Intertidal copepods (Crustacea) in Chilean oceanic islands: a standpoint by null models and island biogeography
(UNIV CATOLICA DE VALPARAISO, 2013)
Day and night surface and atmospheric heat islands in a continental and temperate tropical environment
Urban areas cause several transformations in the landscape through the replacement of vegetation and permeable soils for buildings and waterproofing of surfaces. Such changes result in a different energy balance according ...
Daily evolution of urban heat islands in a Brazilian tropical continental climate during dry and rainy periods
High temperatures are typically recorded in tropical continental climate regions, with heat intensified by urban heat islands. This research attempts to investigate the intensity and maintenance of heat islands in the lower ...
Spatial variability and intensity frequency of surface heat island in a Brazilian city with continental tropical climate through remote sensing
Tropical cities located in inland Brazil typically have high temperatures that are extremely uncomfortable and detrimental to their population's health. This article analyzes the spatial variability of target temperatures, ...
Variability and variation in Rhyncholestes raphanurus Osgood (Paucituberculata, Caenolestidae)
(BioMed Central, 2020-04)
Background: Caenolestids are a group of poorly known South American marsupials with a restricted distribution in Páramo and Subpáramo environments of the Andes from Colombia and western Venezuela to Bolivia (represented ...
Divergence between passerine populations from the Malvinas - Falkland Islands and their continental counterparts: A comparative phylogeographical study
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2012-08)
Bursts of speciation have followed colonization of remote oceanic islands by diverse taxa, a process evidenced by island endemics around the world. The present study explores whether the Malvinas - Falkland Islands (MFI), ...
SURFACE HEAT ISLANDS: FREQUENCY OF SPATIAL INTENSITY AND VARIABILITY IN A CITY WITH A CONTINENTAL TROPICAL CLIMATE
(Univ Estado Rio Janeiro, 2019-01-01)
The purpose of this article was to analyze the spatial distribution of target temperatures and the frequency of surface heat island intensities in areas with characteristics relating to land use, vegetation cover, densities ...
Invasive Pleurodema thaul from Robinson Crusoe Island: Molecular identification of its geographic origin and comments on the phylogeographic structure of this species in mainland Chile
Robinson Crusoe Island, located 670 km west of the coast of central Chile, is characterized by a high number of endemic and introduced species of plants and animals. This island lacks native amphibians or reptiles, but ...
Spatial modeling of an urban Brazilian heat island in a tropical continental climate
Because climate aspects should be an important consideration when structuring urban spaces, this paper reports the results of combined field measurements and surface sensing data analyzed using statistical calculations. ...
