Though biodiversity can have an effect on biological control of pests, there is debate about whether a single species or a more complex assemblage of natural enemies will exert better control of the pest population. We explore the relationship between numbers of different taxa of natural enemies in an olive grove to identify cases of significant positive(More)
We aim at proposing novel stable finite element methods for the mixed Darcy equation with heterogeneous coefficients within a space splitting framework. We start from the primal hybrid formulation of the elliptic model for the pressure. Localization of this infinite-dimensional problem leads to element-level boundary value problems which embed multiscale(More)
Knowledge of feeding habits of small rodents is necessary for understanding food webs, trophic structure, and plant–animal interactions in Neotropical forests. Despite several studies that have investigated community structure and feeding behavior of rodents, large gaps remain in our understanding of their guild occupancy. Our objective was to investigate(More)
