A total of 101 beetles were recorded in previously uninhabited tussocks
Adults were collected from grass tussocks
in early summer (December).
With enhanced kinetics, uptake by tussocks
exposed to patchily distributed nutrients was very similar to uptake with uniformly distributed nutrients for P, but declined slightly with increasing COV for N[[O.
In this study we manipulated in situ air temperature, but not nutrient availability, in Alaskan tussock
tundra, and measured direct warming effects on plant biomass, production, nitrogen (N), and ecosystem C[O.
07 close to vegetation (scattered grass tussocks
or shrubs) and 0.
Bumblebees nest according to species, in old mouse nests in hedgerows and woodland edge or in dense grass tussocks
For the 1992 experiment, tussocks
were selected and divided into 15 groups of three tussocks
each, five groups each for the 1-, 5-, and 30-d incubations, respectively.
The course has something for everyone - stream cS rossings, muddy banks, heather, bracken, tussocks
and a steep downhill finish with a little sting in the tail
From 11 June to 13 July 1982, we measured, in one control, one elevated-temperature, and one light-attenuation plot, (1) photosynthetically active radiation (400-700 nm; control and temperature plots only) with LiCor quantum sensors, (2) air temperature 50 cm above the ground with a shaded thermocouple, (3) soil temperature at 10 cm depth in moss mats between Eriophorum tussocks
, (4) soil temperature at 10 cm depth within tussocks
temperature; control and temperature plots only), and (5) temperature in the litter on the top surface of tussocks
Catherine said: "Lapwings like short grass with longer tussocks
to hide in and wet areas for feeding.
The cat tractors that run the plains to extract oil will permanently damage the permafrost on the coastal plain, and some of the plants that form the soft raised tussocks
of the tundra.
The skink was basking amongst snowgrass tussocks
in a revegetated wheel rut of an old track at 1530 m elevation.
