Geographical potential of Argentine ants (Linepithema humile Mayr) in the face of global climate change
Determining the spread and potential geographical distribution of invasive species is integral to making invasion biology a predictive science. We assembled a dataset of over 1000 occurrences of theExpand

Effects of the Argentine ant Linepithema humile on seed dispersal and seedling emergence of Rhamnus alaternus
We studied influence of the Argentine ant's Linepithema humile occurrence on seed dispersal of Rhamnus alaternus (Rhamnaceae). Rhamnus alaternus is a fleshy fruit plant dispersed primarily by birds;Expand

Wildfires and the expansion of threatened farmland birds: the ortolan bunting Emberiza hortulana in Mediterranean landscapes
Summary 1. It has been argued that wildfires are one of the major agents involved in landscape transformation in many European regions and their impact is expected to increase in the near future.Expand

Colonization of dynamic Mediterranean landscapes: where do birds come from after fire?
Aim Two main mechanisms may explain post-disturbance species colonization patterns of early successional habitats such as those originated by wildfires. First, post-disturbance colonization is notExpand

Transformation of a Rural Landscape in the Eastern Pyrenees Between 1953 and 2000
Abstract In the mid-20th century, the southern parts of the Madres and Mont Coronat massif (Eastern Pyrenees, France) were characterized by a Mediterranean landscape shaped by human activity.Expand

The effects of grassland management using fire on habitat occupancy and conservation of birds in a mosaic landscape
Prescribed burning is routinely used to improve grazing in Pyrenean rangelands affected by an overall trend of land abandonment. This study considers the environmental variables influencing habitatExpand

Can salvage logging affect seed dispersal by birds into burned forests
The recovery of vegetation in Mediterranean ecosystems after wildfire is mostly a result of direct regeneration, since the same species existing before the fire regenerate on-site by seeding orExpand

Prominent role of invasive species in avian biodiversity loss
The rise of extinction rates associated with human activities has led to a growing interest in identifying extinction-prone taxa and extinction-promoting drivers. Previous work has identified habitatExpand

Building wood debris piles benefits avian seed dispersers in burned and logged Mediterranean pine forests
Salvage logging is a common practice carried out in burned forests worldwide, and intended to mitigate the economic losses caused by wildfires. Logging implies an additional disturbance occurringExpand
