Homologous recombination and Xylella fastidiosa host-pathogen associations in South America

  
Phytopathology, Vol. 107, No. 3. (March 2017), pp. 305-312, https://doi.org/10.1094/phyto-09-16-0321-r

Abstract

Homologous recombination affects the evolution of bacteria such as Xylella fastidiosa, a naturally competent plant pathogen that requires insect vectors for dispersal. This bacterial species is taxonomically divided into subspecies, with phylogenetic clusters within subspecies that are host specific. One subspecies, pauca, is primarily limited to South America, with the exception of recently reported strains in Europe and Costa Rica. Despite the economic importance of X. fastidiosa subsp. pauca in South America, little is known about its genetic diversity. Multilocus sequence ...

Monte Verde: seaweed, food, medicine, and the peopling of South America

  
Science, Vol. 320, No. 5877. (2008), pp. 784-786, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1156533

Abstract

The identification of human artifacts at the early archaeological site of Monte Verde in southern Chile has raised questions of when and how people reached the tip of South America without leaving much other evidence in the New World. Remains of nine species of marine algae were recovered from hearths and other features at Monte Verde II, an upper occupational layer, and were directly dated between 14,220 and 13,980 calendar years before the present (~12,310 and 12,290 carbon-14 years ago). These ...

 

Nature vs. nurture: managing relationships between forests, agroforestry and wild biodiversity

  
Agroforestry Systems, Vol. 61-62, No. 1-3. (2004), pp. 155-165, https://doi.org/10.1023/b%3aagfo.0000028996.92553.ea

Abstract

Many agroforestry systems are found in places that otherwise would be appropriate for natural forests, and often have replaced them. Humans have had a profound influence on forests virtually everywhere they both are found. Thus ‘natural’ defined as ‘without human influence’ is a hypothetical construct, though one that has assumed mythological value among many conservationists. Biodiversity is a forest value that does not carry a market price. It is the foundation, however, upon which productive systems depend. The relationship between agroforestry ...

 

Pine invasions in the southern hemisphere: modelling interactions between organism, environment and disturbance

  
Plant Ecology In Plant Ecology, Vol. 135, No. 1. (1998), pp. 79-93, https://doi.org/10.1023/a%3a1009760512895

Abstract

Current theories of plant invasion have been criticized for their limited heuristic and predictive value. We explore the heuristic and predictive potential of a model which explicitly simulates the mechanisms of plant invasion. The model, a spatially-explicit individual-based simulation, is applied to the invasion of pine trees (Pinus spp.; Pinaceae) in three vegetation types in the southern hemisphere. The model simulates factors which have been invoked as major determinants of invasive success: plant traits, environmental features and disturbance level. Results show ...

 

Growth development of hardwood high value timber species in central south Chile, South America

  
In Proceedings of 4th International Scientific Conference on Hardwood Processing 2013, Vol. 1, No. 2. (2013), pp. 50-61

Abstract

Considering the interesting markets that timber of several hardwood species have, and the productive potential of Chile, in the central southern area of the country, in the last 20 years several experimental trials were established, pure or mixed, located between the Araucanía and Los Lagos regions. Trials include exotic species, such as Sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua), Ash (Fraxinus excelsior), Black walnut (Juglans nigra), Chestnut (Castanea sativa), Yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), Black alder (Alnus glutinosa), Cherry tree (Prunus avium), Red American Oak (Quercus rubra) ...

Alnus cordata, comúnmente denominado Aliso italiano, es un árbol de 25 m. de altura, aunque en ocasiones puede alcanzar 30 m. y 70-80 cm de DAP en la madurez. Es una de las ...

 

Patterns of woody plant invasion in an Argentinean coastal grassland

  
Acta Oecologica, Vol. 54 (January 2014), pp. 65-71, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actao.2013.09.003

Abstract

Coastal dune grasslands are fragile ecosystems that have historically been subjected to various types of uses and human activities. In Buenos Aires Province (Argentina), these areas are frequently afforested for urban and touristic development. The introduction and subsequent spread of exotic tree species is one of the main threats to conservation of natural grasslands as invasive trees strongly transform their structure and composition. The aim of this study was to identify patterns of woody plant invasion comparing plant communities and environmental ...

 

Forest Cover Changes in Tropical South and Central America from 1990 to 2005 and Related Carbon Emissions and Removals

  
Remote Sensing, Vol. 4, No. 5. (11 May 2012), pp. 1369-1391, https://doi.org/10.3390/rs4051369

Abstract

This paper outlines the methods and results for monitoring forest change and resulting carbon emissions for the 1990–2000 and 200–2005 periods carried out over tropical Central and South America. To produce our forest change estimates we used a systematic sample of medium resolution satellite data processed to forest change maps covering 1230 sites of 20 km by 20 km, each located at the degree confluence. Biomass data were spatially associated to each individual sample site so that annual carbon emissions could ...

 

Functional megadiversity

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 111, No. 16. (22 April 2014), pp. 5763-5764, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1402618111

Abstract

[Excerpt] Western Amazonian and Andean forests have Earth’s highest biodiversity and are globally important for ecosystem services and climate regulation. Straddling the planet’s longest ecological gradients, they have captured the imagination of scientists since von Humboldt (1). However, ecological studies and theory have incorporated that spectacular biological variation in only the most rudimentary ways, or not at all. It is widely understood that there are many traits that are important to plant performance, consequential not only for things like carbon gain ...
