  1. Macro-benthic assemblages fromthe Lower toMiddle Pleistocene of theValle diManche (VdM)section(Crotone Basin, Southern Italy) were used to assess the value of merging paleoecological quantitative patterns into a sequence stratigraphic framework.…
  2. EUBrazilOpenBio is a collaborative initiative addressing strategic barriers in biodiversity research by integrating open access data and user-friendly tools widely available in Brazil and Europe. The project deploys the EU-Brazil Hybrid Data…
  3. UNFCCC's “Cancun safeguards” (COP 16, 2010) provide a strong call for comprehensive steps to prevent harm to biodiversity from REDD+ activities and to support its conservation. However, as non-binding ‘principles’ and due to their general wording,…
  4. This study provides a first description of the phylogeographic patterns and evolutionary history of two species of the mudskipper genus Periophthalmus. These amphibious gobies are distributed throughout the whole Indo-Pacific region and Atlantic…
  5. Aim: Climate changes in the past had a deep impact on the evolutionary history of many species and left genetic signatures that are often still detectable today. We investigated the geographical pattern of mitochondrial DNA divesity in the European…
  6. The deciduous tree species Pterocarpus angolensis occurs in the dry woodlands of southern Africa and grows under a broad range of environmental conditions. It is threatened by overharvesting due to its valuable timber (Blood wood, Kiaat) and by land…
  7. Three novel benzophenones (1-3) were obtained from the roots of Securidaca diversifolia (L.) S.F. Blake along with two known benzylbenzoates and isovanilline. Compound 2 (2,4-dihydroxy-3,3'-dimethoxy-benzophenone) showed moderate inhibitory activity…
  8. Institutes often lack funds and manpower to perform large-scale biodiversity monitoring. Citizens can be involved, contributing to the collection of data, thus decreasing costs. Underwater research requires specialist skills and SCUBA certification,…
  9. The sea acts as an effective dispersal barrier for most terrestrial animal species. Narrow sea straits, therefore, often represent areas where species are able to disperse from one land mass to another. In the Mediterranean Sea, the narrowest…
  10. Aim The jaguar, Panthera onca, is a species of global conservation concern. In Mexico, the northernmost part of its distribution range, its conservation status, is particularly critical, while its potential and actual distribution is poorly known.…
  11. In light of the growing concern over the potentially devastating impacts on biodiversity and food security of climate change and the massively growing world population, taking action to conserve crop wild relatives (CWR), is no longer an option — it…
  12. New light is shed on the evolutionary affinities and generic diversity in Alysseae (Brassicaceae) by means of nuclear DNA sequences. Internal transcribed spacer analysis was used to assess the relationships and the monophyletic status of Aurinia and…
  13. This paper outlines the grand challenges in global sustainability research and the objectives of the FP7 Future Internet PPP program within the Digital Agenda for Europe. Large user communities are generating significant amounts of valuable…
  14. Spatial data on species distributions are available in two main forms, point locations and distri- bution maps (polygon ranges and grids). The first are often temporally and spatially biased, and too discontinuous, to be useful (untransformed) in…
