Mammal diversity, threats and knowledge across spatial scales
(University of Idaho, Moscow, ID (EUA) CATIE, Turrialba (Costa Rica), 2010)
Herein we provide a global dataset and analysis framework to address declines in mammal populations and ultimately extinction risk. By making this data freely and publically available we hope that it can bring the best ...
Morphological and anatomical patterns in Pontederiaceae (Commelinales) and their evolutionary implications
(Elsevier B.V., 2016-02-01)
Pontederiaceae include six genera and approximately 35 species of aquatic plants. The family exhibits great variation in morphology that makes the characterization of species and the understanding of infrafamilial relationships ...
Human-centric Wireless Sensor Networks to Improve Information Availability During Urban Search and Rescue Activities
(Elsevier Science, 2015-03)
When a natural disaster hits an urban area, the first 72 hours after are the most critical. After that period the probability of finding survivors falls dramatically, therefore the search and rescue activities in that area ...
Predation on gastropods by shell-breaking crabs: effects on shell availability to hermit crabs
(Inter-researchOldendorf LuheAlemanha, 2005)
Feeding regime and food availability determine behavioural decisions under predation risk in Pleurodema thaul (Anura: Leiuperidae) tadpoles
(British Herpetological Society, 2016-01)
Movement makes prey more vulnerable to predators. Antipredator responses usually have associated costs such as reduced feeding activity, and decisions made under predation risk may be affected by the feeding state of the ...
State-of-charge estimation to improve decision making by MAC protocols used in WSNs
(Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2019)
Energy conservation is a topic of great interest in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Various techniques have been proposed to minimise the energy consumption. One approach is to design medium access control (MAC) protocols ...
Foraging Behaviour in Magellanic Woodpeckers Is Consistent with a Multi-Scale Assessment of Tree Quality
(Public Library Science, 2016)
Theoretical models predict that animals should make foraging decisions after assessing the quality of available habitat, but most models fail to consider the spatio-temporal scales at which animals perceive habitat ...
The presidents and the national congress in the decision-making process of health policies in democratic Brazil (1985-1998)
(Inst Univ Pesquisas Rio De Janeiro-iuperjRio De JaneiroBrasil, 2002)
Toma de decisiones compartidas en la atención de pacientes con diabetes mellitus: un desafío para Latinoamérica
(Sociedad Médica de Santiago, 2017)
Patients with diabetes mellitus often have several medical problems and carry a burden imposed by their illness and treatment. Health care often ignores the values, preferences and context of patients, leading to treatments ...
