Biological invasions occur when individuals of alien species establish and colonize new locations. The House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) is one of the most widespread invasive birds, native to Eurasia and North Africa, and has successfully invaded many regions from across the world. The House Sparro…

The unusually high floral and faunal similarity between the different regions of the Afromontane archipelago has been noted by biogeographers since the late 1800s. A possible explanation for this similarity is the spread of montane habitat into the intervening lowlands during the glacial periods of …

Urban expansion poses a serious threat to biodiversity. Given that the expected area of urban land cover is predicted to increase by 2–3 million km2 by 2050, urban environments are one of the most widespread human-dominated land-uses affecting biodiversity. Responses to urbanization differ greatly a…

The Juniperus genus has long been used and studied for the chemical components of its aerial parts (leaves, bark, twigs) and their bioactivity. Nevertheless, these studies and their compilation have been primarily focused on Europe and North America distributed taxa, leaving the knowledge and econom…

Species of Russula are ubiquitous members of ectomycorrhizal fungal communities in tropical ecosystems. However, an important part of the total tropical diversity of this genus and its biogeographic patterns is unknown due to the lack of studies on Russula in tropical ecosystems. We combined molecul…

BACKGROUND: Invasive alien species cause substantial impacts on ecosystem, economy, and public health. Therefore, identifying areas at risk of invasion and establishment is essential for the development and implementation of preventive measures. In this study, we integrated information on species ha…

Yaqui Catfish Ictalurus pricei is an understudied species with limited information of its ecology, distribution, and local habitat use. Native to the southwest United States and northwest Mexico, Yaqui Catfish populations are declining which has prompted the species to be listed as threatened in the…

The increase in anthropogenic activities that lead to fragmentation and habitat loss, could result in a reduction of connectivity among habitat patches of terrestrial species. We used ecological niche models, circuit and graph theories to evaluate functional connectivity among home-range patches and…

Endangered species lists (or red lists) are important tools for species conservation, but if they are not supported by data and they are inappropriately applied, they can be sources of conflict. Here, we present and discuss the dilemma of the trigonal clam Tivela mactroides, a beach bivalve used as …

Based on a review of literature related to the biological diversity of the inter-Andean Seasonally Dry Tropical Forest of the Marañón valley (ISDTFM), located in the regions of Cajamarca, Amazonas, Piura, La Libertad, Ancash and Huánuco (Perú), this study highlights the richness of endemic species o…
