Abstract

Livestock production in Latin America is strongly associated with deforestation. Silvopastoral systems are an alternative; however, the relation between animal welfare and tree coverage has been poorly studied. We hypothesized that a connection between these features exist and that its evaluation...

Abstract

In the coming decades, the rapid expansion of livestock production in highly biodiverse regions is likely to increase deforestation, threatening biodiversity and disrupting key ecological functions. However, the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function in tropical...

Abstract

Hard ticks are a perennial problem in livestock systems throughout Mexico. No data are currently available on tick prevalence, infestation intensity and population dynamics for sheep in the humid tropics of Mexico. Blackbelly sheep (n=30) in Tabasco state, Mexico, were examined every 3 weeks for 1...

Abstract

Pasture and grazing land is one of the dominant global land-uses in the Anthropocene. There are two broad strategies for preserving phylogenetic diversity (PD) within livestock regions: land sharing, which increases farmland heterogeneity at the expense of yield and forest cover, and land sparing,...

AbstractFull Text

In order to analyze the adaptation strategies to climate risks in livestock production, concepts were reviewed and case studies are presented in sheep production systems in temperate zones and bovine dual purpose in the dry tropics. The most often documented climate events with probability of risks ...

Abstract

Deforestation of tropical dry forest reduces soil fertility, with negative effects on future restoration intervention. To evaluate the effect of initial soil properties on three-year performance of six tree species in restoration settings, we measured C, N, and P contents in topsoils of 48 plots...

Abstract

Climate change may modify the spatial distribution of reservoirs hosting emerging and reemerging zoonotic pathogens, and forecasting these changes is essential for developing prevention and adaptation strategies. The most important reservoir of bovine paralytic rabies in tropical countries, is the...

Abstract

Balancing the production of food, particularly meat, with preserving biodiversity and maintaining ecosystem services is a major societal challenge. Research into the contrasting strategies of land sparing and land sharing has suggested that land sparing-combining high-yield agriculture with the...

AbstractFull Text

The Criollo Lechero Tropical (CLT) bovines are considered a racial group native to America, with good potential for milk production based on pasture. These breeds have a lower production volume, but higher milk quality (total solids) and resistance to stress in tropical climates, compared with...
