The main factors affecting specific road casualty rates are related to life-history traits, road features, and landscape variables. After road inauguration, roadkill rate and spatial and temporal patterns can change substantially due to changes in traffic intensity, avoidance behaviour or local population decline. Despite the Canary Islands constit...
Petrels are particularly sensitive to predation by introduced species. Many populations have reduced their breeding ranges, currently mainly occupying predator-free sites. Breeding range reduction leads to interspecific competition for nesting sites, which can be detrimental to petrels. Here, we evaluate how the presence of introduced mammals (cats...
Due to their life-history traits, the petrels are particularly sensitive to predation by introduced species. Therefore, many populations have constricted their original breeding distribution range, currently only occupying predator-free sites. In this scenario, interspecific competition for nesting sites can be detrimental for the petrel’ conservat...
We document the first two records of Sora Porzana carolina for the Canary Islands, in Tenerife, in December 2015 and October 2019. There are at least 43 records of this rare, occasional species for the Western Palearctic, including nine in Macaronesia (Azores, Madeira and Canary Islands) and one in North Africa (Morocco).In Macaronesia, all observa...
