The Maipo River as a biogeographical barrier to Liolaemus monticola (Tropiduridae) in the mountain ranges of central Chile
Univariate and multivariate statistical analyses of 39 meristic characters recorded for 12 samples of the lizard Liolaemus monticola were used to compare geographical variation in morphology with chromosomal races north ...
Patterns of phenotypic selection for oil and nectar in Monttea aphylla (Plantaginaceae) in a geographic mosaic of interactions with pollinators
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2017-07)
Oil-flower species are highly specialized attracting a narrow group of oil-collecting bees in contrast to nectar-flower species visited by a wide diversity of pollinators. The vast majority of the oil species lack nectar ...
Scat detection dogs, DNA and species distribution modelling reveal a diminutive geographical range for the Vulnerable small red brocket deer Mazama bororo
(Cambridge Univ Press, 2017-10-01)
The small red brocket deer Mazama bororo is endemic to the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, a biome that has been greatly fragmented and altered by human activities. This elusive species is morphologically similar to the red ...
Alien spiders in Chile: Evaluating Darwin's naturalization hypothesis
(American Museum of Natural History, 2015)
Darwin's naturalization hypothesis (DNH) states that the successful establishment of alien species is favored when the phylogenetic relationship between the colonizer and the recipient community is distant. From a population ...
Geographical distribution of vampire bat-related cattle rabies in Brazil
(Japan Soc Vet Sci, 2006-10-01)
Seventy-seven rabies virus (RV) isolates originating from Brazilian cattle were genetically characterized. Partial nucleoprotein gene sequences of these isolates were phylogenetically and geographically analyzed. Cattle ...
Global habitat suitability models of terrestrial mammals
(The Royal Society, 2011-09)
Detailed large-scale information on mammal distribution has often been lacking, hindering conservation efforts. We used the information from the 2009 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as a baseline for developing habitat ...
