A coupled phylogeographical and species distribution modelling approach recovers the demographical history of a Neotropical seasonally dry forest tree species
We investigated here the demographical history of Tabebuia impetiginosa (Bignoniaceae) to understand the dynamics of the disjunct geographical distribution of South American seasonally dry forestsExpand

Ice age climate, evolutionary constraints and diversity patterns of European dung beetles.
Current climate and Pleistocene climatic changes are both known to be associated with geographical patterns of diversity. We assess their associations with the European Scarabaeinae dung beetles, aExpand

Challenging Wallacean and Linnean shortfalls: knowledge gradients and conservation planning in a biodiversity hotspot
Knowledge about biodiversity remains inadequate because most species living on Earth were still not formally described (the Linnean shortfall) and because geographical distributions of most speciesExpand

Increased tolerance to humans among disturbed wildlife
Human disturbance drives the decline of many species, both directly and indirectly. Nonetheless, some species do particularly well around humans. One mechanism that may explain coexistence is theExpand

Coefficient shifts in geographical ecology: an empirical evaluation of spatial and non-spatial regression
A major focus of geographical ecology and macroecology is to understand the causes of spatially structured ecological patterns. However, achieving this understanding can be complicated when usingExpand

Nonstationary effects of productivity, seasonality, and historical climate changes on global amphibian diversity
Attempts to explain the origin of species diversity gradients often lack generality across geographic regions or taxa. One possible reason for this is that species respond differently to the sameExpand

Challenges and perspectives for species distribution modelling in the neotropics
The workshop ‘Species distribution models: applications, challenges and perspectives’ held at Belo Horizonte (Brazil), 29–30 August 2011, aimed to review the state-of-the-art in species distributionExpand

Null models and spatial patterns of species richness in South American birds of prey
In this paper, we used geostatistical approaches to describe bi-dimensional spatial patterns in species richness of South American birds of prey (Falconiformes and Strigiformes). They indicatedExpand

Community phylogenetics at the biogeographical scale: cold tolerance, niche conservatism and the structure of North American forests
AimThe fossil record has led to a historical explanation for forest diversity gradients within the cool parts of the Northern Hemisphere, founded on a limited ability of woody angiosperm clades toExpand
