Regression commonality analyses on hierarchical genetic distances

By Jerome G. Prunier

Landscape genetics is emerging as an important way of supporting decision-making in landscape management, in response to the deterioration of matrix permeability due to habitat loss and fragmentation. In line with unremitting methodological...

Tropical frugivorous birds are both more specialized and generalized than temperate frugivorous birds

Frugivorous bird assemblages at high latitudes consist mainly of bird species with an omnivorous diet containing both fruits and a wide range of other food types. This is here exemplified with the North American Turdus migratorius eating both earthworms and fruits...
