Ribes grandisepalum, a shrub that lives in the forest of Abies in the state of Michoacan, Mexico, is proposed as a new species to science. The new taxon belongs to subgenus Coreosma section Calobotrya (Spach) Jancz. (Grossulariaceae) and is related to Ribes pringlei Rose. It is distinguished by its glandular-pubescent sepals that reach sizes of 5.5-8.5 mm in length, pedicels 7-17 mm in length and the ovary and fruit with glandular hairs.

    The invasion of Genisto hystricis-Cytisetum multiflori shrubs in a Salamancan "dehesa" (Quercus forest with low density), was studied using permanent quadrat and transect methodology. The results indicate that, of all shrub species, Genista hystrix Lge. is the predominant invading species in...

    Bio-indicators are often proposed to set conservation priorities in forest habitat owing to the difficulties of determining forest intrinsic ecological value. Here, we tested the efficacy of a number of potential bird indicator groups in monitoring beech Fagus sylvatica forest status by...

    Natural forest in South Africa occurs in small, scattered patches. Many alien tree and shrub species have been recorded from the forest environments but few are true forest invaders. Concepts have been developed around the natural disturbance regimes affecting forests and how changes in these...

    Salix aeruginosa is described as a new species from the state of Michoacán. It is found on Northern slopes of the Transversal Volcanic Belt, in wet ravines with both oak forest and oak-pine forest. This plant is closely related to S. jaliscana Jones, however, it differs in the shape of...

    We describe fruiting characteristics for 12 species in a community of strangler figs (Moraceae: Urostigma) studied in Panama. We quantify diurnal and nocturnal removal rates and proportions of fruits removed, and relate them to the activities of the main dispersers of the figs: bats and birds....
