The aim of our study was to complete the syntaxonomical scheme for grassland vegetation of the lowland, montane and alpine zones in the Pamir-Alai and western Tian Shan Mts in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan with some remarks on its environmental predictors. A total of 198 relevés were sampled in 2013–2018 using the seven-degree cover-abundance scale of the Braun-Blanquet approach. They were classified with k-means algorithmwith tranforming cover values to three level scale of the following intervals0%,...

Судьба текста в романе А. Битова «Преподаватель симметрии»

Екатерина Буханова
Статья посвящена выявлению в романе А. Битова «Преподаватель симметрии» концепции текста как экзистенциального феномена, функционирующего в процессе создания и при рецепции заложенных в нём смыслов. Альтернативные возможности текста концептуализировались Битовым как способ понимания бытия, закрепления авторских концепций в культуре, а также возможность их тиражирования, неизбежного искажения и профанирования. Определяются формы изменения авторского замысла при воплощении его в тексте и формы жизни текста в культурной традиции. Ключевые слова: А. Битов «Преподаватель симметрии», текст, рецепция, эволюция авторского...

Evidence for niche conservatism in alpine beetles under a climate-driven species pump model

Jillian Schat, Yi-Ming Weng, Roman Dudko, David Kavanaugh, Lan Luo & Sean Schoville
Aim Past glacial climate cycles have generated lineage diversity in alpine habitats, acting as a climate-driven species pump. It is not clear how much this process contributes to ecological diversification of alpine species. To examine this problem, we test patterns of genetic and phenotypic divergence in two co-distributed species complexes of flightless alpine ground beetles. Greater differentiation in ecologically-important functional traits would indicate that ecological selection is an outcome of oscillating climate change, whereas greater...

Halophytic vegetation and adjoining plant communities in Middle Asia (Pamir-Alai and western Tian Shan)

Sebastian Świerszcz, Marcin Nobis, Anna Wróbel, Ewelina Klichowska, Sylwia Nowak & Arkadiusz Nowak
In this paper, we complete the syntaxonomical scheme for halophytic vegetation and adjoining plant communities of the lowland, montane and alpine zones in the Pamir-Alai and western Tian Shan in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan with some remarks on its environmental predictors. A total of 217 relevés were sampled in 2014–2019 using the seven-degree cover-abundance scale of the Braun-Blanquet approach. Modified TWlNSPAN was used to classify plant communities based on species composition. The cover-abundance scale was transformed...

Biogeographic diversification of Eranthis (Ranunculaceae) reflects the geological history of the three great Asian plateaus

Kun-Li Xiang, Andrey S. Erst, Jian Yang, Huan-Wen Peng, Rosa Del C. Ortiz, Florian Jabbour, Tatyana V. Erst & Wei Wang
The evolutionary history of organisms with poor dispersal abilities usually parallels geological events. Collisions of the Indian and Arabian plates with Eurasia greatly changed Asian topography and affected regional and global climate as well as biotic evolution. However, the geological evolution of Asia related to these two collisions remains debated. Here, we used Eranthis, an angiosperm genus with poor seed dispersal ability and a discontinuous distribution across Eurasia , to shed light on the orogenesis...
