      About this book. Ecology of Tropical Savannas examines the ecological characteristics of tropical savanna – most simply defined as those ecosystems which lie between the equatorial rainforests and the deserts and semi-deserts of Africa, Australia and South America. These savannas form a continuum of physiognomic types ranging from closed woodlands with a heliophytic grass understorey. is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, published by the Society for Tropical Ecology – Gesellschaft für Tropenökologie. It covers all fields of research in tropical ecology. ECOTROPICA publishes research articles, short communications and field station profiles; essays addressing current “hot topics” or opinions are.

      Phenological observations were taken for 26 woody species for three years in the Bala-fort tropical dry deciduous thorn forest located in north-eastern Rajasthan (27°4′ to 28°4′N and 76°7′ to 77°13′E) in NW India. The phenological behavior of most of the woody species was almost similar in different years, however, drought conditions affected the various phenophases of several by: Plant phenophases can be modulated by abiotic factors as well as by evolutionary history. We tested the influence of factors shaping the reproductive phenology of 17 co-occurring Piper species in a semi-deciduous seasonal forest in southeastern Brazil over a 12 month period. We describe the phenology, applying circular statistics to the flowering and fruiting phenophases for each by: 2.

This book examines the spider fauna of Panama itself, the habitats in which they live and the researchers who work on them. As well as containing a comprehensive species list, keys to the families and a list of the sites where spiders were collected, the book includes chapters on the biophysical geography of Panama, the present state of knowledge of the spider species from Panama, the spider Cited by:

Abstract. This volume’s authors make a case for phenology—not so much for phenology as it is commonly understood (a field technique of agricultural meteorology), but as an aspect of analysis and management of ecological systems or by: In book: Biology and Evolution of Ferns and Lycophytes, Chapter: Phenology and habitat specificity of tropical ferns, Publisher: Cambridge University Press, Editors: Tom A.

Ranker, Christopher H Author: Klaus Mehltreter. Phenology refers to recurring plant and animal life cycle stages, such as leafing and flowering, maturation of agricultural plants, emergence of insects, and migration of birds. It is also the study of these recurring events, especially their timing and relationships with weather and climate.

Tropical Stream Ecology describes the main features of tropical streams and their ecology. It covers the major physico-chemical features, important processes such as primary production and organic-matter transformation, as well as the main groups of consumers: invertebrates, fishes and other vertebrates.

Abstract. Periodic behavior of plants in tropical (here including equatorial) environ ments has received little attention until very recently (Frankie et al., ; Gibbs and Leston, ; McClure, ; Nevling, ; Rees, ).Some accounts of phenological events in the tropical literature occur only as brief notes which form small sections of larger papers (e.g., Ducke and Black, Cited by: Phenology is the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and interannual variations in climate, as well as habitat factors (such as elevation).

Examples include the date of emergence of leaves and flowers, the first flight of butterflies, the first appearance of migratory birds, the date of leaf colouring and fall in deciduous trees, the.

The objectives of this study were to investigate biogeographical and inter-annual patterns in savanna phenology along a km ecological rainfall gradient, known as North Australian Tropical Transect (NATT), encompassing humid coastal Eucalyptus forests and woodlands to xeric inland Acacia woodlands and shrublands.

Key phenology transition Cited by: Foundations of Tropical Forest Biology presents a timely collection of pioneering work in the study of these diverse and fascinating ecosystems. Modeled on the highly successful Foundations of Ecology, this book consists of facsimiles of papers chosen by world experts in tropical biology as the "classics" in the field.

The papers are organized into sections on related topics, each introduced. As climate change continues to dominate the international environmental agenda, phenology – the study of the timing of recurring biological events – has received increasing research attention, leading to an emerging consensus that phenology can be viewed as an ‘early warning system’ for climate change impact.
