Nests and daytime refugia
of golden mice were located using radiotelemetry during two distinct seasons.
Areas known as refugia
have helped preserve biodiversity during previous periods of major climate change, and could once again in the future, according to Associate Professor Stephen Williams, director of the Centre for Tropical Biodiversity and Climate Change at James Cook University in Townsville.
Consequently, many species exhibiting simultaneous replacement of flight feathers migrate to molt in refugia
that provide both high food resources and low predation risk (e.
WFT population ratios, conservation of biological control, natural enemy refugia
, use of ultraviolet-reflective mulches, integrated resistance management, use of selective insecticides that have minimal effects on natural enemy populations, care to not overuse pesticides and especially those that induce WFT, and good sanitation.
Specifically, glacial refugia
during the late Wisconsin glaciation have been supported for the Queen Charlotte Islands, northern British Columbia (Hetherington et al.
Large earthen mounds have been constructed to serve as high ground refugia
for the rabbits to escape rising water.
As the national leader in fish propagation and rearing techniques, genetic and broodstock management, refugia
, fish health, and research, the National Fish Hatchery System works with partners to restore and maintain fish and other aquatic organisms, such as toads, salamanders, mussels, insects, and plants.
Questions however have been raised concerning the validity of the refugia
Results from these studies support the idea that small harvest refugia
may effectively protect nearshore rockfishes.
Clearly, untreated worms in refugia
would have played an important role in delaying emergence of resistance during the study period; our analysis suggests that attempts to increase community treatment coverage to 100% would have accelerated the emergence of clinically significant resistance.

They argued that much of northwest Europe was abandoned around the time of the Last Glacial Maximum, with populations dwelling in refugia
