Abstract

In terrestrial ectotherms, body temperatures have a pronounced effect on their physiological processes and life history traits. This study was conducted to determine what the thermal preferences of adult female scorpions, Paruroctonus marksi, are and whether their body temperature influences their...

Abstract

Novel ecosystems are characterized by species compositions and relative abundances that differ from those that occurred previously and have the potential for introducing ecological change. In this study, we evaluated bird species that are able to dwell in novel ecosystems in a representative area...

We studied the roaming patterns of companion cats in Denmark. The movements of 97 cats with outdoor access were traced for about seven days using GPS tracking. Data on the cats were gathered from their owners. The median time cats spent away from their homes was 5 h per day (IQR: 2.5 to 8.8 h),...

Abstract

Understanding the spatial variation in species richness and the mechanisms that limit species range sizes along geographical gradients belong to the central research issues in macroecology. Here, we aim to test the topographic and climatic effects on anuran species richness and community...

Abstract

Animal welfare consideration and actions are generally addressed to animals similar to us, predominantly large mammals. Invertebrates are neglected partly because they are unknown, though new exploration of the oceans has helped with this. Also, we know little about their ecology and welfare. This...

Abstract

The causes of intraspecific variation in diet and isotopic niche width can provide important insights into the local food resource requirements for a population. This information is particularly important for highly philopatric colonially nesting species, where local competition for food resources...

Abstract

But fish cognitive ecology did not begin in rivers and streams. Rather, one of the starting points for work on fish cognitive ecology was work done on the use of visual cues by homing pigeons. Prior to working with fish, Victoria Braithwaite helped to establish that homing pigeons rely not just on...

Abstract

Phoresy is commonly considered to be a commensal interaction, in which one species hitches a ride upon a different species for dispersal among resource patches. Despite being ubiquitous, phoretic interactions are poorly investigated, limiting our current understanding of its ecological and...

Abstract

The invasive sally lightfoot crab Percnon gibbesi (H. Milne Edwards, 1853) has spread among the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea, including the coasts of Annaba Gulf (Algeria). Investigating the trophic position of the species and looking for the seasonal variations in the diet of this alien decapod ...
