Across the world old-growth forests are rapidly diminishing due to anthropogenic forest conversion. Simultaneously, forest recovery in human-modified landscapes has led to an increase of secondary forests, which may have the potential to mitigate loss of biodiversity and provide important ecosystem services. Human impacts regulate both tree and animal abundances, but in a different way,...
Tropical forests are under intense human activities, which lead to fragmentation and habitat loss. Fragmentation results in the isolation of remnants and therefore disrupts the connectivity among populations. The interruption of gene flow associated with the reduction in population size due to habitat loss can intensify inbreeding and genetic drift, reducing genetic diversity in the med...
Abstract:The spatial heterogeneity and the natural fragmentation of montane environments may drive divergent selective pressures across the landscape. Contrasting selective pressures associated with low gene flow is able to trigger adaptive responses such as local adaptation and phenotypic plasticity. Both adaptive mechanisms play an important role in the evolutionary trend of populatio...
