Temporal variation in richness and composition of recruits in a diverse cnidarian assemblage of subtropical Brazil
(Elsevier B.V.Amsterdam, 2014-11)
Many studies have shown that the processes of colonization of new marine substrata, from settlement to recruitment, can leave long and lasting signals on the richness, composition and general structure of natural epifaunal ...
New species in Gymnocalycium: a call for common sense
(David Hunt, 2014-03)
The proper delimitation of plant species is far away from being an issue restricted to debateamong professional botanists. Topics like teaching and communication about biodiversity,ecological and biogeographical research, ...
Ecosystem engineering across ecosystems: do engineer species sharing common features have generalized or idiosyncratic effects on species diversity?
Aim To integrate the effects of ecosystem engineers (organisms that create, maintain or destroy habitat for other species) sharing the same archetype on species diversity, and assess whether different engineer species have ...
Drivers of metacommunity structure diverge for common and rare Amazonian tree species
We analysed the flora of 46 forest inventory plots (25 m x 100 m) in old growth forests from the Amazonian region to identify the role of environmental (topographic) and spatial variables (obtained using PCNM, Principal ...
Deconstructing richness patterns by commonness and rarity reveals bioclimatic and spatial effects in black fly metacommunities
Deconstructing biological communities by grouping species according to their commonness or rarity might improve our understanding about the processes driving variation in biological communities. Such an approach considers ...
Common Descent of B Chromosomes in Two Species of the Fish Genus Prochilodus (Characiformes, Prochilodontidae)
To ascertain the origin of B chromosomes in 2 fish species of the genus Prochilodus, i.e. P. lineatus and P. nigricans, we microdissected them and generated B-specific DNA probes. These probes were used to perform chromosome ...
