Canines as a measuring tool for leaf tent construction in Dermanura watsoni
Many animals are capable of constructing structures to modify the environment for their own benefit. The design of these structures requires animals to perceive dimensions. However, how animals take measurements to achieve ...
Genetic And Morphological Variation Of The Sooty-capped Bush Tanager (Chlorospingus Pileatus), A Highland Endemic Species From Costa Rica And Western Panama
We examined the effect of geographic isolation on morphology, genetic structure, and abundance of the Sooty-capped Bush Tanager (Chlorospingus pileatus), an endemic species restricted to highlands of Costa Rica and western ...
The roles of history and habitat area in the distribution and composition of avian species assemblages in the highlands of Costa Rica
Bird species assemblages in isolated Neotropical highland mountains have been moulded by the drastic climatic changes that occurred in late Pleistocene. Palynological evidence indicates that after the Pleistocene the ...
Effects of selective logging on the abundance, regeneration and short-term survival of Caryocar costaricense (Caryocaceae) and Peltogyne purpurea (Caesalpinaceae), two endemic timber species of southern Central America
In this study, we determined the effects of selective logging on the abundance of the last remnant populations of two tropical timber species with a restricted distribution, Caryocar costaricense and Peltogyne purpurea. ...
Efectos de la Fragmentación del Bosque Tropical Seco Sobre el Éxito Reproductivo y la Estructura Genética del Arbol Samanea saman
Effects of Dry Tropical Forest Fragmentation on the Reproductive Success and Genetic Structure of the Tree Samanea saman
Tropical trees are particularly vulnerable to forest fragmentation because of their low densities, self-incompatibilty system, and high rates of outbreeding. Forest fragmentation is likely to decrease gene flow, increase ...
Mating system and pollen flow between remnant populations of the endangered tropical tree, Guaiacum sanctum (Zygophyllaceae)
Tropical trees are generally long-lived making it difficult to assess the long-term effects of habitat fragmentation on genetic diversity. Maintenance of genetic diversity in fragmented landscapes is largely dependent on ...
Efectos de la Fragmentación de Bosques y la Fenología de Floración sobre el Éxito Reproductivo y los Patrones de Apareamiento de Pachira quinata, un Árbol de Bosque Tropical Seco
Effects of forest fragmentation and flowering phenology on the reproductive success and mating patterns of the tropical dry forest tree Pachira quinata
Los resultados de varios estudios sugieren que la fragmentación de bosques afecta los patrones deapareamiento y de éxito reproductivo de especies de árboles tropicales al reducir la actividad de poliniza-dores, la deposición ...
Genetic diversity in the endangered tropical tree, Guaiacum sanctum (Zygophyllaceae)
Fragmentation of tropical forests has changed continuous tropical landscapes into a network of poorly connected fragments, reducing population sizes and potentially increasing genetic isolation. This study quantifies genetic ...
