## A framework for community interactions under climate change

Predicting the impacts of climate change on species is one of the biggest challenges that ecologists face. Predictions routinely focus on the direct effects of climate change on individual species, yet interactions between species can strongly influence how climate change affects organisms at every scale by altering their individual fitness, geographic ranges and the structure and dynamics of their community. Failure to incorporate these interactions limits the ability to predict responses of species to climate change. We propose a framework based on ideas from global-change biology, community ecology, and invasion biology that uses community modules to assess how species interactions shape responses to climate change.

Formation of the complex structure with 16 atoms in the orthorhombic cell, space group Cmca (Pearson symbol oC16) was experimentally found under high pressure in the alkali elements (K, Rb, Cs) and polyvalent elements of groups IV (Si, Ge) and V (Bi). Intermetallic phases with this structure form u...
2. Black-body radiation shift of the Ga$^{+}$ clock transition

arXiv:1305.4735 [physics.atom-ph] 21 May 2013

The blackbody radiation shift of the Ga$^+$ $4s^2 \ ^1S^e_0 \to 4s4p \ ^3P^o_0$ clock transition is computed to be $-$$0.0140 \pm 0.0048$ Hz at 300 K. The small shift is consistent with the blackbody shifts of the clock transitions of other group III ions which are of a similar size. The polarizabi...
3. Atomic scale friction of molecular adsorbates during diffusion

arXiv:1305.4864 [cond-mat.mes-hall] 21 May 2013

We present a study of the Microscopic origins of friction experienced by molecular adsorbates during Surface diffusion. Helium spin-echo measurements of a range of five-membered Aromatic molecules, cyclopentadienyl (Cp), pyrrole and thiophene, on a Copper(111) surface are compared with molecular dyn...
