Mycorrhizas in Agroecosystems
(Springer International Publishing, 2016)
Pollination in socio-agroecosystems: Recommendations to preserve the diversity of pollinators
(The Society of Plan Reproductive Biologists, 2020-01)
Pollinators play a crucial role in human well-being, as they contribute to pollination of many crops and influence plant reproduction and biodiversity conservation of native plants. There is a gradual disappearance of major ...
Composition of Amphibian Assemblages in Agroecosystems from the Central Region of Argentina
(Folium Publishing Company, 2011-04)
The anuran diversity, abundance, richness and evenness were examined in agroecosystems from the central region of Argentina, area that was greatly altered by agricultural activities. Relationships with climatic characteristics ...
Quantifying the impacts of ecological restoration on biodiversity and ecosystem services in agroecosystems: A global meta-analysis
Landscape transformation due to agriculture affects more than 40% of the planet’s land area and is the most important driver of losses of biodiversity and ecosystem services (ES) worldwide. Ecological restoration may ...
Evaluating a hybrid soil temperature model in a corn-soybean agroecosystem and a tallgrass prairie in the Great plains
(University of Nebraska Press, 2010)
Simulation models of soil-related biological processes usually require soil temperature data. Frequently these soil temperatures are simulated, and the soil temperature algorithms cannot be more complicated than the original ...
Hematological parameters of health status in the common toad Bufo arenarum in agroecosystems of Santa Fe Province, Argentina
(Brill Academic Publishers, 2005-12)
We compared some hematological parameters and values of plasma cholinesterase activity in adult Bufo arenarum from a control site and agricultural sites. The mean values of the plasma cholinesterase activity did not vary ...
Genetic structure of populations of the Pampean grassland mouse, Akodon azarae, in an agroecosystem under intensive management
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2019-09)
Agroecosystems in central Argentina are a good example of landscape modification by human activities. We used the Pampean grassland mouse (Akodon azarae) as a biological model to assess the effects of landscape fragmentation ...
Community structure of soil nematodes associated with the rhizosphere of solanum lycopersicum in a major production area in Argentina: a case study among agroecosystem types
The objective of this work was to describe the status of the assemblages of soil nematodes associated with tomato crops, in a major tomato production area in Argentina, by studying ecological indices of nematode food web ...
Jumping spiders (Araneae: Salticidae) in agroecosystems: a case study to know how friendly some crops can be for native fauna
(Taylor & Francis, 2019)
As part of a fragmented landscape, yerba mate and tea are perennial agroecosystems that provide habitat continuity for diverse arthropods. Our objective was to characterize the influence of these two agroecosystems on the ...
Identifying the factors that determine ecosystem services provision in Pampean agroecosystems (Argentina) using a data-mining approach
Ecosystem services (ES) have become a key concept in the assessment of natural resources, as a way to connect human well-being and ecosystems degradation. However, ES quantification is considered a basic problem because ...
