Minimising Mortality in Endangered Raptors Due to Power Lines: The Importance of Spatial Aggregation to Optimize the Application of Mitigation Measures
TLDR
Pylons with cable insulation showed higher electrocution rates than unimproved pylons, both for raptors and eagles, despite this is the most widely used and recommended mitigation measure in several countries.
Manipulating size, amount and appearance of food inputs to optimize supplementary feeding programs for European vultures
TLDR
The results suggest that carrion features influence differential selection between species and age-classes, and using medium-size ungulates presented as small, abundant and scattered pieces favors the consumption of the resource by the most endangered species.
Effect of Methodological and Ecological Approaches on Heterogeneity of Nest-Site Selection of a Long-Lived Vulture
TLDR
A meta-analysis regarding the factors determining nest-site selection heterogeneity for a single species at broad scale was achieved and revealed patterns in nesting-habitat modelling by the cinereous vulture throughout its whole range.
Factors influencing the presence of the cinereous vulture Aegypius monachus at carcasses: food preferences and implications for the management of supplementary feeding sites
TLDR
The results suggest that the number of cinereous vultures that come to feed on the carcasses is related to the quantity of biomass present and to the types of pieces of the provided food.
Foraging range and diet of cinereous vulture "Aegypius monachus" using livestock resources in central Spain
TLDR
Las diferencias de metodo han supuesto probablemente que las areas of campeo y las distancias of vuelo obtenidas resultaran distintas, y se discute la metodologia empleada comparandolo with otros estudios similares que usaron el radioseguimiento como tecnica de localizacion.
Evaluating methods for surveying the Endangered Cuvier's gazelle Gazella cuvieri in arid landscapes
TLDR
Density estimates based on distance sampling proved to be the most useful approach to obtain data on the demographic structure of the population in arid environments, and this could be useful for population monitoring or ecological studies.
Linking sanitary and ecological requirements in the management of avian scavengers: effectiveness of fencing against mammals in supplementary feeding sites
TLDR
The permeability of three types of fences in experimental feeding stations was evaluated and two of the models were the most effective avoiding facultative mammal scavengers from gaining access into the exclosure for over two months and for 7–8 inputs of food.
Reconciling the conservation of endangered species with economically important anthropogenic activities: interactions between cork exploitation and the cinereous vulture in Spain
Limitation of disturbing activities around the breeding areas of protected species is not always possible, if these activities are economically important and have, in addition, positive effects on
The role of ponds as feeding habitat for an umbrella species: best management practices for the black stork Ciconia nigra in Spain
TLDR
Recommendations for pond construction and management that could favour this species in particular and biodiversity in general in the Mediterranean environment are suggested.
Identifying priority conservation areas in a Saharan environment by highlighting the endangered Cuvier’s Gazelle as a flagship species
TLDR
The results show that the distribution of Cuvier’s Gazelle is strongly related to mountainous areas with heterogeneous terrain and remoteness from large human settlements over other ecological factors that had less impact on the species’ presence and distribution, leading to sustainable and ecologically responsible development in the region.
