Estimating the geographic range of a threatened shark in a data-poor region: Cetorhinus maximus in the South Atlantic Ocean
(Oxford University Press, 2015-10)
The distribution of the planktivorous basking shark Cetorhinus maximus is influenced by zooplankton abundance at small scales and temperature at medium scales in the North Atlantic. Here, we estimate the distribution of ...

(American Entomological Society, 2015-01)
The South American big-headed ant Pheidole obscurithorax was first found in North America in Mobile, Alabama in 1949. Since then, this species has also been recorded in Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas. We compiled ...
Towards biodiversity hotspots effective for conserving mammals with small geographic ranges
(Gauthier-Villars/Editions Elsevier, 2017-01)
The main goal of using global biodiversity hotspots for conservation purposes is to protect taxa with small geographic ranges because these are highly vulnerable to extinction. However, the extent to what different hotspots ...
The influence of temperature seasonality on elevational range size across latitude: a test using Liolaemus lizards
Aim Identifying factors that limit species distributions is a fundamental question in ecology with implications for understanding global biodiversity patterns and species responses to environmental change. Theory suggests ...
