Article
Extensive livestock ranching is one of the main drivers of habitat degradation in terrestrial communities in the dry Chaco forest (Argentina). Grazing intensity could differentially affect native mammals and their interactions, which could impact both, native mammal communities and livestock production systems. Here, we determined how the activity...
Article
Knowing what native trees can recruit on degraded areas allows selecting the best species to restore these sites. However, as this information is not often available, experimentation is required before large-scale planting. This study used ex situ experiments to make these decisions on recruitment. Competition with r-strategist plants, excessive so...

La ganadería extensiva en bosques como el Chaco seco, es un importante uso de la tierra prac-ticado por comunidades locales. Esta actividad ha sido estudiada en décadas pasadas y recien-temente, siendo necesario resumir lo conocido hasta la fecha. Aquí, sintetizamos nuestra evi-dencia sobre la relación ganadería-regeneración y experiencias de resta...

El efecto del pastoreo por ganado en las comunidades vegetales es un tópico que ha sido estudiado en diversos ecosistemas del mundo. El bosque seco del Gran Chaco (comúnmente llamado bosque chaqueño) es el segundo bosque más importante de Sudamérica después del Amazonas y uno de los puntos críticos de conservación a escala continental, pero se encu...
Article
Livestock grazing can be a problem for forest conservation because it can generate heterogeneous and unpredictable changes in plant communities. Understanding these changes is important for generating management strategies that are compatible with long-term conservation of threatened forests. Livestock exclusion is a useful experimental approach us...

Throughout its range in Latin America, the jaguar Panthera onca is threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation, and by conflict as a result of coexistence with people. This Near Threatened species is a top predator, and is often illegally hunted. Understanding people's attitudes and perceptions and the factors that could influence them is crucial...

In semiarid regions, livestock is concentrated around water sources generating a piosphere pattern (gradients of woody vegetation degradation with increasing proximity to water). Close to the water source, livestock may affect the composition, structure and regeneration strategies of woody vegetation. We used the proximity from a water source as a...

In arid environments, direct facilitation (microhabitat amelioration) and indirect facilitation (“associational resistance” via protection from herbivory) among plants of different species may act simultaneously. Little is known about their relative effects. One way to disentangle the effects is by evaluating spatial associations. We examined the r...
