Remote Sensing of Phytoplankton Blooms in the Continental Shelf and Shelf-Break of Argentina: Spatio-Temporal Changes and Phenology

We studied the spatio-temporal variations of satellite chlorophyll-a (chl-a) and phytoplankton blooms in the continental shelf and shelf-break of the Argentinean patagonic region by means of an 11-years time series of level 3 (L3) MODIS/Aqua …

Potential of remote sensing to predict species invasions: A modelling perspective

Understanding the causes and effects of species invasions is a priority in ecology and conservation biology. One of the crucial steps in evaluating the impact of invasive species is to map changes in their actual and potential distribution and …

Temporal fine-scale genetic variation in the zoonosis-carrying long-tailed pygmy rice rat in Patagonia, Argentina

Factors modeling the population genetic structure are of major importance when species involved in the transmission of zoonoses are considered. The long-tailed pygmy rice rat or ‘colilargo’ Oligoryzomys longicaudatus is a highly vagile rodent species …

Estimating Hantavirus Risk in Southern Argentina: A GIS-based Approach Combining Human Cases and Host Distribution

We use a Species Distribution Modeling (SDM) approach along with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques to examine the potential distribution of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) caused by Andes virus (ANDV) in southern Argentina and, more …

La formación científica y el campo profesional en las {Ciencias} {Biológicas}: una propuesta educativa en la universidad.

In this paper we share a didactic proposal that we carried out in an introductory subject of the Biological Sciences course of studies. With this proposal we attempt to assess the understanding of Biology study field from the perspective of …

Summer–autumn distribution and abundance of the hantavirus host, Oligoryzomys longicaudatus , in northwestern Chubut, Argentina

We examined population density of Oligoryzomys longicaudatus (colilargo) and prevalence of Andes virus (ANDV) antibody at regional and landscape spatial scales in northwestern Chubut Province (Argentina) and contrasted it with climatic variables …

VARIABLES AMBIENTALES EN LA DINÁMICA ESPACIAL DE OLIGORYZOMYS LONGICAUDATUS (HUÉSPED DEL VIRUS ANDES) EN LA REGIÓN NOROESTE DE CHUBUT, ARGENTINA

Modeling Potential Distribution of Oligoryzomys longicaudatus, the Andes Virus (Genus: Hantavirus) Reservoir, in Argentina

We constructed a model to predict the potential distribution of Oligoryzomys longicaudatus, the reservoir of Andes virus (Genus: Hantavirus), in Argentina. We developed an extensive database of occurrence records from published studies and our own …

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT FOR THE USE OF SPACE INFORMATION IN SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL SIMULATION OF RODENT POPULATION DYNAMICS

The space technology and the use of space science products offer a vast range of research topics and applications for computer scientists. These research applications are of mandatory interest at the Gulich Institute, a CONAE (Argentine National …

Environmental factors and population fluctuations of Akodon azarae (Muridae: Sigmodontinae) in central Argentina

The aim of this work was to explore the relationship between population density of Akodon azarae (Muridae: Sigmodontinae) and climatic and environmental variables, and determine which of them are associated to within and among-year changes in rodent …
