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
Food availability together with climate are known factors driving frugivorous bats reproductive patterns in tropical ecosystems. Their diets are very diverse, with different species specializing in consuming the fruits of different plant species and genera. Therefore, due to differential timing in fruiting, different species of bats can be expecte...
We report the first records of the poorly known crab spider Tmarus longicaudatus Millot, 1942 in Mauritania, Namibia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The new record in Mauritania extends the distribution of the species by almost 2750 km to the west from the closest and type locality in Niger. The new record in Namibia is 1000 km north of the clo...
Se describe la observación de un combate entre dos machos de víbora áspid Vipera aspis en el Sistema Ibérico riojano (España), siendo la primera vez que se documenta este comportamiento en la península ibérica. Además, se pone de manifiesto lo temprano de la observación, finales de febrero, para una localidad situada por encima de los 1000 msnm.
The poorly known species of wafer-lid trapdoor spider Bolostromus panamanus (Petrunkevitch, 1925) (Mygalomorphae: Cyrtaucheniidae) is formally reported from Costa Rica for the first time, based on a female collected in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. The specimen is described and the first pictures of a living specimen, diagnostic traits, and spermathec...
Preliminary results from the acoustic surveys conducted in the Western Sahara-Sahel region
Underground roosts play a key role in the conservation of cave-dwelling bats. In regions where natural roosts are scarce, human-made artificial roosts can host important populations of these species. The roosts studied in the present work are two railway tunnels abandoned in 1984 that have become one of the biggest cavedwelling bats roosts in the r...
The widely distributed Epicadus taczanowski (Roewer, 1951) (Thomisidae: Stephanopinae) is formally reported from Costa Rica for the first time. This record, based on a single specimen found at Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, extends its known distribu-tion range 110 Km north-west of the closest known recorded locality, in Panama.
Bird records from SW Mauritania collected during a field expedition carried out in winter 2020.
During a 12 day field survey we recorded mammal and bird species (live trapping, camera traps and observations) from Oued Drâa and Oued Chebeika in Morocco.
RESUMEN Los murciélagos tienen una esperanza de vida inusualmente larga entre los mamíferos, y se encuentran en el extremo lento en el "continuo rápido-lento" de las historias de vida de los mamíferos. En esta nota, informamos la recuperación de un Rhinolophus euryale macho anillado en La Rioja (España) con una edad mínima de 21 años, lo que repres...
Two of the most important hibernating and breeding colonies of cave-dwelling bats in Salamanca (western Spain) are located in two abandoned railway tunnels on the border with Portugal. Due to a renewal project that will allow their use as a hiking route, the touristic pressure is expected to increase the following spring. We are monthly monitoring the colonies so that in the future the effects of this project on the conservation status may be determined.
Studying the bat community in oak (Quercus ilex and Q. pyrenaica) forests of Sierra de Quilamas, Salamanca, Spain. Diversity will be assessed by mist-netting and habitat use by full spectrum recording of ultrasonic calls.
