Species distribution modeling and assessment of the possible current conservation status for loma-forming Tillandsia purpurea Ruiz & Pavón in Peru were performed. This species is considered an epiarenic species that lives under hyperarid conditions, where its main source of water and nutrients comes…

Maciel, E. A., Oliveira-Filho, A. T., Sobral-Souza, T. S., Marimon, B. S., Cupertino-Eisenlohr, M. A., José-Silva, L., & Eisenlohr, P. V. (2021). Climate change forecasts suggest that the conservation area network in the Cerrado-Amazon transition zone needs to be expanded. Acta Oecologica, 112, 103764. doi:10.1016/j.actao.2021.103764 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actao.2021.103764

Climate change impacts are important in shaping large ecotones, such as the transition zone between the Cerrado and Amazon rainforest (CAT) biogeographical domains. The accelerating rate of conversion of native vegetation, the most important factor for biodiversity loss in the Anthropocene, compound…

Baumbach, L., Warren, D. L., Yousefpour, R., & Hanewinkel, M. (2021). Climate change may induce connectivity loss and mountaintop extinction in Central American forests. Communications Biology, 4(1). doi:10.1038/s42003-021-02359-9 https://doi.org/10.1038/s42003-021-02359-9

The tropical forests of Central America serve a pivotal role as biodiversity hotspots and provide ecosystem services securing human livelihood. However, climate change is expected to affect the species composition of forest ecosystems, lead to forest type transitions and trigger irrecoverable losses…

Lopes, A., Demarchi, L. O., Franco, A. C., Ferreira, A. B., Ferreira, C. S., Wittmann, F., … Piedade, M. T. F. (2021). Predicting the potential distribution of aquatic herbaceous plants in oligotrophic Central Amazonian wetland ecosystems. Acta Botanica Brasilica. doi:10.1590/0102-33062020abb0188 https://doi.org/10.1590/0102-33062020abb0188

Aquatic herbaceous plants are especially suitable for mapping environmental variability in wetlands, as they respond quickly to environmental gradients and are good indicators of habitat preference. We describe the composition of herbaceous species in two oligotrophic wetland ecosystems, floodplains…

Salazar Zarzosa, P., Mendieta-Leiva, G., Navarro-Cerrillo, R. M., Cruz, G., Grados, N., & Villar, R. (2021). An ecological overview of Prosopis pallida, one of the most adapted dryland species to extreme climate events. Journal of Arid Environments, 193, 104576. doi:10.1016/j.jaridenv.2021.104576 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jaridenv.2021.104576

Prosopis pallida (algarrobo) is a highly adapted species to extremely dry and wet conditions. Its geographic distribution at both sides of the Pacific Ocean is associated with its plastic response to El Niño event, an extreme climate event that changes precipitation regimes. In this review, we summa…

Gomides, S. C., Machado, T. M., Evangelista‐Vale, J. C., Martins‐Oliveira, A. T., Pires‐Oliveira, J. C., Muller, A., … Eisenlohr, P. V. (2021). Assessing species reintroduction sites based on future climate suitability for food resources. Conservation Biology. doi:10.1111/cobi.13796 https://doi.org/10.1111/cobi.13796

The reintroduction of a species that is extinct in the wild demands caution because reintroduction locations may be associated with threats, such as hunting, poor-quality habitat, and climate change. This is the case for Cyanopsitta spixii (Spix's Macaw), which has been extinct in the wild since 200…

Catarino, S., Brilhante, M., Essoh, A. P., Charrua, A. B., Rangel, J., Roxo, G., … Romeiras, M. M. (2021). Exploring physicochemical and cytogenomic diversity of African cowpea and common bean. Scientific Reports, 11(1). doi:10.1038/s41598-021-91929-2 https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-021-91929-2

In sub-Saharan Africa, grain legumes (pulses) are essential food sources and play an important role in sustainable agriculture. Among the major pulse crops, the native cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) and introduced common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) stand out. This paper has two main goals. First, we provi…
