Geochemical fingerprinting of key lithologies and depositional processes across the upper boundary of the Opalinus Clay (Aalenian, Middle Jurassic, northern Switzerland)

Lauper, Bruno ; Deplazes, Gaudenz ; Vogel, Hendrik ; Jaeggi, David ; Wohlwend, Stephan ; Ariztegui, Daniel ; Foubert, Anneleen

In: The Depositional Record, 2021, vol. 7, no. 1, p. 25-51

The Opalinus Clay is an argillaceous to silty mudstone formation, notable in Switzerland as the selected host rock for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste. Its upper bounding unit (Passwang Formation and eastern equivalents) is composed of successions of mudstone, sandy bioclastic marl and limestone separated by ooidal ironstone beds. The lithostratigraphic transition is diachronous...

Climate change and alpine screes: no future for glacial relict papaver occidentale (papaveraceae) in western prealps

Fragnière, Yann ; Pittet, Loïc ; Clément, Benoît ; Bétrisey, Sébastien ; Gerber, Emanuel ; Ronikier, Michał ; Parisod, Christian ; Kozlowski, Gregor

In: Diversity, 2020, vol. 12, no. 9, p. 346

Glacial relicts, especially those with very narrow habitat requirements, are particularly affected by global warming. We considered Papaver occidentale, a glacial relict endemic to the Western Prealps, belonging to the alpine poppy complex (P. alpinum aggr.), as a model taxon to study the actual status and potential future distribution of species restricted to particular microrefugia. For...

Biocontrol of invasive weeds under climate change: progress, challenges and management implications

Sun, Yan ; Ding, Jianqing ; Siemann, Evan ; Keller, Stephen R.

In: Current Opinion in Insect Science, 2020, vol. 38, p. 72–78

Climate change is predicted to increase the frequency and impact of plant invasions, creating a need for new control strategies as part of mitigation planning. The complex interactions between invasive plants and biocontrol agents have created distinct policy and management challenges, including the effectiveness and risk assessment of biocontrol under different climate change scenarios. In...

Notes on the cheek region of the Late Jurassic theropod dinosaur Allosaurus

Evers, Serjoscha W. ; Foth, Christian ; Rauhut, Oliver W.M.

In: PeerJ, 2020, vol. 8, p. e8493

Allosaurus, from the Late Jurassic of North America and Europe, is a model taxon for Jurassic basal tetanuran theropod dinosaurs. It has achieved an almost iconic status due to its early discovery in the late, 19th century, and due to the abundance of material from the Morrison Formation of the western U.S.A., making Allosaurus one of the best-known theropod taxa. Despite this, various...

Areas of high conservation value at risk by plant invaders in Georgia under climate change

Slodowicz, Daniel ; Descombes, Patrice ; Kikodze, David ; Broennimann, Olivier ; Müller?Schärer, Heinz

In: Ecology and Evolution, 2018, vol. 8, no. 9, p. 4431–4442

Invasive alien plants (IAP) are a threat to biodiversity worldwide. Understanding and anticipating invasions allow for more efficient management. In this regard, predicting potential invasion risks by IAPs is essential to support conservation planning into areas of high conservation value (AHCV) such as sites exhibiting exceptional botanical richness, assemblage of rare, and threatened and/or...
