Disease outbreaks among penguins at sub-Antarctic Marion Island: a conservation concern
(An International Peer-Reviewed Journal of Seabird Science and Conservation, 2009)
In 1992 and 1993, unknown diseases killed 250–300 King Penguins Aptenodytes patagonicus and an estimated 5–10 thousand Macaroni Penguins Eudyptes chrysolophus at sub-Antarctic Marion Island. At the same island, an outbreak ...
Disentangling the roles of environment and space in ecology
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2007)
Tests of the mid-domain hypotheses: A review of the evidence
(Ecological Society of America, 2008)
Geographic variation of species richness is strongly correlated with environmental gradients. However, random arrangement of species distributions within a bounded domain can also theoretically produce richness gradients ...
Latitudinal and longitudinal barriers in global biogeography
(The Royal Society, 2006)
Due to changes in climate and continental arrangement, plant and animal assemblages faced different dispersal barriers at different moments in Earth’s history. It is generally accepted that groups which diversified ...
The acute hypoxic ventilatory response: Testing the adaptive significance in human populations
The acute Hypoxic Ventilatory Response (HVR) is an important component of human hypoxia tolerance, hence presumably physiological adaptation to high altitude. We measured the isocapnic HVR (L min1 %1) in two genetically ...
