Foraging guild structure and niche characteristics of waterbirds in an epicontinental lake in Mexico
BackgroundIt was suggested that ecological patterns can be used to infer the nature of ecological processes (i.e., competition) that structure communities. Analysis of patterns of resourceExpand

A Potential Role of Shrimp Farms for the Conservation of Nearctic Shorebird Populations
Shrimp aquaculture farms have greatly expanded at tropical areas worldwide, especially during the past three decades. One of the main core areas of this expansion was the northwestern coast ofExpand

Effects of intertidal habitat availability on the use of anthropogenic habitats as foraging grounds by shorebirds: a case study on semi-intensive shrimp farms
Loss of wetlands may restrict foraging opportunities for many species of migratory shorebirds that depend on such habitats during the non-breeding periods. In addition, tidal cycles, both daily (highExpand

Aves acuáticas de la laguna de Acuitlapilco, Tlaxcala, México.
We studied waterbird abundance and seasonal distribution in the Acuitlapilco lake at Tlaxcala, Mexico. We recorded a total of 36 waterbird species with a total cumulative abundance of 48,794Expand

Effects of tidal cycles on shorebird distribution and foraging behaviour in a coastal tropical wetland: Insights for carrying capacity assessment
Abstract Wetland loss has driven negative effects on biodiversity by a reduction in potential available habitats, directly impacting wetland-dependent species such as migratory shorebirds. At coastalExpand

Shorebird predation on benthic invertebrates after shrimp-pond harvesting: Implications for semi-intensive aquaculture management.
How to improve habitat quality for wildlife is of particular importance in areas dedicated to food production, due to increasing pressures of global demands associated to human population growth.Expand
