My lord proposed to erect a miniature Babylon amid similar pleasant surroundings, a little dream-city by the sea, a home for the innocent pleasure-seeker stifled by the puritanism of the great towns, refugium

Our results also show that the ancient refugium
for the European snow vole in the Kopet Dagh was detached from the Hyrcanian refugium
in the mesic mountains to the south of the Caspian Sea.
The second recently identified unionid refugium
that we sampled occurred at the southern shore of Lake Erie (Crail et al.
The facility is a refugium
for an assortment of species, most of which are naturally found in the Guadalupe watershed and the Edwards Aquifer.
Objectives : The goal of the project is the conservation of the forest fauna refugium
in Carpathian mountains (area of Podkarpackie Voivodeship) through determination and conservation of the existing ecological corridors, ensuring maintenance of environmental cohesion for animal population.
The hyporheic zone could serve as a flow refugium
for benthic invertebrates during times of flooding in the Kokosing River (Williams & Hynes 1974).
Sampled sites (n = 16) within the spring systems contained species of fish of concern, and shared common environmental settings included consistent water temperatures that are within the range of the thermal tolerance of the red-rim melania snail, excluding the Big Bend National Park Refugium
Pond that exceeds tolerance limits (Mitchell and Brandt, 2005; Fig.
Nested hierarchies and scale-dependence of mechanisms of flow refugium
We elaborate several plausible expansion routes from a glacial refugium
in northern Afghanistan through the Hindu Kush Mountain Range into Pakistan and the western Karakoram.
My results suggest that current Bornean orang-utan populations are the result of a recent radiation throughout the island, following the probable confinement within a glacial refugium
in the Pleistocene.
vehiculum in the Klamath-Siskiyou region of its range with evidence of at least one glacial refugium
in the north and genetic structure across the Columbia River (Brunsfeld and others 2001; Steele and Storfer 2007).
This new evidence therefore puts at five millennia the duration of the Iberian Neanderthal refugium
, and counters speculations that Neanderthal populations could have remained in the Gibraltar area until 28,000 years ago.
