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
peccatorum in this island of the saints.
As the authors claimed, the areas with the highest genetic diversity of the European ground squirrel populations corresponded to biogeographically ancestral areas located exactly in Pannonian refugium
(Ricanova et al.
Among the topics are the cave at the end of the world: Cueva del Medio and the early colonization of southern South America, early human occupation in the southeastern plains of South America, mobility and human dispersion during the peopling of northwest South America between the late Pleistocene and the early Holocene, Mexican prehistory and Chiquihuite Cave (northern Zacatecas): studying Pleistocene human occupation as an exercise of skepticism, the end of an era: early Holocene Paleoindian caribou hunting in a Great Lakes glacial refugium
, and where tides of genes perpetually ebb and flow: what DNA evidence says about the peopling of the Americas.
The North Fork is the centerpiece for the Clearwater Refugium
, one of several theories that attempt to explain how this West Coast environment got here, 375 miles from the coast.
This suggests that although glacial Lake Saginaw once drained southwest across Michigan into the Grand River system, this corridor (Huronia) may not have been the primary access route into eastern Michigan from a Mississippian refugium
The second recently identified unionid refugium
that we sampled occurred at the southern shore of Lake Erie (Crail et al., 2011).
The facility is a refugium
for an assortment of species, most of which are naturally found in the Guadalupe watershed and the Edwards Aquifer.
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.
