The importance of correcting for sampling bias in MaxEnt species distribution models
TLDR
It is concluded that a substantial improvement in the quality of model predictions can be achieved if uneven sampling effort is taken into account, thereby improving the efficacy of species conservation planning.
Fragmented landscapes, road mortality and patch connectivity: modelling influences on the dispersal of Eurasian lynx
Summary 1. Although many reintroduction schemes for the Eurasian lynx Lynx lynx in Germany have been discussed, the implications of connectivity between suitable patches have not been assessed. 2. We
Ecosystem oceanography for global change in fisheries.
The Rauischholzhausen Agenda for Road Ecology
Despite the documented negative effects of roads on wildlife, ecological research on road effects has had comparatively little influence on road planning decisions. We argue that road research would
Diseases and Causes of Death in European Bats: Dynamics in Disease Susceptibility and Infection Rates
TLDR
The clear seasonal and individual variations in disease prevalence and infection rates indicate that maternity colonies are more susceptible to infectious agents, underlining the possible important role of host physiology, immunity and roosting behavior as risk factors for infection of bats.
Assessing habitat suitability for tiger in the fragmented Terai Arc Landscape of India and Nepal
Tiger Panthera tigris populations have declined dramatically in the Terai Arc Landscape (TAL; India and Nepal), and remaining populations are highly fragmented and endangered. As part of a research
Human–wildlife coexistence in a changing world
TLDR
The synthesis revealed that inter- and transdisciplinary approaches and multilevel governance approaches can help stakeholders and institutions implement sustainable management strategies that promote human-wildlife coexistence.
Adaptive responses of animals to climate change are most likely insufficient
TLDR
A meta-analysis focussing on birds suggests that global warming has not systematically affected morphological traits, but has advanced phenological traits and indicates that the evolutionary load imposed by incomplete adaptive responses to ongoing climate change may already be threatening the persistence of species.
