Unprecedented plant species loss after a decade in fragmented subtropical Chaco Serrano forests.
(Anne Mireille Regine Duplouy, Lund University., 2019)
Rewilding defaunated Atlantic Forests with tortoises to restore lost seed dispersal functions
The extinction of frugivores has been considered one of the main drivers of the disruption of important ecological processes, such as seed dispersal. Many defaunated forests are too small to restore function by reintroducing ...
Current and lost diversity of cultivated varieties, especially cassava, under swidden cultivation systems in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest
(Elsevier Science BvAmsterdamHolanda, 2002)
Prospects for biodiversity conservation in the Atlantic Forest: Lessons from aging human-modified landscapes
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2010)
Recent global assessments have shown the limited coverage of protected areas across tropical biotas, fuelling a growing interest in the potential conservation services provided by anthropogenic landscapes. Here we examine ...
Experimental assessment of Heliconia acuminata growth in a fragmented Amazonian landscape
(Blackwell Publishing, 2002-08-01)
1 Fragmentation severely alters physical conditions in forest understories, but few studies have connected these changes to demographic impacts on forest species using detailed experimental examination at the individual ...
Assessment of swaps and persistence in land cover changes in a subtropical periurban region, NW Argentina
(Elsevier Science, 2014-05)
A detailed spatial analysis of land cover changes was carried out in the periurban area of Great San Miguel de Tucumán and Sierra de San Javier, subtropical Argentina. Post-classification comparison of land cover maps of ...
Birds of Santa Teresa, Espírito Santo, Brazil: Do humans add or subtract species?
In uplands and lowlands of Santa Teresa, central Espírito Santo State, Brazil, 405 bird species were confirmed by field, museum, and literature studies. Of these, 16 seem to have disappeared, while 67 other species seem ...
Herbivory, foliar survival and shoot growth in fragmented populations of Aristotelia chilensis
(GAUTHIER-VILLARS/EDITIONS ELSEVIER, 2007-01)
Habitat fragmentation may modify ecological interactions such as herbivory, and these changes can impinge upon plant fitness. Through a natural experiment, we evaluated if herbivory, foliar survival and shoot growth of the ...
Assessing the distribution of a Vulnerable felid species: threats from human land use and climate change to the kodkod Leopardus guigna
(Cambridge University Press, 2014-10)
Climate change and habitat fragmentation are considered key pressures on biodiversity, and mammalian carnivores with a limited geographical distribution are particularly vulnerable. The kodkod Leopardus guigna, a small ...
