Understanding global patterns of mammalian functional and phylogenetic diversity
Documenting and exploring the patterns of diversity of life on Earth has always been a central theme in biology. Species richness despite being the most commonly used measure of diversity inExpand

How similar are national red lists and the IUCN Red List
Abstract For more than four decades the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has been assessing the global threat status for species and publishing the results in theExpand

Experimental and numerical studies of convection in a rapidly rotating spherical shell
Thermal convection in a rapidly rotating spherical shell is investigated experimentally and numerically. The experiments are performed in water (Prandtl number P = 7) and in gallium (P = 0.025), atExpand

Unraveling the conservation status of Data Deficient species
Many species are classified as Data Deficient, because there is a knowledge gap about distribution range and population size and trends. This situation may be a problem in conservation, because theExpand

Estimating Minimum Area of Suitable Habitat and Viable Population Size for the Northern Muriqui (Brachyteles hypoxanthus)
A population viability analysis (PVA) using the computer package VORTEX was conducted to assess the minimum viable population (MVP) of the Atlantic Forest endemic primate Brachyteles hypoxanthus. TheExpand

The jaguar's patches: Viability of jaguar populations in fragmented landscapes
Abstract Habitat loss and fragmentation have serious consequences for long-term population persistence, thus we investigated the effects of these processes on jaguars ( Panthera onca ) across theExpand

What we (don't) know about the effects of habitat loss and fragmentation on felids
Felid species have intrinsic ecological traits that make them particularly susceptible to the threats of habitat loss and fragmentation. We collate current knowledge of the effects of habitat lossExpand

An overview of mammalian conservation at Poço das Antas Biological Reserve, southeastern Brazil
Summary Atlantic Forest mammals are still poorly known and very few localities have been properly surveyed and/or studied. Protected reserves are of paramount importance for the conservation ofExpand

Protected areas effectiveness in maintaining viable giant anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla) populations in an agricultural frontier
Abstract The protected areas are essential for the conservation of native biota. However, only the protected area establishment does not guarantee the persistence of threatened species. Here, weExpand

How does the inclusion of Data Deficient species change conservation priorities for amphibians in the Atlantic Forest?
Current knowledge is not sufficient to define extinction risk of Data Deficient (DD) species, and conservation planners may keep them out of conservation assessments and planning. However, systematicExpand
