Altitudinally restricted communities of Schizophoran flies in Queensland's Wet Tropics: vulnerability to climate change

Wilson, Rohan; Trueman, John; Williams, Stephen E.; Yeates, David

Description

The Australian Wet Tropics World Heritage Area (WTWHA) contains a number of highland vertebrates predicted to face extinction due to a warming climate, but little is known about risks to invertebrates, which are vital to ecosystem health. This study investigates the distribution and abundance patterns of the Dipteran sub-order Schizophora along an altitudinal transect in the Carbine Uplands of the WTWHA using Malaise traps. The season of peak abundance changed with altitude, with highland...[Show more]
