Kasai River is a tributary of Congo River and it is about 2, km. It is located in central Africa where it start in Angola, it serve as the border between DRC and Angola. It joins the Congo River in Democratic Republic of Congo. Image 1 was taken in the north direction using the 2D, the coordinates are 7'39'˚ S and 21'49'˚E. This study aims to explain the distribution, maturity and population structure of Meganyctiphanes norvegica and Thysanoessa inermis in springtime in relation to main hydrographic regions around Iceland: Atlantic in the southwest, Atlantic-Arctic mixture in the north and Arctic in the east.

Get this from a library. The use of GIS to predict the distribution of endemic plants in the Lefka Ori (White Mountains) of Crete. [Ioannis N Vogiatzakis; Geoffrey Griffiths].

A GIS-based empirical model for vegetation prediction in Lefka Ori, Crete Use of GIS to predict the distribution of endemic plants in the Lefka Ori book (PDF Available) in Plant Ecology (2) June with 92 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

A predictive vegetation model was established (Figure 5) and verified for plant community distribution in an area of the alti-mediterranean zone of the Lefka Ori massif, using GIS (Vogiatzakis. The use of fuzzy sets in a GIS approach has few applications in the MB although Vogiatzakis et al.

(b) have used it for mapping transitional areas in the Lefka Ori massif of Crete. The final 9node tree selected, classified correctly % of the samples.

The results were used to provide decision rules for the construction of a spatial model for each community type. The model was implemented within a Geographical Information System (GIS) to predict the distribution of each community type in the study by: Vogiatzakis, I.N.

Patterns and traits of the endemic plants of Greece. Greece is characterized by high plant diversity ( species) and endemism (%). This study attempts a first overall assessment of use of GIS to predict the distribution of endemic plants in the Lefka Ori book taxonomy, distribution, traits and conservation status of the Greek endemic plants.

The endemic species belong to 56 families and genera. Main conclusions The use of classification in combination with ordination techniques resulted in a good discrimination between plant communities and a greater use of GIS to predict the distribution of endemic plants in the Lefka Ori book of controlling environmental factors.

Integrated conservation actions for the relict and endemic tree Zelkova abelicea (Ulmaceae). Zelkova abelicea is an endangered, relict and the only endemic tree species of the island of Crete. This rare species is threatened mainly by browsing and trampling by flocks.

Lefka Ori (Greek: Λευκά Όρη, meaning "White Mountains") or Madares (Μαδάρες from the Cretan Greek μαδαρός meaning "without coverage, bald, bare of any vegetation for high mountain areas") is a mountain range located in Western Crete, in the Chania prefecture. The White Mountains or Lefka Ori occupy a large part of the centre of West Crete and are the main feature of the Listing: Ultra.

Vascular plant diversity and climate change in the alpine zone of the Lefka Ori, Crete. Abstract. The aim of this study is to analyse the vascular flora and the local climate along an altitudinal gradient in the Lefka Ori massif Crete and to evaluate the potential effects of climate change on the plant diversity of the sub-alpine and alpine by: Lefka Ori Climbing Notes.

More than endemic plant species are present on the Lefka Ori massif, an area of considerable ecological significance, where 30 plants are considered as rare and threatened with extinction according to the “Red Data Book of Rare and Threatened Plants of.

This study attempts a first overall assessment of the taxonomy, distribution, traits and conservation status of the Greek endemic plants.

The endemic species belong to 56 families and genera. Most of the endemic plants have a narrow geographical and altitudinal distribution by: alti-Mediterranean zone of the central Lefka Ori massif, Crete and identified the most significant of a set of measurable environmental variables influencing their distribution.

The aim of this pa per is to describe and evaluate a GIS-based spatial model for predicting the plant communities in the alti-Mediterranean zone of Lefka Ori, Crete. Pfab, M. and Witkowski, E.

This magnificent book, the first of three planned volumes describing, illustrating and distribution mapping the Greek endemic flora, will therefore be of vital importance.

It might be relevant to this discussion that the recent Red Data Book of Threatened Animals of Greece (Legakis and Maragou ), based on IUCN criteria, includes 47 species of terrestrial isopods whose distribution ranges hardly overlap (Sfenthourakis ), even if we exclude the troglobious species that are often endemic to a single cave.

Endemic to the island of Crete, Bupleurum kakiskalae occurs in the mountain range of Lefka Ori on the cliffs of five distinct localities, i.e. Kakiskala, above the gorge of Samaria, Melintaou, on Avlimanakou summit, near Athimolakkos and on Zaranokefala summit, above the gorge of Eligia.

This book brings together a selection of original studies submitted to Biodiversity and Conservation addressing aspects of the conservation and biodiversity of plants.

Plants are, along with terrestrial vertebrates, the best known organisms on Earth, and so work on them can be a model for that on less known organism groups.
