Linking geographic demography and niche theory to predict suitable habitats for Eschscholzia californica, an invasive plant of Central Chile
One important hypothesis, in relation to the abundance of species, across geographical distributions, assumes that there are optimal sites (center of distribution) and sub-optimal sites (periphery) for survival and ...
Trophic niche differentiation in rodents and marsupials revealed by stable isotopes
Tropical rainforests support the greatest diversity of small mammals in the world, yet we have little understanding about the mechanisms that promote the coexistence of species. Diet partitioning can favor coexistence by ...
Translating Niche Features: Modeling Differential Exposure of Argentine Reptiles to Global Climate Change
Global climate change affects the distributions of ectotherms and may be the cause of several conservation problems, such as great displacement of climatic suitable spaces for species and, consequently, important reductions ...
The dimensionality of ecological networks
How many dimensions (trait-axes) are required to predict whether two species interact? This unanswered question originated with the idea of ecological niches, and yet bears relevance today for understanding what determines ...
The long and the short of it: a global analysis of hawkmoth pollination niches and interaction networks
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2017-01)
Proboscis length has been proposed as a key dimension of plant pollination niches, but this niche space has not previously been explored at regional and global scales for any pollination system. Hawkmoths are ideal organisms ...
Development of functional dentin incisors after a partial resection of the odontogenic organ of rat incisors
(Pergamon-elsevier Science LtdOxfordInglaterra, 2006)
Habitat degradation may affect niche segregation patterns in lizards
(Gauthier-villars/editions Elsevier, 2013-06)
Lizards partition resources in three main niche dimensions: time, space and food. Activity time and microhabitat use are strongly influenced by thermal environment, and may differ between species according to thermal ...
PLANT-POLLINATOR INTERACTIONS FROM FLOWER TO LANDSCAPE The long and the short of it: a global analysis of hawkmoth pollination niches and interaction networks
1. Proboscis length has been proposed as a key dimension of plant pollination niches, but this niche space has not previously been explored at regional and global scales for any pollination system. Hawkmoths are ideal ...
