The Cultural and Ecological Importance of Mangr...

the author has been intrigued by the Pacific distribution of the American red mangrove since first visiting the SW Pacific in 1994. this spcies is abundant in the New World and in Samoa, Tonga, Fiji and New Caledonia but notably absent in Eastern Polynesia and the Indo-West Pacific. It had been generally assumed that the distance from South America and Samoa is too great for natural dispersal of the American mangrove to occur. It also had been suggested by earlier research that this species might have been intentially introduced from the Americas to Western Polynesia by early navigators. This research at first was motivated by the questions of how long could the American mangrove remain viable in seawater and if there was a cultural use preference by Polynesians that would promote its aboringinal introduction. Other questions then followed, such as why are five mangrove speicies found in Tonga and Fiji not found further east in Samoa? Thus began this indepth study to understand the cultural and ecological importance of mangroves in the SW Pacific.

Cold war in the tropics

This doctoral study sheds new taxonomic and ecological insights on a prominent brown marine algal group in tropical reefs. Using a DNA-based taxonomic approach Christophe Vieira reassessed the species diversity of the genus Lobophora in New Caledonia and globally. He disclosed a striking, hitherto unknown, global diversity, provided the first comprehensive tree of life for this group, and exposed the global geographical patterns of species diversity. Evolutionary analyses revealed that this group originated within the Central Indo-Pacific during the Upper Cretaceous, and diversified within the tropics. The ecological study showed that although potentially chemically armed and capable of bleaching corals, Lobophora species did not or rarely bleached adjacent corals in natural conditions. Results from allelopathic bioassays and grazing experiments led the author to conclude that (1) corals and Lobophora maintain a chemical-mediated status quo on healthy reefs, (2) chemical defense apparently does not deter grazing of Lobophora by prominent herbivores, (3) it is more likely that Lobophora avoids being grazed by escape strategies such as growing under the coral canopy.

New Zealand (Aotearoa in M ori) is an island country in the south-western Pacific Ocean comprising two main landmasses (the North Island and the South Island) and numerous smaller islands. The country is situated some 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea, and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island nations of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Due to its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Sphagnum novo-caledoniae is a species of plant in the Sphagnaceae family. It is endemic to New Caledonia. Its natural habitat is rivers. Sphagnum is a genus of between 151 and 350 species of mosses commonly called peat moss, due to its prevalence in peat bogs and mires. A distinction is made between sphagnum moss, the live moss growing on top of a peat bog on one hand, and sphagnum peat moss (North American usage) or sphagnum peat (British usage) on the other, the latter being the decaying matter underneath.

Roman imperial forces are massing to invade and enslave Caledonia. Wiglaff, son of the great warrior Mordru, is shunned by his father as unsuitable warrior material. An unusual child, Wiglaff has visions and an uncanny relationship with the natural world. He becomes the protégé of the shaman Ugard and learns how to focus his powers to bring rain and affect events. Meanwhile, Wiglaff's warrior sister Winna, quietly forms a band of warrior women from the nearby villages. The shaman, his protégé Wiglaff, and Winna join forces to combat this formidable enemy. Imperial forces mass for an onslaught against the villagers, and the situation looks hopeless until the shamans defeat the enemy by using white and black magic. Alma, a Roman double agent, insinuates herself into Wiglaff's household and provides critical intelligence about imperial intentions and movements. Wiglaff foresees a greater threat to Caledonia than imperial forces however, as two Roman scouts are taken prisoner by Winna's warriors who are followers of a crucified man named Jesus. When negotiations break down and the Caledonian Confederacy prepares to go to all-out war with Rome, will Wiglaff and his companions be able to save their village?
