Implementation of a proactive system to monitor Aedes aegypti populations using open access historical and forecasted meteorological data

Due to the global increase in mosquito-borne diseases outbreaks it is recommended to increase surveillance and monitoring of vector species to respond swiftly and with early warning indicators. Usually, however, the information about vector presence …

Challenging population dynamics models with new data: How accurate were our inferences?

Given the lack of further data, many studies in population dynamics and in ecology in general fail to demonstrate the forecasting or predictive power of the models they propose. Meanwhile, this is basic to scientific research growth in that it allows …

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 …

Population dynamics of two rodent species in agro-ecosystems of central Argentina: intra-specific competition, land-use, and climate effects

Understanding the role of feedback structure (endogenous processes) and exogenous (climatic and environmental) factors in shaping the dynamics of natural populations is a central challenge within the field of population ecology. We attempted to …
