One-dimensional analyses of Rapoport's rule reviewed through meta-analysis
Aim To analyse quantitatively the extent to which several methodological, geographical and taxonomic variables affect the magnitude of the tendency for the latitudinal ranges of species to increase… Expand
Quality of basic data and method to identify shape affect richness-altitude relationships in meta-analysis.
We compiled 109 species richness-altitude (SRA) relationships in arthropods to test the hypothesis that identification of shape and robustness of pattern are contingent on the selection of studies… Expand
Emerging Ecosystems Change the Spatial Distribution of Top Carnivores Even in Poorly Populated Areas
Humans affect biological diversity and species distribution patterns by modifying resource availability and generating novel environments where generalist species benefit and specialist species are… Expand
The effects of ant nests on soil fertility and plant performance: a meta‐analysis
Ants are recognized as one of the major sources of soil disturbance world-wide. However, this view is largely based on isolated studies and qualitative reviews. Here, for the first time, we… Expand
Ants at the edge: a sharp forest-steppe boundary influences the taxonomic and functional organization of ant species assemblages along elevational gradients in northwestern Patagonia (Argentina)
Biogeographic transitions may play a significant role in generating unique biodiversity patterns along different spatial dimensions of the geobiosphere. The extent, however, to which the presence of… Expand
The richness and abundance of epigaeic mountain beetles in north‐western Patagonia, Argentina: assessment of patterns and environmental correlates
Aim Our aims were: (1) to study the shape of the species richness–elevation and abundance–elevation relationships (SRER and AER, respectively) in epigaeic mountain beetles; and (2) to analyse how… Expand
New species and phylogenetic relationships of the spider genus Coptoprepes using morphological and sequence data (Araneae: Anyphaenidae).
We present evidence from the standard cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) barcoding marker and from new collections, showing that the males and females of C. ecotono Werenkraut & Ramírez were… Expand
Invasive non‐native species likely to threaten biodiversity and ecosystems in the Antarctic Peninsula region
Abstract The Antarctic is considered to be a pristine environment relative to other regions of the Earth, but it is increasingly vulnerable to invasions by marine, freshwater and terrestrial… Expand
A meta‐analysis of leaf‐cutting ant nest effects on soil fertility and plant performance
1. Leaf‐cutting ants (LCAs) are considered as one of the most important agents of soil disturbances that affect vegetation patterns, but these assertions are based on isolated studies or anecdotal… Expand
Environmental heterogeneity, not distance, structures montane epigaeic spider assemblages in north-western Patagonia (Argentina)

There is considerable controversy around the patterns and processes that influence spatial variation in taxonomic composition in mountain environments. We analysed elevational variation in the… Expand
