Environmental Drivers and Distribution Patterns of Carnivoran Assemblages (Mammalia: Carnivora) in the Americas: Past to Present

Ecological niche modeling and macroecological approach in order to assess whether constraints patterns in carnivoran richness and composition structures in replicated assemblages through time and space should reflect environmental filtering through ecological niche constraints from the Last Inter-glacial (LIG), Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) to the present (C) time

Multi‑criteria spatial identification of carnivore conservation areas under data scarcity and conflict: a jaguar case study in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia

Knowledge about carnivore species in data-poor countries, such as Colombia, is scarce which has the potential to result in poor landscape planning decisions. We present a multi-criteria spatial identification tool for conservation and management areas, focused on Jaguars (Panthera onca) in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, in northern Colombia

From hope to alert: demography of a remnant population of the Critically Endangered Atelopus varius from Costa Rica

Las Ranas Arlequín han sufrido declives severos en el Neotrópico. Presentamos una evaluación poblacional para una población recientemente descubierta de Atelopus varius de Costa Rica. Usando métodos de marca-recaptura desde septiembre de 2011 hasta febrero de 2013, estimamos parámetros de supervivencia y reclutamiento usando modelos Cormack-Jolly-Seber. Obtuvimos 222 capturas y estimamos bajas tasas de reclutamiento y alta ‘antigüedad’ (seniority)....
