Predicted climate-driven bird distribution changes and forecasted conservation conflicts in a neotropical savanna.
Climate-change scenarios project significant temperature changes for most of South America. We studied the potential impacts of predicted climate-driven change on the distribution and conservation ofExpand

Major current and future gaps of Brazilian reserves to protect Neotropical savanna birds
Abstract We tested the prediction that climate-driven changes might alter bird species composition in reserves of the Cerrado region of Brazil. First, we modelled the current distributions and theExpand

Predators of quail eggs, and the evidence of the remains: Implications for nest predation studies
We evaluated the consumption of Japanese Quail (Coturnix coturnix) eggs by captive reptiles, birds, and mammals in order to examine potential bias of nest predation experiments, and to determineExpand
