Simulated climate change: the interaction between vegetation type and microhabitat temperatures at Ny Alesund, Svalbard by S Coulson ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Small polythene tents were used to simulate the effects of climate warming on two contrasting vegetation types (polar semi-desert and tundra heath) at Ny Alesund, Spitzbergen, Svalbard. Temperature microclimates are compared within and without tents and between sites with contrasting vegetation types. Summer temperatures were increased by about 5-degrees-C in the vegetation mat and by about 2-degrees-C in the soil at 3 cm depth. Cumulative day degrees above zero were enhanced by around 35% in the vegetation and by around 9% in the soil. Soil temperatures were greatly influenced by the nature of the overlying vegetation, which at one of the sites appeared to act as an efficient thermal insulator, preventing heat conductance into the soil from above and enhancing thermal contact between the upper soil layer and the cooling permafrost below. The significance of the observed temperature differences for the ecology of the plants and invertebrates is discussed
Low summer temperatures: a potential mortality factor for high Arctic soil microarthropods? by S J Coulson ( Book )

Aspects of cold hardiness in Steganacarus magnus (Acari: Cryptostigmata) by N. R Webb ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Supercooling points and the presence of antifreeze compounds were measured for both nymphs and adults of Steganacarus magnus (Nicolet) collected from a coniferous forest soil in southern England in March, June and November. The mean supercooling point of nymphs was -14.4-degrees-C and of adults, -11.7- degrees-C. Acclimation to low temperatures (1-2- degrees-C) did not alter these values significantly. The total concentration of antifreeze compounds in the nymphs was 4.46 mug mg- 1 and in the adults 0.91 mug mg-1. These results are compared with similar data for other species of cryptostigmatic mites
Hydrology, water availability and tundra ecosystem function in a changing climate: the need for a closer integration of ideas? by I. D Hodkinson ( Book )

Economy and ecology of heathlands ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Heidelandschappen kennen een lange historie van menselijk invloed en landgebruik. Door de eeuwen heen hebben ze een belangrijke rol gespeeld als half-agrarische landschappen, jacht- als landbouwgebieden. De grote variatie in gebruik heeft geleid tot een grote culturele verschillen in het hele Atlantische deel van Europa, van Spanje en Portugal tot Noorwegen, Duitsland en Ierland. Dit boek laat ons de diversiteit in gebruik zien over heel Europa gecombineerd met de nieuwste inzichten vanuit het ecologisch onderzoek en informatie over de Natura 2000 status, die de meeste van deze heidevelden tegenwoordig hebben. Centraal staat hoe de kosten voor herstel en behoud van deze gebieden gewaarborgd kunnen worden. Kunnen nieuwe vormen van gemeenschappelijke zorg en gebruik hierbij helpen, of geven andere typen van doorstroming van opbrengsten van de heide betere mogelijkheden?
