An enormous difficulty for organic keep watch over has regularly been the danger of oblique negative effects at the ecology of different organisms. Our realizing of the ecological and evolutionary techniques underlying those results has beforehand been restricted and experimental tools occasionally missing. This ebook provides the most important papers from of the 1st overseas enterprise for organic keep an eye on worldwide symposium, held in Montpellier, France, in October 1999. It addresses the problems and issues desirous about organic regulate, and assesses the present prestige of overview of the ecological results.

Flüchten oder Bleiben? Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe und Ressourcen von Emigranten im Nationalsozialismus

Sylke Bartmann zeigt anhand der Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe von Emigranten unterschiedliche Umgehensweisen mit dem Nationalsozialismus und damit verbundene Repressalien und Bedrohungen auf. Der Fokus richtet sich dabei auf den Einzelnen als Akteur und Gestalter seines eigenen Lebens. Es wird die Frage beantwortet, inwieweit in den Prozessen der Biographisierung Ressourcen zum Ausdruck kommen, die das Leben im Nationalsozialismus (weiterhin) als zusammenhängend und sinnvoll erscheinen lassen - auch wenn dem einzelnen Menschen die Welt manchmal sinnentleert gegenüberzustehen scheint.

The figure depicts how the conditions for coexistence of the two prey species vary as a function of the level of control of the target species (assuming the other species is absent). What determines persistence of the non-target is the value of a compound parameter, the ratio r/a, for the non-target, as compared with the target. If the non-target has the higher value for r/a, it will not be excluded. If the non-target has a lower value for r/a, then given effective control of the target species, the non-target is in danger of exclusion.

Over time, local communities necessarily arise from a historical process of assembly (Holt, 1993; Ricklefs and Schluter, 1993), involving both colonization from larger biogeographical regions and local extinctions. A central theme of community ecology (in some ways, its most basic paradigm (Law and Morton, 1996)) is that local communities (defined at spatio-temporal scales where individuals can potentially interact) are restricted subsets of larger regional pools (Roughgarden and Diamond, 1986).
