The use of invertebrate fauna for evaluation of olive grove management regimes in Cyprus

Conference Paper 6th International Symposium on Agriculture in Croatia, Volume -, Issue -, 2011, Pages 313

Abstract

In recent years, new agro-environment programmes have increased in number globally, with the aim of conserving biodiversity in agricultural ecosystems whilst maintaining sustainable and economical crop production. In this paper, we determined the impacts of different management regimes on invertebrate fauna and diversity, in Cypriot olive groves. We analysed differences in invertebrate fauna and diversity of olive groves at high and low altitude with no management, groves with tillage only, or tillage, pesticide and fertilizer applications. Invertebrates were sampled from the canopy, soil beneath the canopy, and from the understorey vegetation. A total of 12,387 athropods were recorded and identified from 18 different orders or higher taxa. We observed significant effects of management regime on the abundance of arthropods in olive tree canopies. For example, the number of arthropods were significantly higher in low altitude, uncultivated olive groves compared to the other three management regimes. We also observed that the Simpson’s index of diversity for invertebrate orders was significantly higher in low altitude, uncultivated and tilled olive groves than the other two management regimes. Management had no impact on the number or diversity of invertebrates in understorey vegetation, while soil invertebrate abundance was lowest in high altitude olive groves but was not influenced by management in low altitude groves. Our results support the hypothesis that pesticide spraying reduces the abundance and diversity of invertebrates in olive groves, but also show that tillage has little impact on understorey invertebrates.

Preliminary investigation on the effects of habitat type on butterfly abundance and ecology within a Mediterranean mosaic landscape

Conference Paper 2nd International Congress of Middle East Butterflies, Israel, Volume -, Issue -, 2013, Pages 14

Abstract

Landscapes which are formed from a mosaic of different habitat types are increasingly being recognized as an essential resource for biodiversity conservation. Despite this recognition there is a need to improve our understanding of how different species, and in particular specialist and/or endemic species, respond to the different habitat types within such landscapes. During the spring of 2006 we undertook a preliminary study using the ‘Pollard Walk’ method to investigate how butterfly species richness, abundance and behaviour varied between different habitat types within the Karpaz Peninsula; a region in northern Cyprus which has recently been declared as a ‘Special Environmentally Protected Area’ and is representative of a typical Mediterranean mosaic landscape with a patchwork of agricultural, semi-natural and natural habitats. Surprisingly, due to a high abundance of the endemic species Maniola cypricola, the highest abundance of butterflies (86) recorded was in agricultural habitats. Behavioral observations revealed that the flora of field margins within the agricultural habitats provided a rich source of nectar for butterflies in the region.

Avifauna and Herpotofauna composition of the Kalkanlı wetland, Cyprus

Conference Paper -, Volume -, Issue -, 2016, Pages -

Abstract

A wetland ecosystem includes biotic and abiotic features which promote high biodiversity, particularly isolated wetlands, harbour a significant percentage of the regional fauna and they are critical habitats for herpetofauna and avifauna alike. An enormous variety of species of microbes, plants, invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, birds, fish and mammals are part of wetland ecosystems. To date there has been very little research made in Cyprus for determining biodiversity of wetland ecosystems. The aim of this research was to determine avifauna and herpetofauna of Kalkanli wetland. Kalkanli wetland is situated at north-west part of Cyprus and lies within the Akdeniz Special Environment Protected Area (SEPA). It is 4.5 km from the coast, surrounded by maquis, agricultural fields, Mediterranean forest and olive groves. It is covers 40 hectares of wetland habitat within the Akdeniz SEPA. During this research field surveys were performed between the years 2007-2015. Surveys were conducted during different seasons (Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer). For the herpetofauna surveys transect walk method has been used (1km x 4 different direction of the wetland). Bird surveys were performed by making point counts from a number of strategic vantage points. In this research a total of 40 wetland bird species were identified, 15 of them are Annex I listed bird species (EC Birds Directive). Additionally, a total number of 16 different herpetological species were identified, 3 of which are Annex II listed species (EU Habitats Directive). Cyprus has a relatively dry climate and therefore wetlands and wetland conservation policies are crucial for the island. This research has confirmed that wetlands are providing important habitats for Cyprus fauna and these sites should be conserved with long term conservation policies.

The comparative value of edible plants in home gardens of Cypriot rural village

Conference Paper International Conference on Ecology and Safety, Bulgaria, Volume -, Issue -, 2016, Pages -

Abstract

The heterogeneity of the Mediterranean rural landscape is the outcome of a combination of natural and cultural evolution which has a very rich biological and cultural diversity. Development of rural settlements with rural planning attitude is very important in terms of protection of local socio-cultural characteristics and plant biodiversity. In rural areas, the courtyard houses have a great value in terms of herb biodiversity. The rural village gardens should be assessed in a holistic perspective with ecological, local and cultural structure. There has been relatively little research on the courtyard gardens in traditional villages of Cyprus. The objective of this study was to record and value edible herbs and fruits derived from courtyard gardens in a rural village from Kyrenia region, Cyprus. This study has been carried out in Karmi village on the slopes of the Kyrenia Mountains facing towards the north. During the surveys in 2015-2016 the characteristics of the traditional courtyard houses were visited and edible plant species were determined within their courtyard gardens. A total of 17 different herb species and 20 different fruit trees were recorded during the surveys. Most widely used herb species in courtyard gardens which are also used in local cuisine as well were Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.), Sage (Salvia officinalis L. and Salvia fruticosa Mill) and Thyme (Thymus spp.). With this research the information of local herbs that have been used in traditional courtyard gardens was investigated, in addition the importance of protection of the natural and semi-natural landscapes in rural areas in terms of ``Rural Landscape Protection` has been underlined.

Contribution towards the knowledge of the Thysanoptera fauna of northern Cyprus.

Original Article Verlag Eugen Ulmer GmbH, Volume 115, Issue 6, 2005, Pages 277-281

Abstract

An exploration of the Thysanoptera fauna of northern Cyprus in 2003-2004 recorded 43 thrips species belonging to 23 genera. Five genera and 14 species are new records for the island of Cyprus: Dendrothrips phylliraea, Dendrothrips saltatrix, Haplothrips flavitibia, Haplothrips minutus [H. americanus], Haplothrips setiger, Limothrips angulicornis, Mycterothrips albidicornis, Mycterothrips tschirkunae, Neoheegeria verbasci [Haplothrips verbasci], Neohydatothrips gracilicornis, Odontothrips confusus, Oxythrips ajugae, Scirtothrips inermis and Scolothrips longicornis. The number of thrips species known from the island of Cyprus has increased from 67 to 81.

Ladybird Beetles (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) species of North Cyprus, including six new records

Original Article Zoology in the Middle East, Volume 39, Issue -, 2006, Pages 97-100

Abstract

During 2000–2001, 21 species of ladybird beetles (Coccinellidae) in 12 genera were recorded in northern Cyprus. Six species are new records for the island of Cyprus, namely: Cheilomenes propinqua, Diomus rubidus, Nephus hiekei, Nephus nigricans, Scymnus pallipediformis and Scymnus rubromaculatus. A noticeably higher number of coccinellid specimens was collected in non-agricultural areas (765 specimens) compared to agricultural areas with only 194 specimens. This difference was mainly caused by the dominance of two abundant species, C. septempunctata and H. variegata, in non-agricultural areas.

Occurrence of thrips (Thysanoptera) infestation on nectarines and its importance to fruit damage in North Cyprus

Original Article Journal of Plant Diseases and Protection, Volume 113, Issue 3, 2006, Pages 128-134

Abstract

The occurrence and population fluctuation of thrips (Thysan-optera) and the resulting damage to fruit were studied on different nectarine varieties at three locations in North Cyprus during 2004 and 2005. Direct sampling on nectarine trees revealed 21 thrips species with most of them encountered during petal fall and fruit growth. Only few thrips specimens were caught on blue sticky cards in nectarine orchards and adjacent segetal flora during January and February. The flight activity of thrips peaked with up to 334 thrips/card/week between end of April and beginning of May in nectarine orchards and adjacent segetal flora at all locations. Only Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande) was recovered from all nectarine orchards, but direct sample results remained low during the entire season with a weekly maximum number of four F. occidentalis on 50 branches in 2004 and twelve individuals in 2005. In both years, the first F. occidentalis occurred on all nectarine varieties during pink flower stage and full bloom. The variety “Maravilla”, flowering earliest beginning of February, had the highest rate of non-marketable fruit in 2004 with 27.5% and 37.9% in 2005. The latest flowering variety “Armking” showed also the lowest rate of non-marketable fruit in both years ranging between 1.2% and 10.3%. Damage to fruit appeared to depend more on the flowering time of nectarines than on the abundance of F. occidentalis.

Butterfly diversity in Mediterranean islands and in Pentadaktylos Pinus brutia forests of Cyprus

Original Article Springer Publishing, Volume 17, Issue 12, 2008, Pages 2821-2832

Abstract

We analysed the influence of contemporary geography on butterfly diversity for islands in the Mediterranean Basin. We found that island size and distance from the mainland has a significant effect on the number of species. We also used butterflies as an indicator group to identify the importance of forest habitats for biodiversity conservation in the island of Cyprus. To understand the relative importance of local vegetation characteristics of butterflies in the Pentadaktylos mountains transect counts were used to assess the abundance and butterfly diversity in two different forest types. A total of 1,602 butterflies and 23 species were recorded during this research. We observed highly significant effects of forest type on abundance and species richness of butterflies. For example, number of butterflies was significantly higher in old forest than young pine forest. Also, the abundance of endemic butterflies was highest in old forest habitats. Therefore, the survival of the majority of endemic butterflies in Cyprus may depend on conservation of old forests and their understorey plants.

Butterflies (Lepidoptera) highlight the ecological value of shrubland and grassland mosaics in Cypriot garrigue ecosystems

Original Article European Journal of Entomology, Volume 108, Issue 3, 2011, Pages 431-437

Abstract

We used butterfly assemblages to evaluate the ecological value of habitat mosaics within garrigue ecosystems in Cyprus. To understand the importance of the local plant communities for Cypriot butterflies, five plots in each of two habitat types (grass-dominated or shrub-dominated) were surveyed weekly for a period of five months in order to assess the abundance, species richness and diversity of butterflies. A total of 810 butterflies of 16 species were recorded. Indices of butterfly diversity, calculated across the whole season, were similar between grassland and shrubland dominated mosaics. However, species richness of all butterflies was consistently higher in grassland dominated mosaics throughout the whole season. The peak abundance of all butterfly species occurred during mid-season (late April - early May), with similar numbers observed in both habitat types. However, a greater abundance was observed during early and late season in grassland patches. The abundance of endemic species (Maniola cypricola, Hipparchia cypriensis, Glaucopsyche paphos) peaked earlier in the season in shrubland patches, but was higher in grassland patches in late season. This difference in seasonal timing of endemic abundance was dominated by the seasonal dynamics of M. cypricola. These results suggest that, while garrigue is characterised by its shrub flora, management to maintain a mosaic of grassland and shrubland could act to maximise the abundance and richness of indicator species groups of conservation importance.

Assessment of Biodiversity Differences between natural and artificial wetlands in Cyprus

Original Article Pakistan Journal of Botany, Volume 44, Issue 1, 2012, Pages 213-224

Abstract

Despite being a dry country, historically, Cyprus had many wetlands, both freshwater and saline. However, pollution, mosquito management, increased use of water and drainage of wetland areas for agriculture and building, led to the loss of many of the original wetlands. On the other hand, persistent water shortages have led to the construction of more than 100 dams on the island. In this study, the biodiversity of two natural wetlands, Ronnas River and Oroklini Lake, was compared to that of two man-made wetlands, Geçitköy (Panagra) Reservoir and Achna Dam. Baseline ecological surveys of plants, invertebrates and birds were carried out at bi-monthly intervals from February to June 2006. In total, 495 plant species, out of which 22 were endemic, were recorded with Gecitkoy (Panagra) Dam showing the highest plant diversity and Oroklini Lake the lowest. A total of 13 invertebrate orders were recorded, however, no statistical difference was found between the number of orders in artificial and natural wetlands. Furthermore, 18 butterfly species were recorded, with the highest diversity found at Ronnas River on Centaurea sp., Onopordum cyprium, Pistachia sp. and Cistus creticus. Less diversity found at Oroklini Lake and Achna Dam was due to an absence of maquis vegetation in these areas. Moreover, the highest butterfly diversity in all wetlands was observed in February and April, following winter rainfall in February, and increasing temperatures in April. Lower insect numbers and diversity in May were due to windy conditions. A total of 83 bird species were identified, with 32 recorded at Ronnas River, 29 at Oroklini Lake, 25 at Geçitköy (Panagra) Reservoir and 35 at Achna Dam. Most individuals were counted at Achna Dam (1493) and the least at Ronnas River (217). At Oroklini, Geçitköy and Achna, the most abundant species was the Common Coot while most species recorded at Ronnas were terrestrial, with the Common Wood-pigeon being the most abundant species. However the outcome so far is that there is little difference between these two wetlands types in terms of biodiversity richness. This study has demonstrated that artificial wetlands do provide important habitats for flora and fauna and these sites should be managed with biodiversity as well as water resources.

Habitat preferences of butterflies (Papilionidae) in the Karpaz peninsula, Cyprus

Original Article Nota Lepidopterologica, Volume 36, Issue 1, 2013, Pages 57-74

Abstract

The Mediterranean region comprises of some of the world’s unique and biogeographically important areas, harbouring high levels of biological diversity. On the other hand, anthropogenic disturbances are causing degradation of diverse ecosystems within the region. The aim of this study was to determine the habitat preferences of butterfly species and the potential threats they may face within the Karpaz Peninsula of Cyprus. To understand the importance of local vegetation characteristics of butterflies in the Karpaz Peninsula, ‘Pollard Walk’ transect counts were used to assess the abundance and species richness of butterflies. Butterflies resting on plants and those in flight were counted and identified. Preferred plant species and habitat types (EUNIS and EU Habitats) of the butterflies are also identified. During the surveys in 2006, eleven butterfly species were recorded. Two of them (Glaucopsyche paphos and Maniola cypricola) are endemic to Cyprus. Construction developments and road improvements were recorded within the region and have resulted in habitat loss and degradation. Our results provide valuable knowledge about important habitats for Cypriot butterflies within the Karpaz Peninsula and additionally highlight the need for their conservation in the face of large infrastructure developments and unregulated construction.

Current distribution and conservation status re-assessment of the Cyprus Tulip (Tulipa cypria: Liaceae), new data from northern Cyprus

Original Article Plant Biosystems, Volume -, Issue -, 2016, Pages -

Abstract

Tulipa cypria, a Cyprus endemic plant, is protected under local and international legislations and categorised as “Endangered” by IUCN. Detailed habitat and distribution information was previously limited, particularly for northern Cyprus. Our objective was to accurately map the distribution and to collect habitat, subpopulation and threat data to enable a conservation status reassessment at global and regional levels. We gathered all available data and conducted extensive surveys focusing on northern Cyprus in 2014–2015, identifying 17 extant subpopulations amounting to 7765 individuals and the loss of 2 historical subpopulations amounting to 3500 individuals. We infer a continuous decline in population size and identify the major cause to be habitat loss through agriculture, with 75% of global habitats and 100% of northern Cyprus habitats being affected by it. We update the global assessment to Endangered B1ab(iii, iv, v) + B2ab(iii, iv, v) and suggest regional assessments for northern Cyprus (Endangered B1ab(iii, iv, v) + B2ab(iii, iv, v)), UN Buffer Zone (Endangered D1) and southern Cyprus (Endangered B2ab(iii)). Conservation priorities identified include initiation of gene transfer and life history studies, population trend monitoring and exsitu conservation actions.

Important plant areas along the Kyrenia mountains

Original Article Journal of International Publications, Volume 10, Issue 1, 2016, Pages 349-359

Abstract

The Mediterranean basin is comprising of some of the world`s most unique biogeographically areas and harbouring high levels of biological diversity. This biodiversity is primarily due to the particular climatic conditions, habitat heterogeneity and different origins of its` flora. It is known that South Anatolia and Cyprus Island are one of the most important hotspot of plant richness and endemism. Kyrenia mountain range is one of the most important sites which have a unique and high ecological value for biodiversity and nature conservation. The high elevations of the Kyrenia mountain range supports many endemic plants, some of these endemics are listed under IUCN such as Delphinium caseyi L. In this research, important plant areas were identified along the Kyrenia Mountains during 2007-2015. Literature review and plant surveys were carried out in order to identify most important locations for plant biodiversity. A total of seven important plant areas were determined during the research, which is namely: Alevkaya, Bufavento, Beşparmak, Kivanctepe (Kornos), Karmi, St. Hillarion and Kantara. This research provided important information on plant biodiversity and their relation with mountainous ecosystems. In the same time, it has been underlined the importance of conservation of the high elevation mountainous ecosystems along the Kyrenia Mountain Range, Cyprus.

Evaluation of Environmental Worldview from the Perspectives of Undergraduate Students in north Cyprus

Original Article European Journal of Sustainable Development, Volume 5, Issue 4, 2016, Pages 233-241

Abstract

In recent years, environmental issues have been under considerable debate within the scientific community. In this context, environmental worldview has become a significant area of focus. In the light of recent studies it is understood that there are disparate variables influencing environmental worldview. Additionally it has been suggested that environmental worldview is a variable influencing environmental behaviour itself. As it is a significant aspect among the younger generations to adopt an environmentally responsible lifestyle, this study aimed at understanding the impact of several demographic variables such as gender and nationality on environmental worldview. In this research, environmental behaviour is further examined within the university students in Nicosia. A total number of 111 undergraduate students were chosen for this research. In the first section, several subjects were asked about their environmental knowledge and awareness. In the second section, with the help of Dunlop and Van Liere’s New Environmental Paradigm (NEP) scale, environmental attitudes of participants were measured, in order to understand the level of their existing worldview.

The impact of tillage and chemical management on beneficial arthropods in Mediterranean olive groves

Original Article Israel Journal of Ecology and Evolution, Volume -, Issue -, 2016, Pages -

Abstract

Woodlice (Isopoda: Oniscidae) are known to play important roles in soil profile development and nutrient cycling in agroecosystems. The aim of the present work was to understand the impact of different management regimes on woodlouse fauna in Mediterranean olive groves. The olive groves were located along the Kyrenia mountain range towards the north-west of Cyprus at two different elevations. We used pitfall trapping to compare the abundance of woodlice in groves that were (a) uncultivated at low altitude; (b) uncultivated at high altitude; (c) tilled at low altitude; (d) tilled and chemically managed at low altitude. A total of 1751 woodlice were collected and a significant effect of management regime on the abundance of woodlouse was observed. The low altitude uncultivated olive groves retained a higher number of individuals than the other three management regimes. Our results suggest that tillage alone did not impact severely on woodlouse abundance, but that tillage combined with pesticide and fertilizer application could lead to significant losses in woodlouse abundance in olive grove agroecosystems, with implications for the sustainability of soil quality and biodiversity.

The comparative value of edible plants in home gardens of Cypriot rural village

Original Article Journal of International Publications, Volume 10, Issue 1, 2016, Pages 360-364

Abstract

The heterogeneity of the Mediterranean rural landscape is the outcome of a combination of natural and cultural evolution which has a very rich biological and cultural diversity. Development of rural settlements with rural planning attitude is very important in terms of protection of local socio-cultural characteristics and plant biodiversity. In rural areas, the courtyard houses have a great value in terms of herb biodiversity. The rural village gardens should be assessed in a holistic perspective with ecological, local and cultural structure. There has been relatively little research on the courtyard gardens in traditional villages of Cyprus. The objective of this study was to record and value edible herbs and fruits derived from courtyard gardens in a rural village from Kyrenia region, Cyprus. This study has been carried out in Karmi village on the slopes of the Kyrenia Mountains facing towards the north. During the surveys in 2015-2016 the characteristics of the traditional courtyard houses were visited and edible plant species were determined within their courtyard gardens. A total of 16 different herb species and 20 different fruit trees were recorded during the surveys. Most widely used herb species in courtyard gardens which are also used in local cuisine as well were Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.), Sage (Salvia officinalis L.l) and Thyme (Thymus spp.). With this research the information of local herbs that have been used in traditional courtyard gardens was investigated, in addition the importance of protection of the natural and semi-natural landscapes in rural areas in terms of “Rural Landscape Protection” has been underlined.
