Family Pilargidae (Polychaeta): new distributional ranges and a new record for the Chilean coast
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2000)
Climate change and lizards: changing species' geographic ranges in Patagonia
(Springer Heidelberg, 2014-08)
Ectothermic organisms strongly depend on temperature, making them an excellent model to study the impact of global climatic change (GCC). Under global warming, species may be forced to move toward colder environments, such ...
Are large-scale distributional shifts of the blue-winged macaw (Primolius maracana) related to climate change?
Aim To evaluate whether observed geographical shifts in the distribution of the blue-winged macaw (Primolius maracana) are related to ongoing processes of global climate change. This species is vulnerable to extinction and ...
Geographical implications of seasonal reproduction in the bat star Asterina stellifera
The reproductive cycle and environmental cues that regulate gonad production in Asterina stellifera were studied from April 2009 to April 2011 in a rocky subtidal habitat at the southernmost limit of its distribution (Mar ...
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. ...
Geographic range extension of Anorthoneis dulcis Hein in oases of the Baja California peninsula, México
(Iheringia, Série Botânica, 2011)
We provide the first record of Anorthoneis dulcis Hein in Mexico in two Oases of the southern Baja California Peninsula, thus extending the geographic distribution of this species in North America from East (Florida) to ...
Analysis of the potential geographic range of the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas (Thunberg, 1793) based on surface seawater temperature satellite data and climate charts: The coast of South America as a study case
Ecological niche modeling based on surface seawater (SST) and atmospheric (AT) temperature records was used to predict the potential range of distribution of Crassostrea gigas, focusing on the South American coast as a ...
Range extensions along western Atlantic for Epialtidae crabs (Brachyura, Majoidea) genera Acanthonyx Latreille, 1828 and Epialtus H. Milne Edwards, 1834
(Sociedade Brasileira de Carcinologia, 2012)
The present study provided information extending the known geographical distribution of three species of majoid crabs, the epialtids Acanthonyx dissimulatus Coelho, 1993, Epialtus bituberculatus H. Milne Edwards, 1834, and ...
