This paper discusses axially symmetric contact problems of rigid punch and poroelastic foundation interaction employing Cowin-Nunziato linear poroelasticity model. It is assumed that the punch base has a flat or parabolic shape, and the contact friction is neglected. Using Hankel's integral transform the considered contact problem is reduced to a solution of a singular integral equation with unknown contact stress. To solve this integral equation, the collocation technique is used. In the case of parabolic...

Evolution of Poecilimon jonicus group (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae): A history linked to the Aegean Neogene paleogeography

Simeon Borissov, Aneliya Bobeva, Dragan Chobanov & Battal Çıplak
The Aegean archipelago is among the largest on Earth with astonishing biodiversity within Europe. Its territory underwent a massive geotectonic transformation in Neogene that resulted in multitude of changes in land-sea configuration and disintegrated the formerly united Aegean land to a complicated mainland-archipelago system. Therefore, it represents an excellent laboratory for studying evolution of terrestrial fauna. In the present study we use a model group of flightless bush-crickets with annual reproduction cycle – Poecilimon jonicus...

Data from: Native drivers of fish life history traits are lost during the invasion process

Rapid adaptation to global change can counter vulnerability of species to population declines and extinction. Theoretically, under such circumstances both genetic variation and phenotypic plasticity can maintain population fitness, but empirical support for this is currently limited. Here, we aim to characterise the role of environmental and genetic diversity, and their prior evolutionary history (via haplogroup profiles) in shaping patterns of life history traits during biological invasion. Data were derived from both genetic and life...

Aim: A fundamental question in macroecology centres around understanding the relationship between species’ local abundance and their distribution in geographic and climatic space (i.e. the multi-dimensional climatic space or climatic niche). Here, we tested three macroecological hypotheses that link local abundance to the following range properties: (1) the abundance-range size relationship, (2) the abundance-range centre relationship, and (3) the abundance-suitability relationship. Location: Europe Taxon: Vascular plants Methods: Distribution range maps were extracted from the Chorological...

The relative importance of global versus local environmental factors for growth and thus carbon uptake of the bryophyte genus Sphagnum – the main peat-former and ecosystem engineer in northern peatlands – remains unclear. 2) We measured length growth and net primary production (NPP) of two abundant Sphagnum species across 99 Holarctic peatlands. We tested the importance of previously proposed abiotic and biotic drivers for peatland carbon uptake (climate, N deposition, water table depth, and vascular...
