Predicting ecosystem collapse: Spatial factors that influence risks to tropical ecosystems
Biological traits explain extinction at the species level, but what factors explain collapse at the ecosystem level? Using ecosystem Red List criteria from the International Union for Conservation of Nature, we calculated ...
A framework for the classification Chilean terrestrial ecosystems as a tool for achieving global conservation targets
Countries that are signatories of the Convention of Biological Diversity are committed to the goal of protecting 17% of their natural ecosystems by 2020. The lack of an up-to-date, operational classification and cartography ...
Copper distribution in Mediterranean forest ecosystems Distribución del cobre en ecosistemas forestales de tipo Mediterraneo
We have analyzed the distribution of copper concentrations, and the effects of anthropogenic inputs, in the components of two forest ecosystems using a comparative approach. Ecosystem components were defined using a ...
An inverse relationship between stability and maturity in models of aquatic ecosystems
(Ecological Modelling, 2001)
The relationships among stability, maturity and complexity of ecosystems have been studied for many years. These ecosystem attributes are important in ecological theory and also for the appropriate management of resources. ...
Understanding the Effects of Practices on KDE Ecosystem Health

Ecosystem services across the landscape: the case of insect parasitism in the Chaco ecosystem, NW Argentina.
(Decanato de Estudios Graduados e Investigación. Congreso Estudiantil Subgraduado y Graduado de Investigación de la UPR-RP, 2012)
Can ecosystem properties be fully translated into service values? An economic valuation of aquatic plants services
(Ecological Society Of America, 2011-09)
We carried out an integrated analysis of ecosystem services in the Doñana social-ecological system (southwestern Spain), from the providers (different aquatic plant functional groups) to the beneficiaries (different ...
Assessment of quality of input data used to classify ecosystems according to the IUCN Red List methodology: The case of the central Chile hotspot
During the last decade, the IUCN has developed criteria analogous to the Red List of Threatened Species to perform similar risk assessment on ecosystems, creating the Red List of Ecosystems methodology. One of the most ...
Crab Burrowing Limits Surface Litter Accumulation in a Temperate Salt Marsh: Implications for Ecosystem Functioning and Connectivity
Burial of aboveground plant litter by animals reduces the amount available for surface transport and places it into a different environment, affecting decomposition rates and fluxes of organic matter to adjacent ecosystems. ...
