The Status of the World's Land and Marine Mammals: Diversity, Threat, and Knowledge
TLDR
A comprehensive assessment of the conservation status and distribution of the world's mammals is presented, compiled by 1700+ experts, to suggest common mechanisms driving diversity and endemism across systems. Expand
The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates
TLDR
Though the threat of extinction is increasing, overall declines would have been worse in the absence of conservation, and current conservation efforts remain insufficient to offset the main drivers of biodiversity loss in these groups. Expand
The social structure and ecology of elephant-shrews
TLDR
Formica rufa shows optical recognition of objects and localities and always prefers the more closed figure, independent of the nature of the articulation, as well as two independent variables for the form vision of insects. Expand
Why is there discordant diversity in sengi (Mammalia: Afrotheria: Macroscelidea) taxonomy and ecology?
TLDR
The seventeen species of sengis or elephant-shrews form a well-defined clade of mammals endemic to Africa that occupy the extremes of terrestrial habitats, from coastal deserts to montane forests, resulting in low taxonomic diversity. Expand
Distribution and habitat use by manatees (Trichechus manatus manatus) in Belize and Chetumal Bay, Mexico
The nearshore coastal areas of Belize and of Chetumal Bay, Mexico, support one of the largest populations of manatees (Trichechus manatus manatus) in the Caribbean. In order to further document theExpand
AN EPIZOOTIC OF FLORIDA MANATEES ASSOCIATED WITH A DINOFLAGELLATE BLOOM
TLDR
Ecological conditions that magnified the extent of the epizootic included an early dispersal of manatees into the area from a nearby winter aggregation site and unusually high salinities that facilitated the inshore spread of the red tide bloom. Expand
The San Joaquin Desert of California: Ecologically Misunderstood and Overlooked
ABSTRACT: The vegetation community of the San Joaquin Valley of California has been formally classified as a perennial grassland based largely on assumptions of past climax state. However, historicalExpand
