Fitness ofOLS Model

The assumptions of the OLS linear regression model strictly concern the error term (e) that can be represented by the pattern of residuals. The residuals from the fitted model are important for checking whether the assumptions of linear regression analysis are met (Quinn and Keough 2004). The residuals of the OLS models tended to be symmetrically distributed and centered on zero, suggesting that these models were well fit for the data in rice paddies under the F-D-F and the F-D-F-M (Fig. 9.3a-c). Power analyses for the model F-D-F-2 and the model F-D-F-M also showed that these linear relationships were strong enough to model the N2O data (Table 9.4). On the other hand, a stronger power for the model F-D-F-2 relative to the model F-D-F-1 suggested that it was better suited for the data, although both models had the similar determination coefficient (r2) (Table 9.4). However, great cares should be taken in using the r2 values for comparing the fitness of different models, such as the...

Diversity and sustainability

For many years botanists were puzzled by the presence of certain nonessential chemical substances found within many forms of plant life. These chemicals had no apparent role within the primary production system of the plants that is, they had no clear link to the organism's growth, maintenance or regeneration. They were termed 'secondary metabolites' to distinguish them from the other, primary productive substances. These secondary substances were a puzzle because it was unclear why they would persist how could an organism expend some portion of its limited energy on the generation of such chemicals if they played no role in the plant's primary production Surely other, competing organisms would evolve without such secondaries and supplant them by virtue of relative fitness. Plant communities, nevertheless, clearly do produce many chemical substances that play no direct role in the furtherance of their primary productivity. The solution to this puzzle was found by broadening the scope...

Diversity within evolutionary systems

As will be developed further in the chapter by Fellows and Scofield, there is a fundamental trade-off for fitness purposes between the production of primary and secondary metabolites within plant species. Secondary metabolites were long-recognised but little understood because the evolutionary benefits from a non-productive chemical substance were not appreciated. The explanation that has been given is that coevolution between species within a predator-prey system generates the usefulness of such substances. Primary productivity can aid survivability but only to the extent that it makes the organism a better competitor within its environment. The capacity of the species to function within a system is actually the more fundamental criterion for success primary productivity is only useful to the extent that it contributes relative to this framework. Secondary metabolites fulfil this purpose because they are effective precisely by reason of their attunement to their environments.

Competitive interactions

While the negative effects of resource competition within shelters remain to be examined, several studies have documented antagonistic behavioral interactions occurring among shelter occupants. For example, the leaf webs constructed by Depressaria pastinacella on parsnip are aggressively defended from being usurped by conspecifics displaced from their own webs (Berenbaum et al. 1993). Similarly, cherry leafroller caterpillars (Caloptilia serotinella) utilize vibrational signals (i.e., leaf scraping) in response to intruders in what are hypothesized to be territorial disputes (Fletcher et al. 2006). While the mechanism is unclear, one species of leaf-tying caterpillar (Psilocorsis quercicella) attained higher pupal mass when reared singly in a leaf shelter than when reared with two conspecifics when food was not limiting (Lill et al. 2007), suggesting that such negative behavioral interactions can influence fitness measures. The very existence of these aggressive behaviors underscores...

Scaling effects of shelterbuilders

If shelter-building has a compounding effect on plant damage by attracting more herbivores, which has been shown in some systems (Marquis et al. 2002, Marquis and Lill unpublished data), and damage influences plant fitness, then shelter-builders have the potential to alter plant community structure. If plant damage is concentrated on a dominant competitor, engineers could indirectly increase plant community diversity (or decrease diversity if focused on inferior competitors). A variety of studies have documented the strong engineering effects of herbivores on plant communities (e.g., Wilby et al. 2001), but most of these have focused on soil disturbance by animals and its influence on recruitment. Few shelter-builders appear to routinely defoliate plants (outbreaking species in Table 6.1 are exceptions), but the successive use of shelters by other herbivores has the potential to compound plant damage over the season.

Age of the reactor days

Ecosystem stability often means different things to different disciplines. To some, stability refers to function and to others, it implies constant composition of the community. In this paper we are referring to the later as persistence. A difficulty in limiting the concept of stability to function is that information about the populations is often ignored, however, it is the properties of the populations, particularly their fitness parameters, that are the heart of the information needed to more intelligently manage communities. The results from our work indicate that an extremely dynamic community sustains a functionally stable system. Dominant members change dramatically, even over periods as short of 3.3 retention times. These results also indicate that functional parameters, like pH and COD, are inadequate to reveal community structure variation.

Improving plant resistance to biotic stresses

Breeding for disease and pest resistance is one of the primary objectives of breeding programmes. It requires an understanding of parasite biology and ecology, disease cycles and drivers influencing the evolution of plant-pathogen interactions because, unlike other traits, pest resistance is influenced by genetic variability in the pest population, especially in diseases. With evolving pathogen populations and changes in fitness favouring new pathotypes, as a result of climate change or not, the continuous improvement of resistance to biotic stresses is paramount in maintaining yield potential and genetic gains. Resistance is essential for food security in economies where farmers cannot afford to use chemical control, and

Physiological Ecology And Nichebased Responses

Physiological responses often determine our ability to predict species (population) responses to changes in environmental conditions in a reasonably analytical fashion (Dunham, 1993 Gutierrez, 1996). For example, abiotic (e.g., temperature or humidity) and biotic conditions (e.g., protein in food) may combine to affect developmental rate, growth, survival, and reproduction. In a niche-based framework (Maguire, 1973 Chase and Leibold, 2003), knowing an organism's response within an environmental state-space allows one to predict individual fitness and ultimately population responses (Figure 13.1) these types of responses have been worked out in some detail for some taxa for certain niche axes (Birch, 1953 Clancy and King, 1993 Busch and Phelan, 1999). Except under unusual situations when the entire structure of the ecosystem shifts (e.g., complete defoliation), insect pests will not have much impact on overall environmental conditions, so changes external to these agro-ecosystems are...

Interactions with biotic components phytophages

Both the reduced N concentrations and the hypothesized increases in C-based secondary compounds could potentially alter herbivore feeding behaviour (Lindroth, 1995). Herbivores might need to consume more of the nutrient-poorer foliage, which could have detrimental effects on trees (Williams et al., 1997). Results of several experiments indicate that the magnitude and direction of the herbivore response depend on how the concentrations of specific compounds determining insect fitness will be affected. For example, increased levels of some of these compounds could reduce the palatability of the leaves and subsequent herbivore consumption rates (Hunter and Lechowitcz, 1992). More studies on the characteristics of the biology of the herbivore population and on the interaction between trees and herbivores under elevated CO2 are needed before general conclusions can be drawn on the final effects on forest ecosystems.

Taxa specific responsesevidence for in situ effects of UVR on pelagic metazoans

Over the past two decades there has been a rapidly growing body of literature on UV-effects. A major share of this literature deals with laboratory studies or otherwise artificial exposure or artificial conditions. For obvious reasons, laboratory experiments rarely mimic ambient conditions with regard to water temperature, oxygen or food. Even more troublesome is the fact that spectral qualities, recovery radiation, dose or dose-rate may differ from natural conditions. In particular, the principle of reciprocity of UVR (or lack of such) is commonly ignored or not tested for. Commonly, high intensity over short periods may generate a different pattern of damage than comparatively lower doses over long periods. Also, we are commonly faced with a long list of potential effects, this chapter being no exception, but there are comparatively few studies that really provide evidence for UVR effects in situ. One particular challenge is that while present-day UV may pose both stress and...

Population Models Cases With An Evolutionary Focus

In the first modeling contributions on this topic, Laland et al. (1996, 1999) use a set of recursion equations to examine the dynamics of traits that code for environmental alteration, recipient traits whose fitness depends on such alteration, and the amount of resource in the environment. A simple two-locus engineering model shows that novel evolutionary dynamics can result from ecosystem engineering, with a key role played by temporal scales. Engineering can lead to the fixation of deleterious alleles, the elimination of stable polymorphisms, and a sta Several authors have examined the particular case of the evolution of flammability in plants (Bond and Midgley 1995, Kerr et al. 1999, Schwilk and Kerr 2002). Mutch (1970) speculates that higher levels of flammabil-ity could arise if plants had the ability to pass on their genes in spite of periodic fires. The question arises as to how exactly increased flammabil-ity could spread in a population, since the possessor of these alleles...

Technological Implementation

If CO2 scrubbing is to be used as part of CCS, therefore, scrubbing solutions must be developed that are more resistant to impurities in the flue gas and also have lower heat requirements for desorption. These new scrubbing solutions then have to prove their fitness under operating conditions. For this purpose, pilot plants are being erected near power stations that are fed with a small diverted flue-gas stream. In RWE's Niederaussem power station, for example, a pilot CO2 scrubbing plant was commissioned in August 2009 (see Figure 11.4). The pilot plants allow us to investigate the entire process of CO2 scrubbing, including the performance of the scrubbing solution. They have the same building height as a later commercial- scale plant in order to provide the necessary distance for the

Driving Forces of Impacts Often Interact in Complex Ways

Human populations are, in general, acclimatized to the weather patterns in their local region (Kalkstein and Sheridan Jendritsky and deDear). Tolerance to thermal extremes depends on the interaction of personal characteristics (age, fitness, gender, chronic diseases, etc.), behavioral choices (level of activity during heatwaves, etc.), and infrastructure (how much hotter buildings become than the surrounding environment). Morbidity and mortality during heatwaves also depends on whether a community has an effective and timely heatwave early warning and response system. Changing one of these driving factors can affect the impacts observed during a heatwave. This illustrates the need to view adaptation itself as a complex system, where changing one action can alter the timeliness and effectiveness of a warning or adaptive strategy.

Conclusion Philosophies Responsibilities and Adaptability

At any stage of development, human ability for maximum energy generation or production of food, even if in a seemingly sustainable way, does not necessarily indicate an optimum condition for survivability. The possible resulting build-up of populations, or even of expectation of resource availability, may with change create instability in the fitness of individuals or groups to survive. That is, what may

The evolutionary significance of mass extinctions

At the beginning of the 1970s the rather eccentric University of Chicago palaeobiologist Leigh Van Valen did some interesting research concerning the analysis of survivors of Phanero-zoic taxa which suggested that the probability of a fossil group becoming extinct was more or less constant in time. To account for this, Van Valen put forward his Red Queen hypothesis. Readers of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass will recall that the Red Queen explained to Alice that where she lived it took all the running one could do to stay in the same place. Van Valen's hypothesis is based on the assumption that all species within a given adaptive zone compete intensively. A successful adaptive response by one species is assumed to occur at the expense of other species, which must, as the 'quality' of their environment is reduced, either themselves adapt by speciating (i.e. evolving into new species) or becoming extinct. This phenomenon leads to an endless chain of adaptive responses, and in...

Physical Fragility Versus Biological Stability And Diversity

Similarly, plant communities that live near areas with fluctuating water tables are typically diverse with zonations of various species of reeds, sedges, rushes, and flood-tolerant willow and alder scrub. Each of these groups differs in their ability to tolerate flooding in relation to depth, duration, and seasonality (Chapter 8). When the flooding stress is reduced by drainage then the floristic diversity of the regions is reduced. Reed beds (Phragmites australis) are normally found as monospecific stands at the edges of lakes and rivers and suggest a homogeneous type of vegetation. However, within large reed beds on larger lakes molecular studies have shown that there are both morphological and physiological variation between the plants in the centre of a reed bed as compared with those at the edge of the stand, with the former being more tolerant of anoxia than the plants at the periphery (Keller, 2000). Thus a marginal single species plant population can structure itself...

Ozone Induced Changes in Plant Secondary Metabolism

In their ecosystem, plants have to cope with a plethora of potentially unfavourable conditions. Stress factors affecting plant's fitness not only derive from natural sources, such as adverse temperature fluctuations (heating, chilling and freezing), high irradiance (photoinhibition, photooxidation), osmotic imbalance (salinity and drought), hypoxia anoxia (flooding), mineral (macro- and micronutrient) deficiency, wounding, phytophagy and pathogen attack, but also from anthropogenic activities. The latter include xenobiotics employed in agriculture (herbicide, pesticides and fungicides), environmental (air, soil and water) pollutants and increased UV radiations. Particularly, many atmospheric pollutants, belonging to greenhouse gases, may increase the greenhouse effect, a natural warming process that prevents heat from diffusing to the outer atmosphere, thus balancing Earth cooling processes. Without the natural greenhouse effect, temperature on Earth would be much lower than it is...

Mutualism In Arctic Subspecies

Subspecies variation has been repeatedly noted as present in many arctic species (Table 6.2). A common explanation advanced for ecotypic variation is based on the need for plants to optimize their use of resources in response to competition. There is, however, an alternative interpretation for the frequency of ecotypic variation, which does not depend on competition and which has a particular aptness for the High Arctic situation where competition is minimal, and that is the increase in long-term fitness that comes from mutualism. Selection acting on individuals gives rise to population variations, which as a result of competition are associated with specialized habitats. This increases the habitat range occupied by the species and can be considered as increasing immediate fitness. In the Arctic these ecotypic variants are frequently associated with warm or cold, wet or dry, early or late sites. Thus they can also be considered as increasing long-term fitness by providing a reservoir...

Direct damage and means of protection lines of defense

The general, direct effects of UVR at the cellular level are rather uniform within the animal kingdom. These include first of all DNA-damage, membrane damage and a range of other cellular injuries that may be caused by intracellular photoproducts. They also include immunosuppression, yet the responses here may be more different across phyla, especially between invertebrates and vertebrates. Finally skin lesion, cancers and eye-damage (cataract) may be common responses in vertebrates. These effects may sum up in reduced fitness of various kinds, ranging from death to a slight decrease in life span, growth or rate of reproduction. These various types of damage will not be reiterated here. They may, however, be used as examples of reported responses when direct effects on different organisms are treated more specifically towards the end of this chapter.

Role Of Weather And Climate

Weather is the most important factor that determines the geographical distribution and periodic abundance of crop insect pests and parasites of animals. Weather controls the development rate, survival, fitness, and level of activity of individual insects the phenology, distribution, size, and continuity of insect populations migration and their establishment and the initiation of insect outbreaks (Pedgley, 1990 Drake and Farrow, 1988). Weather influence can be immediate, cumulative, direct, indirect, time lagged, exported, or imported. Indirect effects arise through host quality and parasite populations. A time-lagged influence is one that occurs at a later stage as a consequence of both past and current weather. Imported exported influences arise because insects are highly mobile, and outbreaks may be initiated by windborne migrations (Drake, 1994 Baker et al., 1990).

Characterization Of Biodiversity In Arid Lands

For example, North American I.arrea tridentata, the creosote bush, exists in three distinct forms (diploid, tetrapoloid and hexaploid chromosome races Hunziker et al. 1977), and the major taxa of the US mtermountain semi-desert, including Artemisia and Chrysathamnus, contain significant ecological and genetic differentiation within species (West 1988). Schuster et at. (1994) documented significantly higher levels of genetic variation within populations of four North American desert plants than in published averages for perennial plants in general, and attributed this to the selective pressure of environmental heterogeneity in arid lands. Phenotypic plasticity and other forms of variability may exist even within genotypes, and be especially important in deserts for example, Sayed and Hegazy (1994) discuss the fitness advantage of some annual plants being able to switch from C3 to CAM photosynthesis under field conditions.

Complex Adaptive Systems

In order to deal with turbulent circumstances, the adaptability of systems can be increased if the collective capacity to manage resilience is improved (Walker et al., 2004). This requires a collective view on the future 'dream', the collective future objective. This collective view can be better developed if the characteristics of self-organisation are taken into account. Self-organising systems are capable of increasing adaptability, or increase their overall fitness (Homan, 2005), and reach their complexity level by organising them-selves. When a new 'view on the world' (i.e. a climate proof region) is shared by thousands of individuals, who start to aim for the same objectives, the system will auto-develop from that point on. Johnson (Johnson, 2001) describes the following guidelines

The decline of diversity

Biological diversity is the product of the evolutionary process and it is in decline because of a relatively recent change in the hands that are on the controls. For millions of years the allocation of resources between competing life forms was accomplished by the evolutionary process in accord with the metric of relative fitness. Now the allocation of the resources necessary for survival is determined not by nature but by human societies. For whatever reason, humans have been able to usurp this evolutionary role for their own use. and uniform human tastes (across the globe). In fact, the current drive toward uniformity is contrary to the very idea of evolutionary fitness. Fitness implies competitive adaptation to the specific contours of a certain niche. The evolutionary process generates species that are well-adapted to their own specific niches through a process of niche refinement that is, a surviving species represents a 'good fit' to its own niche (Eltringham, 1984)....

Shifting Values in Response to Climate Change

In psychological parlance, life challenges spurred Tamsen Butler and Eva Nagel to care less about such materialistic aims and instead focus more on intrinsic values and goals. Intrinsic goals are those focused on self-acceptance (personal growth and pursuing an individual's own interests), affiliation (close relationships with family and friends), physical health (fitness), and community feeling (contributing to the broader world).4

Host Specificity of Caedibacter

Parasites are believed to have a major impact on host evolution. On the other hand, it is necessary for a parasite to adapt its growth dynamics to the host species or even to its genotype because the host must not be killed before the parasite has developed infectious stages. Optimal virulence should result in high parasite fitness in a host, whereas maladapted virulence could drive a parasite or the host extinct ('Suicide King' hypothesis e.g., Dybdahl and Stor-fer 2003). Co-evolution between parasites and hosts in some cases resulted in very specific (genotype-specific) interactions. Certain host genotypes can

The Environmental Challenge

But over the past decade or so, the bears have been forced to delay their journey longer than ever while they wait for the ice to freeze. This delay is having a highly adverse effect on their wellbe-ing, since they are spending less time on the ice and therefore have fewer opportunities of finding any food. As a result their health and fitness is being affected, their birth rates are falling and they are becoming less resilient to disease and to the demands of this harsh climate. Throughout the year they are also being forced to swim huge distances to find the ice cover they need and many are drowning in the process. So at one of their favourite venues, outside the tiny settlement at Churchill on Hudson Bay, where Pat Broe had made such a shrewd investment in 1997, their numbers are thought to have dropped by around one-quarter since the late 1980s.1

Architectural Diversity and Ecosystem Engineering

The framework of modern reefs is generated by scleractinian corals, with a significant contribution from coralline algae and early diagenetic cements. Architecturally similar structures, at least at a gross scale, have been built by microbial communities, sponges and archaeocyathids, tabulate and rugose corals, stomatoporoids, bryozoans, brachiopods, and rudist bivalves. Reefs are a specific example of the provisioning of architectural diversity, which can provide a positive feedback on biodiversity. Such ecosystem engineering allows species to modify the environment in ways that can affect, either positively or negatively, resource availability for other species (Jones et al., 1997). A related concept is niche construction, in which species modify their own environment in a way that influences the fitness of the population and, through ecological inheritance, the fitness of subsequent generations (Odling-Smee et al., 2003). Although ecosystem engineering can be recognized in the...

Environmental Limits To Reproduction

Limits to plant distribution can arise either from a failure to grow or an inability to reproduce. In many cases a failure to reproduce may be a more common response to environmental limitations than a failure to grow, probably because reproductive success requires more than just the development of viable seed. Reproduction is accomplished only when there is successful establishment of a new generation of reproductive individuals. The continued existence of viable populations in marginal areas is therefore dependent on accomplishment of flowering, fertilization, viable seed production, germination, and the establishment of new individuals in regions where the environment is uncertain and variable. These basic requirements for completion of the reproductive cycle illustrate the appropriateness of measuring genetic fitness in the Darwinian sense as the ability of an individual to contribute genetically to the next generation.

Hybrid Zones

Whether or not the hybrids are a transient phenomenon or whether they represent an evolutionary advance producing populations with greater fitness than their parents. Two points of view exist in relation to hybrids. The first is that hybrids are essentially transitory but manage to exist in a stable tension zone where selection against them is balanced due to a constant gene flow between the parent species, possibly aided by the vigour that is associated with heterosis in F1 and other and S. aquaticus only infrequently at lake edges showed that maternal effects played a role in the fitness of experimentally produced F1 hybrids, with offspring from S. jacobea mothers exhibiting higher fitness than those from S. aquaticus mothers (Kirk et al., 2005). This is the reverse of the situation described above for Orkney where S. aquaticus is the more frequent parent. This study concluded that the natural hybrids were not distributed in zones where they were most fit with respect to nutrient...
