Riqueza, abundancia y fenología de los coleópteros epiedáficos de la laurisilva de Anaga
In this study it is proposed to know the phenological patterns of the epiedaphic coleoptera from the Anaga laurest forest. Likewise, it is proposed to know if there are differences in the speciesExpand
Relationships between helminth communities and diet in Canarian lizards: the evidence from Gallotia atlantica (Squamata: Lacertidae)
Analysis of diet and helminth fauna in Gallotia atlantica, the smallest species of this genus endemic to Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, confirmed previous claims of relationships between these ecological traits in this genus. Expand
The origin of bird pollination in Macaronesian Lotus (Loteae, Leguminosae).
The data compellingly support the hypothesis that the Macaronesian Lotus species with a bird pollinated syndrome are recently derived from entomophilous ancestors, and suggest that the evolution of the bird pollination syndrome was likely triggered by the availability of new niches in La Palma and Tenerife as a result of recent volcanic activity.

Abstract Studies that assess the ecological fidelity—preservation of the original community—of terrestrial shell accumulations are uncommon but essential to infer accurate changes in past ecosystems.Expand
Actual and potential natural vegetation on the Canary Islands and its conservation status
The main vegetation units of the Canary Islands are briefly described and their current surface area established. The area of potential natural vegetation remnants is compared with the supposedExpand
Using taxonomic and phylogenetic evenness to compare diversification in two Island Floras
This study compares the phylogenetic structure in the Canary Islands and Hawaii by means of the distributions of the species number for plant families and lineages across archipelagos using the Gini coefficient and proposes a combination of two habitat properties, high receptivity and low stability, to explain these results.

Colonization and diversification of the spider genus Pholcus Walckenaer, 1805 (Araneae, Pholcidae) in the Macaronesian archipelagos: evidence for long-term occupancy yet rapid recent speciation.
Copulatory characters among Macaronesian Pholcus are confined to structures involved in copulation, and coupled with the extremely high diversification rate, the highest recorded for spiders, these copulatory characters suggest that sexual selection has played a key role in the local diversification ofPholcus in Macaronsia.

Multiple colonizations, in situ speciation, and volcanism-associated stepping-stone dispersals shaped the phylogeography of the Macaronesian red fescues (Festuca L., Gramineae).
The strong allelic structure detected among the Canarian, Madeiran, and Azorean endemics and the significant standardized residual values obtained from structured Bayesian analysis for pairwise related origin hypotheses strongly supported the existence of three independent continental-oceanic colonization events.

Genome size variation from a phylogenetic perspective in the genus Cheirolophus Cass. (Asteraceae): biogeographic implications
DNA amount is significantly lower in the insular species than in the continental ones, and a connection appears between the evolution of the genus Cheirolophus (colonization of islands) and the loss of DNA, probably due to the selection pressure existing on the oceanic islands. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic evidence for the geographic origin and classification of Canary Island Lotus (Fabaceae: Loteae).
A phylogeographic assessment of colonization and diversification patterns suggests that geographic isolation via interisland colonization of ecologically similar habitats is the primary mode of species diversification in Canary Island Lotus. Expand
