Microhabitat use by small mammals in central Chile
Observations de terrain et experiences de laboratoire concernant le choix des microhabitats par 4 rongeurs et 1 marsupial des formations arbustives toujours vertes du Chili central.Les aires aExpand
Translocations and human-carnivore conflicts: problem solving or problem creating?
TLDR
Translocation is a non-lethal practice used to manage carnivore-livestock conflicts but has been questioned due to its low success rate and high cost, and is costly and less effective than other alternatives such as compensation with best herding practices. Expand
European rabbits versus native rodents in Central Chile: effects on shrub seedlings
TLDR
It was found that degus cause important seedling mortality only within a 5 m-radius centered at the border of their retreats, and it is speculated that rabbits may be halting the secondary succession process, shifting the matorral composition toward less palatable shrub species, and/or broadening the spacing between shrub clumps.

Small mammals of Maulino forest remnants, a vanishing ecosystem of south-central Chile
The Maulino forest, located at the coastal range of south central Chile, has been severely disrupted by intense human activities. Currently, landscape is dominated by large extensions of plantationsExpand
Home range assessment: a comparison of five methods
The similarity of five methods for estimating trap-revealed home range size was empirically tested using data from captures of small mammals in central Chile. Distance between successive recaptures,Expand
DESCRIPTION OF A NEW EUPSOPHUS SPECIES (AMPHIBIA, LEPTODACTYLIDAE) FROM THE REMNANTS OF MAULINO FOREST, CENTRAL CHILE
TLDR
The description of a new species of Eupsophus, from Los Queules National Reserve, adds a new endemic taxon to the fauna oftelmatobines of Chile, and extends the geographical distribution of the genus approximately 200 km to the north. Expand
Assessing independence of animal movements : spatio-temporal variability in Oryzomys longicaudatus
TLDR
The assumption that successive recaptures are independent events is tested, and that a given trapping protocol would yield similar results regardless of place and time from a given population is tested. Expand
On the assessment of trapping success
TLDR
Three different methods for calculating trapping success are empirically validated and it is shown that different conclusions could be drawn about frequency of captures depending upon the method employed. Expand
