How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I am biologist. MSc Conservation Biology and Primatology. I want to specialize in spatial ecology and I am interested in the areas of ecology, biogeography , ethology, distribution modelling and conservation. I am coordinating advanced courses in Sciences at Darwin Eventur (http://www.darwineventur.com/).

Understanding the geographic distributions of primates is necessary to ensure effective conservation strategies. Nonetheless, many gaps persist in information regarding the range limits of platyrrhines. Leontocebus lagonotus is no exception; it is one of the least studied primates in Ecuador and its geographic limits are poorly known. We obtained 2...
Habituation is used in most field research with primates to minimize observer effects on their behavior. Despite its importance, there is little published on the methods used to habituate different taxa of primates or how these methods vary in different habitat types. We assessed changes in behavior and space use of two groups of Leontocebus lagono...
Leontocebus lagonotus is a Neotropical primate of the Callitrichidae family that is distributed in Ecuador and Peru being one of the less studied species of Neotropical primates. Its geographic limits are unknown, as well as the effects that are causing the rapid change in land uses along with climate change on its populations. The objectives of ou...
Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) have a spatial cognition with which they can use different strategies to decrease effort and increase efficiency in complex tasks. Moreover, they do a very selective use of available space in captivity. We evaluated the use of space of chimpanzees at a Primate Rescue Centre through Geographic Information Systems (GIS)....
The main objective is to establish management guidelines based on the historical analysis of land use changes and their possible evolution trends to guarantee the persistence of the olive grove of the Protected Denomination of Origin of Sierra Mágina. The specific objectives are: (1) to analyze the transformation of an agricultural landscape in th...
The main objective of the study is to know the potential distribution of Leontocebus lagonotus in the present time and its tendency towards the future in response to climate change.
The main goal of this study is to evaluate the use of space of chimpanzees at Mona Foundation through the Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The specific objectives are (1) to evaluate the use of structures of outer enclosure, (2) to evaluate the use of space around zones closer to the fence, (3) To evaluate the areas used for the social behaviour of grooming and (4) to evaluate the fence zone that divides the two groups. We predicted that (1) they will more frequently use towers and platforms within enclosure, (2) they will more frequently use areas close to fence in exploratory behaviours, (3) they will use a specific zone for grooming, (4) they will more frequently use the fence zone that divides the two groups into social behaviours between groups.
