Biodiversity and distribution of macroinfauna assemblages on sandy beaches along the Gulf of Cadiz (SW Spain)
(Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC) * Departamento de Publicaciones, 2015)
In the current study, the macroinfauna communities inhabiting 12 sandy beaches along the Spanish coast of the Gulf of Cadiz were describe in order to characterize their unexplored biodiversity, their zonation patterns and ...
Tolerância e sensibilidade térmica em anfíbios
(Universidad de São Paulo. Brasil, 2012)
Atualmente vivemos um cenário de alterações climáticas em que se prevê o aumento da temperatura média e da ocorrência de picos de temperatura extrema, entre outros. Sabendo que os anfíbios correspondem a uma parte ...
Can amphibians take the heat? Vulnerability to climate warming in subtropical and temperate larval amphibian communities
Predicting the biodiversity impacts of global warming implies that we know where and with what magnitude these impacts will be encountered. Amphibians are currently the most threatened vertebrates, mainly due to habitat ...
Functional diversity of macroinvertebrates as a tool to evaluate wetland restoration
Ecological restoration of aquatic ecosystems has become widespread in recent decades. Although the recovery of biodiversity in restored wetlands has been studied from a taxonomic perspective, our knowledge of how functional ...
Sertularia marginata (Cnidaria: Hydrozoa) in the Mediterranean: an alien species in expansion?
(Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR), 2013)
Mature and dense populations of the tropical hydroid species Sertulariamarginata were detected in the Alboran Sea (Western Mediterranean) and in the Atlantic coast of the Strait of Gibraltar. Until now, it had only been ...
Lack of congruence between fundamental and realised aridity niche in a lineage of water beetles
Coping with aridity is a physiological challenge for all organisms, including freshwater ones. Aridity shapes distributions of aquatic species at fine and large geographical scales. Specifically, for aquatic beetles, the ...
Polar Marine Biology Science in Portugal and Spain: Recent Advances and Future Perspectives
Polar marine ecosystems have global ecological and economic importance because of their unique biodiversity and their major role in climate processes and commercial fisheries, among others. Portugal and Spain have been ...
Climate matching and anthropogenic factors contribute to the colonization and extinction of local populations during avian invasions
Aim: Concern about the impacts of biological invasions has generated a great deal of interest in understanding factors that determine invasion success. Most of our cur-rent knowledge comes from static approaches that use ...
