1. Water: A drought plan for biodiversity.

    Nature 521(7552):289 (2015) PMID 25993951

  2. Species, extinct before we know them?

    Current Biology 25(5):R177 (2015) PMID 25734261

    Species are going extinct rapidly, while taxonomic catalogues are still incomplete for even the best-known taxa. Intensive fieldwork is finding species so rare and threatened that some become extinct within years of discovery. Recent bird extinctions in Brazil's coastal forests suggest that some...

  7. Poor prospects for avian biodiversity in Amazonian oil palm.

    PLoS ONE 10(5):e0122432 (2015) PMID 25955243 PMCID PMC4425670

    Expansion of oil palm plantations across the humid tropics has precipitated massive loss of tropical forest habitats and their associated speciose biotas. Oil palm plantation monocultures have been identified as an emerging threat to Amazonian biodiversity, but there are no quantitative studies ...
  8. Road networks predict human influence on Amazonian bird communities.

    Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological ... 281(1795) (2014) PMID 25274363 PMCID PMC4213623

    Road building can lead to significant deleterious impacts on biodiversity, varying from direct road-kill mortality and direct habitat loss associated with road construction, to more subtle indirect impacts from edge effects and fragmentation. However, little work has been done to evaluate the sp...
  9. Two hundred years of local avian extinctions in eastern Amazonia.

    Conservation Biology 28(5):1271 (2014) PMID 24779443

    Local, regional, and global extinctions caused by habitat loss, degradation, and fragmentation have been widely reported for the tropics. The patterns and drivers of this loss of species are now increasingly well known in Amazonia, but there remains a significant gap in understanding of long-ter...

  20. Biodiversity conservation in human-modified Amazonian forest landscapes

    Biological Conservation 143(10):2314 (2010)

    Amazonia ( sensu lato) is by far the largest tropical forest region, but has succumbed to the highest absolute rates of tropical deforestation and forest degradation, driven by rapid frontier expansion, road-building, and spontaneous or government-subsidized migration. The large area-...
