been the end points of the last Egyptian use of the Nile water before flowing to the Mediterranean Sea; currently, the lakes receive fresh water from polluted drains inflow.

  • Soil abiotic and microbial legacies jointly contribute to growth of
           invasive Solidago canadensis

    • Abstract: The invasion success of exotic plants strongly depends on soil properties of new ranges, however,little is known about the joint contribution of soil abiotic and biotic legacies to this success. Toaddress the role of soil abiotic and microbial properties in plant invasions and associated mechanisms,we conducted two complementary experiments.

  • Selected body temperature in Mexican lizard species

    • Abstract: Lizards are vertebrate ectotherms, which like other animals maintain their body temperature (Tb) within a relatively narrow range in order to carry out crucial physiological processes during their life cycle. The preferred body temperature (Ts) that a lizard voluntarily selects in a laboratory thermal gradient provides a reasonable estimate of what a lizard would attain in the wild with a minimum of associate costs in absence of constraints for thermoregulation. In this study we evaluated accuracy of modified iButtons to estimate Tb and Ts of three lizard species (Sceloporus poinsettii and Sceloporus jarrovii in northeastern Durango, and Ctenosaura oaxacana in southern Oaxaca, Mexico).

  • Worldview of Tribal Communities in Pachmarhi Biosphere Reserve of India

    • Abstract: Tribal communities living in the far fl ung areas, including forests and forest fringes, derive a set ofinferences and assumptions about the world around them, over the years. The present study, therefore,aims to document such worldview of tribal communities living in the Pachmarhi Biosphere Reserveof India. The questionnaire surveys and interviews were conducted in the villages dominated by tribalcommunities and information on their worldview was gathered. Two dominant tribal groups such asGond and Korku were identifi ed in the study area

  • Comparative study on the hydrographical status in the lentic and lotic

    • Abstract: The objective of this study is to assess the hydrography in the lentic and lotic ecosystems. Accordingto this study, the Water Quality Index of lentic ecosystem is highest in the Kukkarahalli lake (106.32),followed by Karanji lake (97.42), Varuna lake (95.73) and lowest in the Kamana lake (94.62).

  • Bioassay of Hydrological Status in the Lentic Ecosystems by using
           community parameters of Macrobenthos as a tool

    • Abstract: In pollution stressed environment, change in the community structure is reflected in the diversity pattern of the component species. These changes can be quantified as diversity indices, which are useful in water quality monitoring. In this study the diversity and density of macroinvertebrates carried out from the three lakes of Mysore (Bilikere, Hebbal and Lingambhudi lakes) to compute different community parameters and the results are interpreted to evaluate the water quality in these lakes.

  • Effect of Ocean Acidification on the Communications among Invertebrates
           Mediated by Plant-Produced Volatile Organic Compounds

    • Abstract: Chemical communications among plant and animal components are fundamental elements for thefunctioning and the connectivity of ecosystems. In particular, wound-activated infochemicals triggerspecifi c reactions of invertebrates according to evolutionary constraints, permitting them to identify preycues, escape predators and optimize their behaviors according to specifi c life strategies

  • Managing Large Herbivores in Protected Areas

    • Abstract: By nature of their size, grouping behaviour, and central position within most trophic webs, large terrestrial herbivores -- namely ungulates and elephants -- tend to be both keystone and umbrella species. Their proportionately large impacts on ecosystems extend both top-down (i.e. regulation of vegetation), but also bottom up (regulated their predators).
