Article

Much debate has focused on how transitions in life history have influenced the proliferation of some clades. Rodents of the subfamily Sigmodontinae (family Cricetidae) comprise one of the most diverse clades of Neotropical mammals (~400 living species in 86 genera). These rodents occupy a wide range of habitats and lifestyles so that ecological con...

Abstract We present the most comprehensive study to date of species groups in Ctenomys (tuco-tucos), a species-rich genus of Neotropical rodents. To explore phylogenetic relationships among 38 species and 12 undescribed forms we sequenced the complete mitochondrial cytochrome-b genes of 34 specimens and incorporated 50 previously published sequence...
Preprint
Background: The microbial community composition of urban environments is primarily determined by human activity. The use of metagenomics to explore how microbial communities are shaped in a city provides a novel input that can improve decisions on public health measures, architectural design, and urban resilience. Of note, the sewage system in a ci...
Article
Sigmodontine rodents (Cricetidae, Sigmodontinae) represent the second largest muroid subfamily and the most species-rich group of New World mammals, encompassing above 410 living species and ca. 87 genera. Even with advances on the clarification of sigmodontine phylogenetic relationships that have been made recently, the phylogenetic relationships...

Environmental shifts are projected to lead to expansions, contractions and shifts in the geographic range of species in response to climate change. Most distribution forecasting methods assume that species respond to the environment as an undifferentiated entity along their entire distribution. However, environmental heterogeneity along a species’...

The glassfrog Centrolene buckleyi has been recognized as a species complex. Herein, using coalescence-based species delimitation methods, we evaluate the specific diversity within this taxon. Four coalescence approaches (generalized mixed Yule coalescents, Bayesian general mixed Yule-coalescent, Poisson tree processes, and Bayesian Poisson tree pro...
Article
The huge diversity of non- Saccharomyces yeasts in grapes is dominated by the apiculate genus Hanseniaspora . Two native strains of Hanseniaspora vineae applied to winemaking because of their high oenological potential in aroma and fermentation performance were selected to obtain high-quality genomes. Here, we present a phylogenetic analysis and th...
Thesis
Biodiversity is greatly affected by human disturbances affecting ecosystems around the world, of which habitat loss is the mayor of the threats. In recent years, the Gran Chaco has been subject to the highest rates of deforestation worldwide, in the West region of Paraguay is the regional leader in rates of deforestation, mainly for livestock expan...
Article

Background Functional and phylogenetic diversity are increasingly used to infer the important community assembly processes that have structured local communities, which is one of the most fundamental issues in ecology. However, there are critical assumptions and pitfalls associated with these analyses, which can create ambiguity in interpreting re...
Conference Paper
Background/Question/Methods Although ecologists have extensively documented how communities change along environmental gradients, understanding the ecological processes that create those patterns has been more elusive. Recent initiatives to move beyond taxonomic based assessments and incorporate functional trait and phylogenetic information into...
Conference Paper
Background/Question/Methods What factors drive the observed changes in the number of coexisting species across different spatial and temporal scales? This is a fundamental, albeit vexing, question in ecology. Most answers to this question emphasize the role of abiotic factors (e.g., area, temperature, energy) as drivers of diversity patterns. How...

Subterranean tuco-tucos of the genus Ctenomys are caviomorph rodents comprising a complex of over 50 nominal species found in the southern half of South America. The validity of several nominal forms awaits a proper assessment. The population of Ctenomys from Ñacuñán Biosphere Reserve (Mendoza, Argentina) has been classically considered to represen...
