Quantifying the biodiversity value of tropical primary, secondary, and plantation forests
Biodiversity loss from deforestation may be partly offset by the expansion of secondary forests and plantation forestry in the tropics. However, our current knowledge of the value of these habitatsExpand

Global warming and extinctions of endemic species from biodiversity hotspots.
Global warming is a key threat to biodiversity, but few researchers have assessed the magnitude of this threat at the global scale. We used major vegetation types (biomes) as proxies for naturalExpand

Matrix habitat and species richness in tropical forest remnants
The abilities of species to use the matrix of modified habitats surrounding forest fragments may aAect their vulnerability in fragmented landscapes. We used long-term (up to 19-year) studies of fourExpand

Estimated migration rates under scenarios of global climate change
Aim Greenhouse-induced warming and resulting shifts in climatic zones may exceed the migration capabilities of some species. We used fourteen combinations of General Circulation Models (GCMs) andExpand

Edge effects in central Amazonian forest fragments
Current descriptive models of edge effects describe little more than the relationship between perimeter and area. A more realistic model, one that incorporates the additive nature of edge effects, isExpand

Conservation and development alliances with the Kayapó of south-eastern Amazonia, a tropical forest indigenous people
Summary Legally recognized Indian reserves of Brazilian Amazonia span over 100 million ha of largely intact forest and are potentially valuable for biodiversity conservation. An important example isExpand

Natural selection and the communal rearing of pups in African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus)
SummaryThe contributions of adult (>18 months) and yearling (10–18 months) African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus), to raising pups were quantified at eight natal dens, where pups remain for their firstExpand
