Does logging and forest conversion to oil palm agriculture alter functional diversity in a biodiversity hotspot?

Anim Conserv 2014 Apr 9;17(2):163-173. Epub 2013 Oct 9.

School of Biology, University of Leeds Leeds, UK.

Forests in Southeast Asia are rapidly being logged and converted to oil palm. These changes in land-use are known to affect species diversity but consequences for the functional diversity of species assemblages are poorly understood. Environmental filtering of species with similar traits could lead to disproportionate reductions in trait diversity in degraded habitats. Read More

Losing uniqueness - shifts in carabid species composition during dry grassland and heathland succession.

Anim Conserv 2013 Dec 17;16(6):661-670. Epub 2013 Apr 17.

Ecosystem Analysis Institute of Environmental Science University of Koblenz-Landau Landau Germany.

Dry sand ecosystems, such as dry grasslands and heathlands, have suffered habitat loss and degradation due to land-use changes and are today among the most endangered habitats in Central Europe. To evaluate the impact of degradation processes on habitat quality, we investigated how succession from sparse vegetated sand ecosystems to grass-invaded and tree-dominated ecosystems and the environmental parameters associated with it influences carabid assemblages. We also determined to what extent typical xerophilic species assemblages still exist. Read More

Survival on the ark: life history trends in captive parrots.

Anim Conserv 2012 Feb;15(1):28-53

Department of Biology, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM, USA.

Members of the order Psittaciformes (parrots and cockatoos) are among the most long-lived and endangered avian species. Comprehensive data on lifespan and breeding are critical to setting conservation priorities, parameterizing population viability models, and managing captive and wild populations. To meet these needs, we analyzed 83, 212 life history records of captive birds from the International Species Information System and calculated lifespan and breeding parameters for 260 species of parrots (71% of extant species).

Seasonal and geographical distribution of cave-dwelling bats in Romania: implications for conservation.

Authors:
Z L Nagy T Postawa

Anim Conserv 2011 Feb 12;14(1):74-86. Epub 2010 Oct 12.

Institute of Systematics and Evolution of Animals, Polish Academy of Sciences, Kraków, Poland.

Caves offer bats refuges for hibernation, breeding and other social events. Their quality is important for species distribution. The role of cave microclimate as well as other environmental factors influencing the distribution of cave-dwelling species, is poorly known. Read More

Seroprevalence of pathogens in domestic carnivores on the border of Madidi National Park, Bolivia.

Anim Conserv 2004 Feb 28;7(1):45-54. Epub 2006 Feb 28.

Cornell University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, Section of Virology, College of Veterinary Medicine, Cornell University, P.O. Box 5786, Ithaca, NY 14852-5786, USA.

The importance of diseases of domestic animals in the conservation of wildlife is increasingly being recognised. Wild carnivores are susceptible to many of the pathogens carried by domestic dogs and cats and some of these pathogens have caused disease outbreaks and severe population declines in threatened species. The risk of disease spillover from domestic to wild carnivores in South America has not been extensively investigated. Read More

Infectious disease and the conservation of free-ranging large carnivores.

Anim Conserv 1999 Nov 28;2(4):241-254. Epub 2006 Feb 28.

Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA 01003, USA.

Large carnivores are of vital importance to the stability and integrity of most ecosystems, but recent declines in free-ranging populations have highlighted the potentially devastating effect of infectious diseases on their conservation. We reviewed the literature on infectious diseases of 34 large (maximum body mass of adults >20 kg) terrestrial carnivore species, 18 of which are considered to be threatened in the wild, and examined reports of antibody prevalence (seroprevalence) and cases of infection, mortality and population decline. Of 52 diseases examined, 44% were viral, 31% bacterial and the remainder were protozoal or fungal. Read More
