Resource partitioning and interspecific competition in snakes: the search for general geographical and guild patterns
The role of interspecific competition as a key factor in the ecology of natural communities where species exploit limited resources is well established, and the study of competition dynamics in snakeExpand

Conflict between insect conservation and public safety: the case study of a saproxylic beetle (Osmoderma eremita) in urban parks
Urban parks can harbour small populations of saproxylic insects of high conservation concern, such as Osmoderma eremita and other rare beetles. These areas often host old trees which have become veryExpand

Broad geographic, taxonomic and ecological patterns of interpopulation variation in the dietary habits of snakes
Abstract. Because of their unique morphological and ecological characteristics (i.e. being obligate carnivorous, solitary, and ingesting their prey whole), snakes are expected to show unusual dietaryExpand

Reproductive output, costs of reproduction, and ecology of the smooth snake, Coronella austriaca, in the eastern Italian Alps
A 5-year mark-recapture study of smooth snakes (Coronella austriaca) in the Carnic Alps (1100 m above sea level) of north-eastern Italy provided extensive information on the biology and life-historyExpand

  • Biology
  • Journal of Tropical Ecology
  • 27 July 2006
The presence and density of two sympatric, large-sized vipers (the Gaboon viper, Bitis gabonica and the nose-horned viper, Bitis nasicornis) were studied along several transects, during both dry andExpand
