Identidad colectiva : plan de mejoramiento integral del hábitat a partir de la producción social
(Universidad de La Salle. Facultad de Ciencias del Hábitat. Arquitectura., 2017)
The use of native vegetation as a proxy for habitat may overestimate habitat availability in fragmented landscapes
Native vegetation is often used as a proxy for habitat to estimate habitat availability in landscapes. This approach may lead to incorrect estimates of the impacts of habitat loss and fragmentation on species, which have ...
Short-term effects of habitat fragmentation on the abundance and species richness of beetles in experimental alfalfa micro-landscapes
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2004)
Assessing how habitat loss restricts the geographic range of Neotropical anurans
Habitat loss and fragmentation exert unquestionable negative effects in a wide range of taxa on both regional and local scales. However, there is a debate over whether habitat change impacts geographic species distribution. ...
Mechanisms affecting population density in fragmented habitat
(RESILIENCE ALLIANCE, 2005-06)
We conducted a factorial simulation experiment to analyze the relative importance of movement pattern, boundary-crossing probability, and mortality in habitat and matrix on population density, and its dependency on habitat ...
Local richness and distribution of the lizard fauna in natural habitat mosaics of the Brazilian Cerrado
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2009)
We investigate local lizard richness and distribution in central Brazilian Cerrado, harbouring one of the least studied herpetofaunas in the Neotropical region. Our results are based on standardized samplings at 10 localities, ...
Habitat heterogeneity drives bird species richness, nestedness and habitat selection by individual species in fluvial wetlands of the Paraná River, Argentina
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2016-11)
We assessed the relationship between habitat heterogeneity and bird species richness and composition within wetlands of the floodplain of the Middle Paraná River, Argentina. Given the high habitat heterogeneity in these ...
Una nueva óptica para entender y actuar en el hábitat popular
