In the Mediterranean, Urothemis edwardsii is one of the most threatened dragonfly species with a relict population restricted to the northeast of Algeria. Despite the recent subtle local expansion in the geographic distribution of the species during the past decade, studies on the life history of the species are still lacking. We carried out a stud...

In recent years, the cork oak forests that characterise the Mediterranean region have been exposed to various factors that result in their degradation. These cork oak trees, due to increasingly accentuated anthropogenic activity, undergo withering at different scales.The objective of the study is to assess the impact of various factors that degrade...

The date moth Ectomyelois ceratoniae Zeller (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) is considered at present a permanent danger for date palm in Algeria. The polyphagia of this insect and its wide distribution on various hosts as well as the particular behavior of its neonatal caterpillars make this insect a major pest of the Algerian palm groves. In this context...

One of the responses of arid-land birds to ongoing climate warming is to shift their ranges towards higher altitudes to track species climatic optima. As this can influence their life history traits, more information is needed on breeding output from these border populations. We studied the breeding biology of the Trumpeter finch (Bucanetes githagi...
