Quantum tunneling fragmentation model
A nonthermal quantum mechanical statistical fragmentation model based on tunneling of particles through potential barriers is studied in compact two- and three-dimensional systems. It is shown that this fragmentation ...
Are corridors, fragment size and forest structure important for the conservation of leaf-litter lizards in a fragmented landscape?
(CAMBRIDGE UNIV PRESS, 2009)
To investigate the implications of forest fragmentation for conservation of leaf-litter lizards the importance of fragment size, corridors and forest structure was examined in 20 forest fragments and six localities within ...
Fragmentation drives tropical forest fragments to early successional states: A modelling study for Brazilian Atlantic forests
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2011)
Land use leads to massive habitat destruction and fragmentation in tropical forests. Despite its global dimensions the effects of fragmentation on ecosystem dynamics are not well understood due to the complexity of the ...
Inquiring into the causes of depressed folivory in a fragmented temperate forest
Folivory is lower in forest fragments of the Maulino forest than in continuous stands. We experimentally assessed whether depressed folivory is related to a reduction in foliar palatability caused by the more xeric ...
Short-term effects of habitat fragmentation on the abundance and species richness of beetles in experimental alfalfa micro-landscapes

Short-term effects of habitat fragmentation on the abundance and species richness of beetles in experimental alfalfa microlandscapes
(SOCIEDAD BIOLOGIA CHILE, 2004-09)
Habitat loss and fragmentation are considered as the main causes of biodiversity depression. Habitat loss implies a reduction of suitable habitat for organisms, and habitat fragmentation is a change in the spatial configuration ...
