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
Seabirds nesting on islands are threatened by invasive rodents, such as mice and rats, which may attack eggs, chicks and even adults. The low feasibility of rat eradications on many islands makes the development of alternate control plans necessary. We used a combination of field experiments on a Mediterranean island invaded by black rats (Rattusra...
1. Herbivores and granivores represent one of the most influential drivers of plant abundance and population dynamics. Their effect can be, in turn, modulated by biotic or abiotic factors such as community composition, habitat characteristics or space heterogeneity. 2. Recent approaches to the study of herbivore and granivore impacts on plants have...
Aim We estimated the patterns of seed deposition provided by the eyed lizard, Timon lepidus, and evaluated whether these patterns can be generalized across plant species with different traits (fruit and seed size) and spatial distributions. Location Monteagudo Island, Atlantic Islands National Park (north-western Spain). Methods We radio-tracked se...
I am trying to frame the results recently obtained in my work, about Rattus rattus' (amongst other invasive species) density on islands. I can't seem to find any extensive review about density ranges of this species. Any help would be more than welcome.
