Spatial-functional pattern of ecotonal riparian landscapes on Meridional Plateau, Southern Brazil

with 47 corridors. In the riparian zones, VH areas occupy the flood plains showing higher variability in size and spatial distribution. This summarizes the natural fragmentation of the riparian ... is the lack of replicated sites that share a pattern of spatial distribution, which provide a statistical basis of the properties and behavior of the patterns identified. This study analyzes the


This paper analyzes the importance of the relations that the rural and urban community members undergo in three Chilean indigenous peoples as a result of migrations and the spatial mobility provoked ... migrations and the spatial mobility provoked by a more active participation in the regional work force and economic markets. The validity and importance of these social networks permits their definition as

Population dynamics and socio-spatial organization of the Aurignacian: Scalable quantitative demographic data for western and central Europe

population during the Aurignacian as well as marked regional differences in population size and density. Demographic increase and patterns of socio-spatial organization continue during the subsequent early ... implicit references to this field are common in the literature. Currently available estimates operate only at single spatial scales, using either regional [ 8, 9 ] or pan-European [ 10?12 ] frameworks to

Tracing long-term demographic changes: The issue of spatial scales

This paper deals with the analysis of long-term changes in population densities at the regional and macro-regional scale and in the density of metapopulations. The following issues concerning ... areas in the latter populations decreased over time, which is taken into account in estimations. Changes in population density are traced at several spatial scales. Regional density, which is also

Scientometrics: the project for a science of science transformed into an industry of measurements

This paper discusses the intellectual justification of scientometrics through the claim that it is part of the quest for a quantitative science of science. Initially, I will make a brief description

The place of metaphysics in the science-religion debate

Metaphysics has no place in the science-religion discourses (or dialogues) if understood as an a priori universal content of the nature and causes of all things. From an overview of the positive and

With open science gaining traction, do we need an Australasia PubMed Central (PMC)? A qualitative investigation

Australasia PubMed Central was the objective of this research. The investigation is novel, assisting in the development of open science infrastructure through its systematic analysis of the potential interest ... may be possible from adopting a PMC for retrieving and transferring research, linked to the data underlying the research. This in turn could help put regional research under a brighter spotlight

Assimilating MODIS data-derived minimum input data set and water stress factors into CERES-Maize model improves regional corn yield predictions

crop growth model using minimum inputs was successful for predicting regional yields, and it should be examined for spatial portability to diverse agro-climatic and agro-technology regions. ... challenging due to the difficulty of obtaining many input parameters of the model at a regional scale and uncertainties in the parameters due to spatial variability [ 5,7?8 ]. Remote sensing data provide

Spatial variation in a top marine predator’s diet at two regionally distinct sites

. Therefore, accurate estimations of predator diet at relevant spatial and temporal scales are key to understanding energetic requirements, predator-prey interactions and ecosystem structure. We investigate ... potential intra-specific regional variation in predator diet must be considered when implementing spatial plans over wider geographic scales. Obtaining detailed information on seal diet composition at

Regional science in a resource-constrained world

This paper presents challenges to mainstream regional science that stem from the fact that regional economies are subsumed within larger social, economic and environmental systems. The constraints

Using person factors in social science research
