Correlated Morphological and Genetic Patterns in Embothrium coccineum (Proteaceae) Across Climate and Geography: Can Embothrium Survive Patagonian Climate Change?
(Csiro Publishing, 2013-12)
Adaptive radiation and reproductive isolation can determine the biogeographic structure of any species. We examine patterns of biotic variation in Embothrium coccineum, a Proteaceae tree that spans 20º of latitude and is ...
Comment on "Recent changes in climate extremes in the Caribbean region by Peterson et al. (2002)
In a recent study, Peterson et al. (2002) analyzed daily temperature and rainfall data and concluded that “the climate of the Caribbean is changing” and that “these changes generally agreed with what is observed in many ...
Community structure and dynamics in climate networks
We consider climate networks constructed from observed and model simulated fields of three climate variables and investigate their community structure. We find that for all fields the number of effective communities is ...
Socio-climatic hotspots in Brazil
Brazil suffers yearly from extreme weather and climate events, which can be exacerbated in a warmer climate. Although several studies have analyzed the projections of climate change in Brazil, little attention has been ...
Sensitivity of Nothofagus dombeyi tree growth to climate changes along a precipitation gradient in northern Patagonia, Argentina
Understanding forest responses to climate variations is urgently needed for anticipating changes in forest composition and biodiversity. We use twelve tree-ring chronologies from Nothofagus dombeyi, the dominant tree at ...
A Ricardian Analysis of the Impact of Climate Change on South American Farms
(Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias, INIA, 2008)
Implementing climate change research at universities: barriers, potential and actions
Many universities around the world have been active centres of climate change research. However, there are a number of barriers to climate change research, stemming both from the nature of the research and the structure ...
The potential of achival sources for reconstructing climate and climate related processes in Latin America
(Past Global Change, 2002-12)
Following the conquest of Mexico and large portions of Central and South America in the 16th century, the Spanish Colonial administration began compiling documents on population, settlements, landscapes and economic ...
Changes in Koppen–Trewartha climate classification over South America from RegCM4 projections
The Koppen–Trewartha (K–T) classification is used to investigate the biomes change in the future climate over South America (SA). For the middle (2035–2060) and end (2075–2100) of the 21st century mean ensemble of Regional ...
