Protection and conservation of animals and vegetation
MetadataShow full item record
© Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2013. This chapter presents ways in which geoinformatics could be useful in supporting management and conservation efforts of animals and vegetation. Ways in which animals and vegetation impact on the environment, and vice versa, i.e., the ways in which the environment impact, through human-induced anthropogenic activities, on the animals and vegetation are considered. Specific emphasis on how geoinformatics could support these efforts through monitoring, thereby enabling remedial measures to be undertaken are presented.

Failure to launch? The influence of limb autotomy on the escape behavior of a semiaquatic grasshopper Paroxya atlantica (Acrididae)Bateman, Bill; Fleming, P. (2011)Autotomy is an extreme escape tactic where an animal sheds an appendage to escape predation. Many species alter their behaviour postautotomy to compensate for this loss. We examined the escape behavior in the field of a ...
