How individual movement response to habitat edges affects population persistence and spatial spread
How individual-level movement decisions in response to habitat edges influence population-level patterns of persistence and spread of a species is a major challenge in spatial ecology and conservation biology. Here, we ...
Grid-based simulation method for spatial electric load forecasting using power-law distribution with fractal exponent
A grid-based simulation method to forecast the spatial growth of load density in a distribution utility service zone is presented. The future load density is simulated considering a city's dynamic growth. A power-law ...
Effects of Thermal Heterogeneity and Egg Mortality on Differences in the Population Dynamics of Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) Over Short Distances in Temperate Argentina
(Entomological Society of America, 2013-05-01)
In temperate regions, the seasonal dynamics of Aedes aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culicidae) is mainly influenced by temperature, whereas the probability of local extinction depends on the egg mortality during the cold season. ...
Temporal variation of bird assemblages in a wetland: influence of spatial heterogeneity
(Science Reviews 2000 Ltd, 2013-08)
The temporal variation of bird assemblages at three sites within a wetland of the Parana River was examined. The aim was to obtain an overview of the influence of spatial heterogeneity on communities in such a variable ...
State transition detection in the spatio-temporal incidence of malaria
(Spatial and Spatio-temporal Epidemiology, 2014)
Effect of spatial heterogeneity on Zooplankton diversity: a multi-scale habitat approximation in a floodplain lake
Environmental heterogeneity is an essential quality of ecosystems as it has important implications in community structure. Macrophytes are a main component of environmental heterogeneity in floodplain lakes, and their ...
Nonequilibrium dynamics of the three-dimensional Edwards-Anderson spin-glass model with Gaussian couplings: strong heterogeneities and the backbone picture
We numerically study the three-dimensional Edwards-Anderson model with Gaussian couplings, focusing on the heterogeneities arising in its nonequilibrium dynamics. Results are analyzed in terms of the backbone picture, ...
Spatial variation and dynamics of flooding, canopy openness, and structure in a Neotropical swamp forest
