Yearly low stratus and ground fog frequency maps of Taiwan (2003-2012)

Alexander Groos, Boris Thies & Martin Schulz
The relationship between satellite-derived low cloud frequency and the occurrence of tropical montane cloud forest (TMCF) in Taiwan was investigated. From daily MODIS cloud mask products between 2003 and 2012 the low cloud class was extracted and mean low cloud frequency was calculated for Taiwan. This low cloud frequency map was blended with an existing plot-based vegetation classification for Taiwan to analyze the relationship between low cloud frequency and TMCF occurrence. Receiver operating characteristics curves...

Seedlings morphological attributes in NUMEX 2013

Daisy Cárate & Jürgen Homeier
Analyses if morphological and physiological attributes of seedlings from the two most common species in NUMEX experiment at the three elevations. Changes in this attributes are altered by nutrient availability in this case fertilization might showed specific limitation for N or P.

MRp|SE Newsletter, Issue: 1

The first MRp|SE Newsletter offers research and knowledge transfer results: The test of models for small scale plant distributions shows the advantages of ensemble approaches. This result as well as a new method to analyze canopy evapotranspriation and leaf photosynthesis were awarded with poster prizes. A medical technique helps to study wood anatomy. In contrast to previous data the analysis of fertilized phosphorus revealed that it is not only retained in above-ground biomass and the...

Tabebuia Bulletin, Issue: 4

Tabebuia Bulletin Issue no 4, December 2015

The issue presents a bunch of Science and Knowledge-Transfer News. The first full-length paper in this journal shows in a model how the equilibrium between the pasture grass (Setaria) and the competing weed (bracken) depends on the temperature of the site, in other words on the elevation of the pasture.
In the mountain rainforest, tree roots and the mycorrhiza fungi respond species-specifically to nutrient manipulations. Phosphate...

Arctiinae species abundance 1999-2000 (species-site matrix)

Dirk Suessenbach, Konrad Fiedler & Christine Wallis
Nocturnal moths were sampled on 20 plots during three periods between 1999 and 2000 using light traps equipped with two backlight 15 W tubes operated between 18:30 and 21:30 local time (UTC-5:00). Catches were restricted to periods from three days after full moon until five days before full moon. Specimens were sorted to morphospecies within arctiinae moths (Erebidae: Arctiinae). For further information and details on the sampling sites see: Süßenbach, D. (2003): Diversität von Nachtfaltergemeinschaften...

Tree species - estimated species diversity (Matrix plots)

Christine Wallis & Jürgen Homeier
All woody plants (including palms and arborescent ferns) with a diameter at breast height (dbh) > 5 cm and a height > 1.3 m were sampled on 50 permanent plots each covering 20 m × 20 m between 2007 and 2008. Species richness was estimated at a coverage of 70% of the expected total species richness using rarefaction and extrapolation. The site scores for the first two dimensions of NMDS ordination analysis were based on...
