1. Dispersal of adult stream insects may be of considerable importance in regional population dynamics and colonisation of new sites, but quantifying the rate and extent of di...

Intra- and interspecific facilitation in mangroves may increase resilience to climate change threats

Journal Article
Huxham, M., Kumara, M. P., Jayatissa, L. P., Krauss, K. W., Kairo, J. G., Lang'at, J. K. S., …Kirui, B. K. Y. (2010)
Intra- and interspecific facilitation in mangroves may increase resilience to climate change threats. Philosophical Transactions B: Biological Sciences, 365, 2127-2135. https://doi.org/10.1098/rstb.2010.0094
Mangroves are intertidal ecosystems that are particularly vulnerable to climate change. At the low tidal limits of their range, they face swamping by rising sea levels; at the...
