Abstract The fragmentation of natural environments is one of the most important threats to biodiversity and involves changes in landscape configuration and habitat quality. The Atlantic Forest of South America has been highly fragmented, which creates concern for the conservation of its biodiversity. We evaluated the effects of forest loss and fragmentation on the terrestrial mammal assemblage of the Atlantic Forest of Misiones, Argentina. The area still contains large fragments and a forest cov...

Abstract During recent years the relevance of environmental ethics to nature conservation has been increasingly questioned. This doubt mainly takes two forms: (1) Conservation biology is regarded as solely a scientific endeavor, and therefore ethics is redundant; (2) It is acknowledged that values are part and parcel of conservation science, practice and policy, but environmental ethics is considered to have little positive contribution to make. We focus on the latter form and argue that it enab...

Abstract Inadvertent shooting of protected species due to misidentification or spatio-temporal coincidence with more abundant target species of similar appearance and habits is a frequent side-effect of sport hunting. Protected corvid species of special conservation concern were present in all Spanish Autonomous regions where hunting of corvids of similar appearance and habits is legally permitted.We assessed the extent to which Western jackdaws (Corvus monedula) and Red-billed choughs (Pyrrhoco...

Abstract Crocodylians are large predators and ecological keystone species in wetland ecosystems. In Bolivia a total of five species occur, all of which are members of the family Alligatoridae: Caiman yacare, C. latirostris, Melanosuchus niger, Paleosuchus palpebrosus, and P. trigonatus. Beginning in the mid-1800s, wild populations were reduced and threatened by unsustainable exploitation, commercial hunting, lack of wildlife law enforcement, and poor management strategies. Economic incentives th...

Abstract Biodiversity is currently experiencing an accelerated decline in terms of species and populations, mainly because of habitat loss. The designation of protected areas has therefore become essential for biodiversity conservation. However, compelling evidence for the long-term effectiveness of protected areas in maintaining species diversity is still scarce, especially for plant species, as analyses are often hampered by the limited availability of informative datasets from different time ...

Abstract In tropical regions, expanding human activities have become increasingly threatening to the ecological integrity of protected areas. Shifting cultivation and other agricultural activities around the protected areas by rural communities often lead to increased carbon emissions, wildlife habitat destruction and increasing hunting pressure. Land use planning, with the participation of local communities in the buffer zones, is being considered to strengthen the implementation of the Man and...

Abstract We propose a method for assessing the persistence of species where the resource is harvested. Four sustainability measures are employed, namely a population measure, a harvest measure, a profitability measure and a catchability measure. These are used to assess the sustainability of two natural resources representing terrestrial and aquatic species, namely White Rhino (Ceratotherium simum) and South African abalone (Haliotis Midae) species, respectively. The framework is used to evaluat...

Abstract The current biodiversity crisis has stimulated the creation of protected areas, a fundamental conservation tool for halting biodiversity loss. Moreover, protected areas are often accessed by researchers for field observations and natural experiments, thus representing also an important tool promoting biodiversity discoveries. Here, we investigated the importance of protected areas in achieving both conservation and scientific roles for anurans in the Brazilian Cerrado. We specifically c...

Abstract Habitat fragmentation threatens biodiversity, causes population isolation and reduces the availability of resources. When species ranges span geopolitical borders, management of transboundary populations and securing their connectivity can be compromised by different conservation priorities and juridical efforts. Using a combination of species distribution modelling and circuit theory, we modelled suitable habitats for four conservation-dependent mammalian megafauna in northeastern Iran...
Abstract Specific mechanisms for result-oriented payment schemes using vascular plant taxa have been discussed as possible targeted approaches for promoting European species-rich grasslands. Most indicator lists are restricted to a limited number of frequently occurring indicator taxa. However, these lists often do not adequately reflect the most valuable grasslands in terms of conservation. Thus, we developed a procedure for selecting indicator species from an expanded checklist as well as a pr...
