Blood chemistry and haematocrit of the black vulture (Aegypius monachus).
There were differences in haematocrit and in the concentrations of glucose, uric acid, total proteins, alkaline phosphatases, phosphorus and aspartate aminotransferase between nestlings and young in their first year and adults. Expand
Identifying new buffer areas for conserving waterbirds in the Mediterranean basin: the importance of the rice fields in Extremadura, Spain
The impact of wetland loss on migratory waterbirds can be mitigated by the presence of anthropogenic habitats such as rice fields. In the Mediterranean basin, wetlands have been drained and alteredExpand
Spatial variation in anthropic and natural factors regulating the breeding success of the cinereous vulture (Aegypius monachus) in the SW Iberian Peninsula
The management of the cinereous vulture (Aegypius monachus) populations, the largest bird of the Western Palaearctic and considered an umbrella species, requires the understanding of the factorsExpand
Patterns of structural complexity and human disturbance of riparian vegetation in agricultural landscapes of a Mediterranean area
Abstract Riparian corridors are valuable high diversity habitats in Mediterranean-type environments and mainly in agricultural landscapes. Following a ‘vegetation complexes’ approach along fluvialExpand
Diet Plasticity of Cinereous Vulture Aegypius monachus in Different Colonies in the Extremadura (SW Spain)
The current feeding habits of the Cinereous Vulture Aegypius monachus remain largely unknown since most studies were carried out in the 1970s. To update the information, we studied the diet of theExpand
Emotions in prospective secondary teachers when teaching science content, distinguishing by gender
Background: Until recently, the affective components of education had long been undervalued. Today, one finds ever more studies on cognitive and affective interrelationships that are lending supportExpand
Status and trends of Gull-billed Tern Gelochelidon nilotica in Europe and Africa
Gull-billed Tern Gelochelidon nilotica is classed as Endangered in Europe (Tucker and Heath 1994, Hagemeijer and Blair, 1997), but there have been no detailed studies of the trends in the differentExpand
Relationship between Self-Efficacy Beliefs and Emotions of Future Teachers of Physics in Secondary Education.
The self-efficacy beliefs of prospective teachers of secondary education in their physics classes are analysed, observing their perceived ability to successfully teach their students and to relate toExpand
International importance of Extremadura, Spain, for overwintering migratory dabbling ducks: a role for reservoirs
Many migratory waterbird populations are in decline and loss of natural wetlands is one of the main causes.However, some speciesmay respondpositively to artificial wetland recreation. In ExtremaduraExpand
Improving the self-regulation in prospective science teachers: the case of the calculus of the period of a simple pendulum
The results showed how, as they go developing the stages of scientific methods, prospective teachers improve their reasoning and capability, and change negative emotions into positive ones, ending with being able to solve the problem on their own. Expand
