Bushes protect tortoises from lethal overheating in arid areas of Morocco
SUMMARY Arid Mediterranean regions that shelter unique biodiversity are threatened by increasing anthropogenic pressures, such as urbanization, overgrazing and climate change. In Morocco, one of theExpand

Dispersal syndromes and the use of life-histories to predict dispersal
Due to its impact on local adaptation, population functioning or range shifts, dispersal is considered a central process for population persistence and species evolution. However, measuring dispersalExpand

A database of life-history traits of European amphibians
Abstract In the current context of climate change and landscape fragmentation, efficient conservation strategies require the explicit consideration of life history traits. This is particularly trueExpand

How far can a tortoise walk in open habitat before overheating? Implications for conservation
a b s t r a c t Terrestrial chelonians are threatened worldwide by habitat destruction and illegal harvesting. Tortoises are slow moving animals susceptible to dehydration and overheating duringExpand

Life-history trait database of European reptile species
Life-history data are essential for providing answers to a wide range of questions in evolution, ecology, and conservation biology. While life history data for many species, especially plants, areExpand

Climate and habitat interact to shape the thermal reaction norms of breeding phenology across lizard populations.
Substantial plastic variation in phenology in response to environmental heterogeneity through time in the same population has been uncovered in many species. However, our understanding of differencesExpand

Multicriterion trade‐offs and synergies for spatial conservation planning
Summary 1.Nature conservation policies need to deliver on multiple criteria, including genetic diversity, population viability and species richness as well as ecosystem services. The challenge ofExpand

The roles of plasticity versus dominance in maintaining polymorphism in mating strategies
Although natural selection is expected to reduce variability, polymorphism is common in nature even under strong selective regimes. Discrete polymorphisms in mating strategies are widespread andExpand

MetaConnect, a new platform for population viability modelling to assist decision makers in conservation and urban planning
In a context of global change, scientists and policy-makers require tools to address the issue of biodiversity loss. Expand
Patterns of gene flow across multiple anthropogenic infrastructures: Insights from a multi-species approach
Large-scale Transportation Infrastructures (LTIs) are among the main determinants of landscape fragmentation, with strong impacts on animal dispersal movements and metapopulation functioning.Expand
