Brazilian free-tailed bats as insect pest regulators in transgenic and conventional cotton crops.
TLDR
A dynamic model to predict regional-scale ecological functions in agricultural food webs is developed by using the indicators of insect pest herbivory measured by cotton boll damage and insect emigration from cotton to find that the agronomics of both Bt and conventional cotton production is more profitable when large numbers of insectivorous bats are present.
Temporal niche overlap of a riparian forest bat assemblage in subtropical Mexico
Use of time as mediator of ecological interactions is important but has been poorly studied and has received less attention than other niche axes. We characterized and compared patterns of activity,
Additional new species of the genus Obolopteryx Cohn et al. 2014 (Ensifera: Tettigoniidae) from Northeastern Mexico.
TLDR
Five new species of Phaneropterinae from Northeastern Mexico are described, including Obolopteryx eurycerca n.
A new species of the genus Obolopteryx Cohn et al. 2014 and a conspecific gynandromorph (Ensifera: Tettigoniidae: Phaneropterinae).
Obolopteryx truncoangulata n. sp., Barrientos-Lozano & Rocha-Sánchez, and a field collected conspecific gynandromorph are described, both from the northern Mexico's Highland. O. truncoangulata n.
Habitat use and microhabitat selection of two lizard species with different niche requirements in a resource availability gradient
TLDR
Evaluated habitat use and microhabitat selection of two lizard species with different niche requirements in a resource availability gradient caused by disturbance in El Cielo Biosphere Reserve, Mexico showed that Sceloporus variabilis, a species that uses a wide range of resources, can select differentmicrohabitats along the gradient.
Brazilian free-tailed bats (Tadarida brasiliensis) as insect pest regulators in transgenic and conventional cotton crops
TLDR
A dynamic model to predict regional-scale ecological functions in agricultural food webs is developed by using the indicators of insect pest herbivory measured by cotton boll damage and insect emigration from cotton to find that the agronomics of both Bt and conventional cotton production is more profitable when large numbers of insectivorous bats are present.
Richness, Community Structure, and Diurnal Activity of Species of Ants along a Disturbance Gradient at El Cielo Biosphere Reserve, Tamaulipas, Mexico
TLDR
It is suggested that environmental variability along a disturbance gradient determines the establishment of the niche and the diurnal activity profile of each species throughout the day and between days.
