Archaeozoological researches on the northern Levant in the Iron Age
This work, an archaeozoological study, deals with the food economy of an Iron Age settlement, relying on the faunal remains from the site of Tell Tweini as its prime source. It also endeavours to analyse the way animals were exploited at the time in the Levantine area. In the Iron Age, animal econom...
Spring migration of Blackpoll Warblers across North America
The awe-inspiring seasonal migrations of birds between breeding and wintering grounds has long attracted the interest of casual naturalists and professional ornithologists alike. Although new technologies improve our ability to follow individual migrants throughout their annual cycle, the scale and...
Modeling Habitat Associations for the Common Loon (Gavia immer) at Multiple Scales in Northeastern North America
Common Loon (Gavia immer) is considered an emblematic and ecologically important example of aquatic-dependent wildlife in North America. The northern breeding range of Common Loon has contracted over the last century as a result of habitat degradation from human disturbance and lakeshore development...
Cameroon ornithological report for the years 1995-2000
International audience The present ornithological report for the Camargue covers six years (1995-2000). This time-period was characterized by mild and wet winters (except the winter of 1999-2000 which was very dry but remained mild). The mean temperatures were all higher than those measured previous...
Sex-biased dispersal in western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla).
International audience We explored two hypotheses related to potential differences between sexes in dispersal behaviour in western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla). Direct observations suggest that immature females have more opportunities to move between breeding groups than immature males...

Population levels and productivity of the Himalayan Griffon (Gyps himalayensis) in Baitadi District, Nepal
The Himalayan Griffon (Gyps himalayensis), is a globally near threatened vulture species that nests in the cliffs of mid hills and Himalayas of Nepal. We studied the Himnalayan Griffon breeding population and productivity on its prominent nesting sites at Khodpe in Baitatdi district, Nepal from 2010...
Assessment of the seabird community of the Mozambique Channel and its potential use as an indicator of tuna abundance
International audience Tropical seabirds are known to associate with aggregations of surface dwelling predators, like tunas when feeding. Some species are even regarded as near obligate commensals of tunas. As food is one of the main factors that shape breeding strategies and determine breeding succ...
Protection zones around nesting sites for rare bird species – specificity of the legal regime in Ukraine
The article deals with the changes in the legislation of Ukraine during 2016–2018, which have become the impetus for a new stage of development of legal regulation and practice of creation of protected areas around the breeding ground of wild birds, in particular, with the changes to the Sanitary Ru...
Response of Ferruginous Hawks to temporary habitat alterations for energy development in southwestern Alberta
Temperate grasslands are among the most altered biomes worldwide, largely through anthropogenic modification. The rapid construction of renewable energy projects is necessary to accommodate growing energy demands and, when existing projects are upgraded, alterations to associated infrastructure are...
Seasonal changes in environmental conditions are not driving migration in seabirds
Migration is often thought to be driven by poor environmental conditions during one season and to permit avoidance of harsh weather or resource shortage and tracking of more favourable conditions. Here, we tested this hypothesis in seabirds at the global scale by quantifying niche occupancy during t...
Seasonal variations in population and community structure of small rodents in a tropical forest of Gabon
International audience The composition, structure, and reproductive phenology of a community of murid rodents were investigated for 1 year at two sites in an undisturbed forest in southwestern Gabon, Africa. We captured 1531 mice belonging to 11 species and eight genera. At both sites, species richn...
Neotropical dry forest recovery and its impact on the avian community
Degree: Doctor of Philosophy Abstract: Neotropical dry forests are severely threatened by human activities such as agricultural expansion, tourism, cattle ranching, logging, and an increase in human settlements. However, despite these trends, some countries have experienced forest recovery. Costa Ri...
Testing for local adaptation in brown trout using reciprocal transplants.
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Local adaptation can drive the divergence of populations but identification of the traits under selection remains a major challenge in evolutionary biology. Reciprocal transplant experiments are ideal tests of local adaptation, yet rarely used for higher vertebrates because of...
Bibliographical summary: larval ecology of culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae)
Review: larval ecology of Culicoides biting midges (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae). This paper reviews the larval ecology of Culicoides Latreille (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) in order to bring together knowledge, often very scattered, of breeding sites currently identified worldwide for the main species of...
Breeding dispersal in female North American red squirrels
Although natal dispersal has received considerable attention from animal ecologists, the causes and consequences of breeding dispersal have remained largely unexplored. We used telemetry, direct observation, and long-term mark-recapture (9 yr) to study breeding dispersal in the North American red sq...
Spatial patterns of goose grubbing suggest elevated grubbing in dry habitats linked to early snowmelt
The western Palaearctic tundra is a breeding habitat for large populations of European geese. After their arrival in spring, pink-footed geese (Anser brachyrhynchus) forage extensively on below-ground plant parts, using a feeding technique called grubbing that has substantial impact on the tundra ve...

A model to predict the likelihood of cliff swallow nesting on highway structures in northern California
Cliff swallows (Petrochelidon pyrrhonota) are colonially breeding migratory birds that frequently nest on highway structures. Under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, people cannot harm swallows or their active nests. This restriction causes problems and delays for construction and maintenance d...
Influence of breeding sites bacterial communities on Aedes aegypti microbiome and vector competence for dengue and Zika viruses
Resistance monitoring in Culex pipiens (Diptera, Culicidae) from Central-Eastern France
International audience Insensitive acetylcholinesterase (Ace(R)) and five over-produced esterases (A1, A2 and B2, and A4 and B4) involved in detoxification are responsible for resistance to organophosphorous insecticides (OPs) in Culex pipiens L. from the Rhone-Alpes region, where C. pipiens control...
Identification of Mosquito Larva in Water Containers in Line with the Knowledge, Attitude and Practice of Cleaning Service in Relation to Mosquito Breeding at Pascasarjana Unsri
Mosquitoes are vectors of several diseases for humans. To eradicate mosquitoes, information regarding breeding place of mosquito larva along with the knowledge and role of cleaning service are required. This study was aimed to identify water container as breeding sites for mosquitoes and as well as...
Distribution and habitat preferences of Southern Hemisphere humpback whales during the breeding season
Of key importance for the comprehension of humpback whales’ (Megaptera novaeangliae) distribution patterns and habitat use is to quantify how ecological and environmental factors affect the distribution of animals, which requires knowledge on dispersal movements of individuals. Using an opportunisti...
Faunistic registration of the Mariano Miró site: the food practices of the first settlers in the north of La Pampa at the beginning of the 20th century
In this article, the faunal record recovered at the Mariano Miró site located in the northeast of the dry pampa (Chapaleufú department, La Pampa Province, Argentina) is analyzed. Mariano Miró was a town founded in 1901 alongside the station of the Western Railroad and, although the population stood...
A co‐development approach to conservation leads to informed habitat design and rapid establishment of amphibian communities
Abstract 1. Effective wildlife restoration is a critical requirement of many conservation actions. The outcome of conservation interventions can be optimized through knowledge of species’ habitat requirements, but few studies consider the impact of using explicit evidence from dedicated local resear...
