Attitudes toward Corporate Responsibilities in Western Europe and in Central And East Europe

Furrer, Olivier ; Egri, Carolyn P. ; Ralston, David A. ; Danis, Wade M. ; Reynaud, Emmanuelle ; Naoumova, Irina ; Molteni, Mario ; Starkus, Arunas ; Darder,Lecturer Fidel León ; Dabic, Marina ; Furrer-Perrinjaquet, Amandine

In: Management International Review, 2010, vol. 50, no. 3, p. 379-398

This study investigated the attitudes toward social, economic, and environmental corporate responsibilities of 3064 current managers and business students in 8 European countries. Participants in Western European countries had significantly different perspectives on the importance of these corporate responsibilities (CR) than those in Central and East European countries. Within each country,...

Body size–climate relationships of European spiders

Entling, Wiebke ; Schmidt-Entling, Martin H. ; Bacher, Sven ; Brandl, Roland ; Nentwig, Wolfgang

In: Journal of Biogeography, 2009///doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2699.2009.02216.x

Aim: Geographic body size patterns of mammals and birds can be partly understood under the framework of Bergmann's rule. Climatic influences on body size of invertebrates, however, appear highly variable and lack a comparable, generally applicable theoretical framework. We derived predictions for body size–climate relationships for spiders from the literature and tested them using three...

Climate oscillations and species interactions: large-scale congruence but regional differences in the phylogeographic structures of an alpine plant and its monophagous insect

Borer, Matthias ; Arrigo, Nils ; Buerki, Sven ; Naisbit, Russell E. ; Alvarez, Nadir

In: Journal of Biogeography, 2012, p. -

Aim To predict the fate of alpine interactions involving specialized species, using a monophagous beetle and its host plant as a case study.Location The Alps.Methods We investigated genetic structuring of the herbivorous beetle Oreina gloriosa and its specific host-plant Peucedanum ostruthium. We used genome fingerprinting (in the insect and the plant) and sequence data (in the insect)...

Contrasting patterns in the invasions of European terrestrial and freshwater habitats by alien plants, insects and vertebrates

Pyšek, Petr ; Bacher, Sven ; Chytrý, Milan ; Jarošík, Vojtěch ; Wild, Jan ; Celesti-Grapow, Laura ; Gassó, Núria ; Kenis, Marc ; Lambdon, Philip W. ; Nentwig, Wolfgang ; Pergl, Jan ; Roques, Alain ; Sádlo, Jiří ; Solarz, Wojciech ; Vilà, Montserrat ; Hulme, Philip E.

In: Global Ecology and Biogeography, 2010, p. -

Aim To provide the first comparative overview on the current numbers of alien species that invade representative European terrestrial and freshwater habitats for a range of taxonomic groups. Location Europe. Methods Numbers of naturalized alien species of plants, insects, herptiles, birds and mammals occurring in 10 habitats defined according to the European Nature Information System (EUNIS) were...

La recherche du sens de l’histoire personnelle et européenne : à travers les joies et les épreuves de la vie dans Vie d’une famille juive

Betschart, Christof

In: Revue Théologique des Bernardins, 2013, vol. 7, p. 51-65

Dans la Vie d’une famille juive, Edith Stein montre que, dans sa jeunesse, elle envisageait sa destinée personnelle en opposition avec son milieu, malgré la grande affection qu'elle nourrissait pour sa famille. Ce qui domine sa vie alors est son sens de l'amitié et son goût pour l'étude et surtout le travail philosophique. C. Betschart souligne que ce sens de son histoire personnelle doit...

The role of non-native plants and vertebrates in defining patterns of compositional dissimilarity within and across continents

Winter, Marten ; Kühn, Ingolf ; Sorte, Frank A. La ; Schweiger, Oliver ; Nentwig, Wolfgang ; Klotz, Stefan

In: Global Ecology and Biogeography, 2010, vol. 19, no. 3, p. 332-342

Aim Human activities have led to the spread and establishment of increasing numbers of non-native species. Here we assess whether non-native plant and vertebrate species have affected species compositions within and across Europe and North America. We also assess the effects of intra-continental species exchange using the example of vertebrates.Location European countries and North America...

Troubling travellers: are ecologically harmful alien species associated with particular introduction pathways?

Pergl, Jan ; Pyšek, Petr ; Bacher, Sven ; Essl, Franz ; Genovesi, Piero ; Harrower, Colin A. ; Hulme, Philip E. ; Jeschke, Jonathan M. ; Kenis, Marc ; Kühn, Ingolf ; Perglová, Irena ; Rabitsch, Wolfgang ; Roques, Alain ; Roy, David B. ; Roy, Helen E. ; Vilà, Montserrat ; Winter, Marten ; Nentwig, Wolfgang

In: NeoBiota, 2017, vol. 32, p. 1–20

Prioritization of introduction pathways is seen as an important component of the management of biological invasions. We address whether established alien plants, mammals, freshwater fish and terrestrial invertebrates with known ecological impacts are associated with particular introduction pathways (release, escape, contaminant, stowaway, corridor and unaided). We used the information from...
