Introduction
I have considerable field experience as well as experience in the design and development of projects on avian comunities in arid and semi-arid ecosistems in the high Andes, and Chaco woodlands. Currently I am Professor of Conservation Biology and Communitie ecology in biology career of the National University of Salta and therefore am in constant contact with advanced students. All my projects are directed by or involving action applied to conservation of biodiversity.

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...

Por su continuidad espacial y su relativa homogeneidad ecológica y biofísica, las ecorregiones son un nivel de organización apropiado para discutir y planificar iniciativas de conservación del ambiente a escala regional y nacional. Las interacciones complejas entre las características ecológicas de las ecorregiones, los cambios socioeconómicos loca...

Tabla A2. Puntaje de cada presión (de 0 a 100, con valores más altos reflejando una mayor incidencia de la misma) en las ecorregiones terrestres de Argentina en base a su jerarquización sobre cuatro dimensiones.
Article
Disparity between the knowledge produced and knowledge required to address complex environmental challenges, such as biodiversity conservation and climate adaptation, continues to grow. Systems thinking under the Open Standards for Conservation framework can help close this gap by facilitating interdisciplinary engagement, advancing conversations o...

We present here the first record of Histiotus velatus I. Geoffroy St.-Hilaire, 1824 for the province of Salta, Argentina. Until now, in Argentina, this species was only known from Jujuy, Corrientes, and Misiones provinces. Our record adds a fourth province to the distribution of this species in the country and the second record for the Northwestern...

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...

RESUMEN. La vizcacha (Lagostomus maximus) (RODENTIA: CHINCHILLIDAE) es un roedor de hábitos nocturnos, que habita en colonias de varios individuos. Se considera que a principios del siglo XX sus poblaciones se habrían extinguido de la región pampeana del sur de Santa Fe. En un relevamiento reciente de la mastofauna del área conocida como 'Pampa de...
Article
The Andean Flamingo (Phoenicoparrus andinus), one of three flamingo species in southern South America makes complementary and alternative use of high Andean wetlands in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru, and lowland wetlands in Argentina over its life cycle. Previous studies have focused on its behavior in Andean sites, but there are no such studi...

We report the first leucistic guanaco (Lama guanicoe) in the Andes Mountains of northwestern Argentina. In January 2011, an atypical guanaco was sighted near Socompa Volcano. Reportamos el primer guanaco blanco (Lama guanicoe) en la cordillera de los Andes del noroeste de Argentina. En enero de 2011, observamos un guanaco atípico cerca del volcán S...

James's Flamingos (Phoenicoparrus jamesi), also known as Puna Flamingos, are distributed primarily in the Andean wetlands of southern South America during the breeding season, and dispersed through the lowland wetlands in Argentina during the non-breeding season. However, the main sites where they concentrate during the non-breeding season still re...

The fourth International Simultaneous Census (ISC) of flamingos in South America, conducted in 2010, included a comprehensive survey of 259 wetlands throughout the distribution range of both of the high Andes species, the Andean Phoenicoparrus andinus and Puna Flamingo P. jamesi, in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru. At each wetland we recorded to...

We sampled birds with mist nets and point counts in old-growth and second-growth Chaco forest in Argentina to compare the contribution of each method to estimates of species abundance and diversity. We captured 53 species with mist nets (13 exclusively), and detected 75 species on point counts (43 exclusively). Species richness estimated by rarefac...

Of the world's five flamingo species, the rarest and least known are the Puna Flamingo (Phoenicoparrus jamesi) and the Andean Flamingo (P. andinus). These two species coexist with the more common Chilean Flamingo (Phoenicopterus chilensis) throughout much of their range. We conducted four simultaneous surveys from 1997 to 2001 (two in summer and tw...

De las cinco especies de flamencos en el mundo, las más raras y menos conocidas son el Phoenicoparrus jamesi y el P. andinus, las cuales coexisten con el Phoenicopterus chilensis en gran parte de su distribución. Nosotros llevamos a cabo cuatro relevamientos simultáneos desde 1997 al 2001 (dos en verano y dos en invierno), para estimar la distribuc...
Article
Of the world’s six flamingo species, the rarest and least known are the James’ Flamingo and the Andean Flamingo. These species inhabit only the lakes in the puna and high Andes of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru. To update information on global distribution and abundance of both species, we conducted a fifth simultaneous census during summer 200...

We measured waterbird richness and abundance, and characterized wetland features (altitude, size, and presence of submergent vegetation) of 50 altiplano wetlands, during summer and winter, 1998. We estimated 36,700 individuals of 24 avian species during the summer census. James' Flamingo (Phoenicoparrus jamesi) and Andean Flamingo (P. andinus) were...

Three flamingo species occur in the High Andes wetlands of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, and Peru: James (Phoenicoparrus jamesi), Andean (P. andinus), and Chilean, (Phoenicopterus chilensis). During summer, the Vilama Lakes concentrate 30% of the James and Andean Flamingo populations of Argentina. These 9 lakes differ in size, depth, water composition...

La Puna, planicie de altura de los Andes Centrales, se extiende en parte de Perú, Bolivia, Chile y Argentina, entre los 3500 y 4500 metros sobre el nivel del mar. En ella, numerosas cuencas endorreicas forman lagos y salares de diverso tamaño, los cuales constituyen parches de hábitats acuáticos en una matriz desértica. Los caudales de los ríos que...

Our goals are: 1. To identify high Andes Flamingos use a specific set of wetlands throughout the year, 2) to describe their movement patterns are unpredictable and may vary by age and year, and 3) to know about their habitat, dietary and climatic requirements.
