Disruption of ecosystem processes in western North America by invasive species
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2004)
Birth and expansion of innovation ecosystems: A case study of copper production
(Universidad Alberto Hurtado. Facultad de Economía y Negocios, 2015)
Mapping of ecosystem services: Missing links between purposes and procedures
The literature on ecosystem services mapping presents a diversity of procedures whose consistency might question the reliability of maps for decision making This study aims at analyzing the correspondence between the purpose ...
Simulated response to harvesting strategies in an exploited ecosystem in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico
(Ecological Modelling, 2004)
The impact of some optimized harvesting strategies on ecosystem structure was investigated using a mass-balanced model of the ecosystem in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico, where there are four types of artisanal fisheries ...
A Synecological Classification of Tropical Terrestrial Ecosystems: A first approach
Classification of terrestrial ecosystems is a very important task in the understanding process of vegetation patterns. It is a tool of mathematical organize the available information in understandable entities without ...
A Measure of Ecosystem Maturity.
(Ecological Modelling, 1999-01-01)
A measure to quantify maturity in ecosystems is proposed. The index is based on the analysis of flows of biomass. A measure of the uncertainty of the determination of the route of a given particle of matter will follow ...
The urban matrix matters: Quantifying the effects of surrounding urban vegetation on natural habitat remnants in Santiago de Chile
(Elsevier B.V., 2018)
© 2018 Elsevier B.V. Urbanization destroys and fragments natural habitats, resulting in a system of natural remnants embedded in an urban matrix. Urban natural remnants (UNRs) can provide multiple ecosystem services for ...
Functional traits, the phylogeny of function, and ecosystem service vulnerability
People depend on benefits provided by ecological systems. Understanding how these ecosystem services – and the ecosystem properties underpinning them – respond to drivers of change is therefore an urgent priority. We address ...
Ecosystem engineering across ecosystems: do engineer species sharing common features have generalized or idiosyncratic effects on species diversity?
Aim To integrate the effects of ecosystem engineers (organisms that create, maintain or destroy habitat for other species) sharing the same archetype on species diversity, and assess whether different engineer species have ...
