Mammals, Birds and Beetles in Mexico’s Forests

Dr Víctor Arroyo-Rodríguez (Centro de Investigaciones en Ecosistemas, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), campus Morelia) has published extensively on biological impacts of land use changes in Mexico’s forests. He and his team recorded abundances of mammals (including bats), birds, dung beetles and trees in plots located in forests fragments and continuous forests.

These data will be analysed using Vero’s patch delineation algorithm (contact us if you would like to use it for your habitat maps) and Rob’s BIOFRAG metric to assess community turnover in response to forest fragmentation in tropical forests.
