Determinants of bird species richness, endemism, and island network roles in Wallacea and the West Indies: is geography sufficient or does current and historical climate matter?
Island biogeography has greatly contributed to our understanding of the processes determining species' distributions. Previous research has focused on the effects of island geography (i.e., island area, elevation, and ...
Organizational adaptation to climate change: learning to anticipate energy disruptions
(Emerald Group Publishing Ltd, 2017)
Purpose - This paper aims to investigate how organizational learning (OL) affects the development of anticipatory adaptation to climate change in companies. Because the need to learn increases in circumstances of greater ...
Observed (1970-1999) climate variability in Central America using a high-resolution meteorological dataset with potential for climate change studies
Average temperature (Tavg) data from stations and station-based gridded datasets at 50 km resolution were used to provide a high-resolution (5 km grid) dataset for Central America from 1970 to 1999. The procedure used ...
Climate refugia and impacts of global climate change on threatened status of endemic plant species in southwestern South America
The future climate regufia, are a crusial aspect for species conservation. We assessed the relationship between the climatic niche and the effect of global climate change on the future distribution of the species of two ...
Moving beyond methods: the need for a diverse programme in climate change research
Understanding effects of climate change on ecosystems will require a diverse range of approaches. We proposed using downscaled climate models to generate realistic weather scenarios as experimental treatments. Kreyling ...

This study aims to characterize the spatial and temporal variability of temperature and rainfall annual and seasonal, present the results obtained from the climatic water balance and determine the climatic types in the ...
Workers' Perspective About Organizational Climate in Knowledge Management: Automotive Assembly-Line Case
The purpose of this paper is to analyze the relation between Organizational Climate and Knowledge Management in the shop floor. The study is conducted in an auto part plant inserted in a Truck Factory with 7 partners. 44 ...
Means and extremes: building variability into community-level climate change experiments
Experimental studies assessing climatic effects on ecological communities have typically applied static warming treatments. Although these studies have been informative, they have usually failed to incorporate either ...
