Small Mammals Along SW-Atlantic Marshes: Diversity Correlates with Inland Habitats but Abundance Correlates with Marsh Characteristics
Tidal marshes are narrow wetlands distributed worldwide between the ocean and a variety of inland-habitats. The high diversity of interacting terrestrial habitats may influence terrestrial species composition and abundance ...
Atlantic small-mammal: a dataset of communities of rodents and marsupials of the Atlantic forests of South America
The contribution of small mammal ecology to the understanding of macroecological patterns of biodiversity, population dynamics, and community assembly has been hindered by the absence of large datasets of small mammal ...
Small mammal taphonomy: Intraspecific bone assemblage comparison between South and North American barn owl, Tyto alba, populations
(Academic Press, 1998)
Actualistic studies of small mammal taphonomy usually describe interspecific bone patterns of contemporary agents of bone deposition. These studies assume that each agent produces one specific bone pattern. Here we examine ...
Geographic variation in the size of mammalian prey taken by White-tailed Kites in the Americas
(Associação Field Ornithologists, 2004-06-01)
I examined the size of small mammal prey taken by White-tailed Kites (Elanus leucurus) in the Americas from data obtained in the literature and unpublished material from southern Brazil. Mean weight of adult small mammal ...
Scaling functional diversity of small mammals in desert systems
Although scaling biodiversity is a common topic in ecology, scaling functional biodiversity is a major theoretical and analytical challenge, mainly because trait differentiation and regulating processes occur at different ...
Herbivory and trampling by small mammals modify soil properties and plant assemblages
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2017-09)
Question: Do trampling and herbivory by small mammals affect salt marsh physical and biological properties?. Location: Upper salt marsh, Mar Chiquita coastal lagoon, Argentina. Methods: A field experiment was placed from ...
