The biodiversity data typically available for fitting distributional models in the tropics come from museum and scientific collections which are often incomplete and prone to sampling and environmental biases. Nevertheless, most studies undertaken in tropical regions assume that collection data offers a satisfactory environmental coverage without any quantitative assessment. In this study, we investigate the effects of differences in environmental bias and coverage provided by distributional data when aggregated into different grid cell sizes, on the performance of species richness-environment models and predictions. We use an extensive data compilation, including national and regional collections, on the distribution of amphibians, reptiles and fishes in the hydrologic region of the Usumacinta River as a case study. General additive models and environmental variables are used to construct predictive models at 40, 20, 10 and 5 km grid resolutions, based on well-sampled cells. The best multivariate models included nonparametric interaction terms for the effects of precipitation and temperature and suggested an altitudinal shift in the relative importance of energy and water in determining the distribution of species richness.

For fishes, geomorphology accounted for fine scale variation in species richness along the hydrologic network, indicated by peaks in species diversity at the junction of the major rivers where major accumulation of water and sediments occurs. For all taxonomic groups, we found that sampling biases deviated most from the mean bias at the extremes of gradients accounting for important environmental factors. The pattern of environmental bias changed with grid size, with the form and amount of change being casespecific. Biases affected distribution predictions when compared with unbiased datasets. Moreover, not all models resulted best at coarser resolution as it is commonly assumed. Our results demonstrate that bias in the available data must be evaluated before mapping biodiversity distributions, irrespective of the choice of scale.

Natural Protected Areas (NPAs) are consider adequate tools for biodiversity conservation. Currently in Mexico there are 182 federal NPAs classified according to their management objectives. Chiapas is the Mexican state with the highest number of decreed NPAs and also allocates one of the largest territorial extensions for its protection. Unlike other taxa, and despite their proven ability to respond to ecosystem changes, the study of dung beetles within Mexican NPAs has been underestimated, as they are not considered as a priority group within their management and conservation programs. Based on the review of information available in publications and database on dung beetles, a list of 112 species and seven subspecies recorded in 16 of the 19 federal NPAs established in Chiapas is presented.

The species recorded by each NPA show a significant correlation with the number of publications, but a low percentage of them correspond to studies with systematic samplings and most of the species reported in several of the NPAs come from sporadic records, which prevents the study of several basic and applied aspects of dung beetles in the region. Therefore, studies that extensively analyze the communities of arthropod groups, such as the Scarabaeinae, are necessary to understand their response to changes in the ecosystem at local and regional scale. It is advisable that these insects be included in the previous justifying studies for the designation or establishment of NPAs and, in turn, considered in the biological monitoring programs of these areas for their capacity as a bioindicator group.

Resumen en español

A lo largo de las planicies costeras de México y detrás de los manglares, se extienden humedales de agua dulce alimentados por el flujo superficial de los ríos y el agua de escurrimiento de las sierras. Forman grandes extensiones principalmente en Veracruz, Tabasco y Chiapas y pueden ser de diferentes tipos, dependiendo sobre todo de su hidrología: en terrenos que permanecen inundados algunos meses al año se encuentran las selvas inundables, y en terrenos cubiertos por agua la mayor parte del año se encuentran humedales herbáceos (popales, tulares, carrizales). Debido a las diferencias en su composición de especies, en conjunto representan una alta diversidad biológica. Se establecen sobre suelos orgánicos que almacenan gran cantidad de agua y carbono, ayudando a reducir los picos de inundación, depurar el agua, y mitigar el cambio climático. Los datos de almacén de carbono y de almacenamiento de agua en el suelo, así como la capacidad para asimilar nutrientes y otros compuestos, muestra que sus servicios hidrológicos son de gran importancia para la sociedad. Gran parte de estos ecosistemas han sido transformados en distinto grado debido a las diferentes actividades económicas como la cría de ganado, la introducción de pastos forrajeros y, en el peor de los casos, su desecamiento para el desarrollo de las urbanizaciones. Además hay intereses conservacionistas. Algunos están regidos por la federación, otros por los estados y otros por los municipios.

Todo ello hace que su gobernanza sea muy compleja. A pesar de los esfuerzos y cambios paulatinos en el marco legal, el cual ha dado pie a la generación de algunos instrumentos que ayudan a su conservación como el cálculo de caudales ecológicos y los decretos de reservas de agua, así como la política de mitigación con base en captura de carbono, es necesario trabajar en el reconocimiento institucional para que estos ecosistemas tengan la importancia que merecen en las políticas públicas y en el sistema de conservación nacional.

Background: Reliable information about the spatial distribution of aboveground biomass (AGB) in tropical forests is fundamental for climate change mitigation and for maintaining carbon stocks. Recent AGB maps at continental and national scales have shown large uncertainties, particularly in tropical areas with high AGB values. Errors in AGB maps are linked to the quality of plot data used to calibrate remote sensing products, and the ability of radar data to map high AGB forest. Here we suggest an approach to improve the accuracy of AGB maps and test this approach with a case study of the tropical forests of the Yucatan peninsula, where the accuracy of AGB mapping is lower than other forest types in Mexico. To reduce the errors in field data, National Forest Inventory (NFI) plots were corrected to consider small trees. Temporal differences between NFI plots and imagery acquisition were addressed by considering biomass changes over time. To overcome issues related to saturation of radar backscatter, we incorporate radar texture metrics and climate data to improve the accuracy of AGB maps. Finally, we increased the number of sampling plots using biomass estimates derived from LiDAR data to assess if increasing sample size could improve the accuracy of AGB estimates.

Results: Correcting NFI plot data for both small trees and temporal differences between field and remotely sensed measurements reduced the relative error of biomass estimates by 12.2%. Using a machine learning algorithm, Random Forest, with corrected field plot data, backscatter and surface texture from the L‑band synthetic aperture radar (PALSAR) installed on the on the Advanced Land Observing Satellite‑1 (ALOS), and climatic water deficit data improved the accuracy of the maps obtained in this study as compared to previous studies (R²=0.44 vs R²= 0.32). However, using sample plots derived from LiDAR data to increase sample size did not improve accuracy of AGB maps (R²= 0.26). Conclusions: This study reveals that the suggested approach has the potential to improve AGB maps of tropical dry forests and shows predictors of AGB that should be considered in future studies. Our results highlight the importance of using ecological knowledge to correct errors associated with both the plot‑level biomass estimates and the mis‑match between field and remotely sensed data.

Premise: Domestication usually involves local adaptation to environmental conditions. Cucurbita species are a promising model for studying these processes. Cucurbita moschata is the third major crop in the genus because of its economic value and because it displays high landrace diversity, but research about its genetic diversity, population structure, and phylogeography is limited. We aimed at understanding how geography and elevation shape the distribution of genetic diversity in C. moschata landraces in Mexico. Methods: We sampled fruits from 24 localities throughout Mexico. We assessed 11 nuclear microsatellite loci, one mtDNA region, and three cpDNA regions but found no variation in cpDNA. We explored genetic structure with cluster analysis, and phylogeographic relationships with haplotype network analysis. Results: Mitochondrial genetic diversity was high, and nuclear genetic differentiation among localities was intermediate compared to other domesticated Cucurbita. We found high levels of inbreeding. We recovered two mitochondrial lineages: highland (associated with the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt) and lowland. Nuclear microsatellites show that localities from the Yucatan Peninsula constitute a well-differentiated group. Conclusions: Mexico is an area of high diversity for C. moschata, and these landraces represent important plant genetic resources. In Mexico this species is characterized by divergence processes linked to an elevational gradient, which could be related to adaptation and may be of value for applications in agriculture. The Isthmus of Tehuantepec may be a partial barrier to gene flow. Morphological variation, agricultural management, and cultural differences may be related to this pattern of genetic structure, but further studies are needed.

Large mammalian herbivores are experiencing population reductions and range declines. However, we lack regional knowledge of population status for many herbivores, particularly in developing countries. Addressing this knowledge gap is key to implementing tailored conservation strategies forspecies whose population declines are highly variable across their range. White-lipped peccaries (Tayassupecari) are important ecosystem engineers in Neotropical forests and are highly sensitive to human disturbance. Despite maintaining a wide distributional range, white-lipped peccaries are experiencing substantial population declines in some portions of their range.We examined the regional distribution and population status of the species in Mesoamerica. We used a combination of techniques, including expert-based mapping and assessment of population status, and data-driven distribution modelling techniques to determine the status and range limits of white-lipped peccaries. Our analysis revealed declining and highly isolated populations of peccaries across Mesoamerica, with a range reduction of 87% from historic distribution and 63% from current IUCN range estimates for the region. White-lipped peccary distribution is affected by indices of human influence and forest cover, and more restricted than other sympatric large herbivores, with their largest populations confined to transboundary reserves. To conserve white-lipped peccaries in Mesoamerica, transboundary efforts will be needed that focus on both forest conservation and hunting management, increased cross-border coordination, and reconsideration of country and regional conservation priorities. Our methodology to detail regional white-lipped peccary status could be employed on other poorly-known large mammals.

Resumen en inglés

Old-growth tropical forests harbor an immense diversity of tree species but are rapidly being cleared, while secondary forests that regrow on abandoned agricultural lands increase in extent. We assess how tree species richness and composition recover during secondary succession across gradients in environmental conditions and anthropogenic disturbance in an unprecedented multisite analysis for the Neotropics. Secondary forests recover remarkably fast in species richness but slowly in species composition. Secondary forests take a median time of five decades to recover the species richness of old-growth forest (80% recovery after 20 years) based on rarefaction analysis. Full recovery of species composition takes centuries (only 34% recovery after 20 years). A dual strategy that maintains both old-growth forests and species-rich secondary forests is therefore crucial for biodiversity conservation in human-modified tropical landscapes.

Resumen en inglés

Knowledge of the spatial distribution of aboveground biomass (AGB) is crucial to guide forest conservation and management to maintain carbon stocks. LiDAR has been highly successful for this purpose, but has limited availability. Very-high resolution (<1 m) orthophotos can also be used to estimate AGB because they allow a fine distinction of forest canopy grain. We evaluated the separate and joint performance of orthophotos and LiDAR data to estimate AGB in two types of tropical dry forests in the Yucatan Peninsula. Woody plants were surveyed in twenty 0.1 ha plots in a semideciduous forest at Kaxil Kiuic Biocultural Reserve (RBKK) and 28 plots in a semievergreen forest at Felipe Carrillo Puerto (FCP). We fitted three regression models: one based on LiDAR data, another based on orthophoto variables calculated for forest canopy and canopy opening fractions, and a third model that combined both sets of variables. Variation in AGB was decomposed into LiDAR, orthophotos and joint components using variation-partitioning analyses. In FCP, regression models using LiDAR data only showed higher fit (R2 = 0.82) than orthophoto variables only (R² = 0.70). In contrast, orthophotos had a slightly higher fit (R² = 0.91) than LiDAR (R2 = 0.88) in RBKK, because orthophoto variables characterize very well the horizontal structure of canopies on this site. The model that combined both data sets showed a better fit (R2 = 0.85) only in FCP, which has a more complex forest structure. The largest percentage of AGB variation (88 per cent in RBKK and 67 per cent in FCP) was explained by the joint contribution of LiDAR and orthophotos. We conclude that both LiDAR and orthophotos provide accurate estimation of AGB, but their relative performance varies with forest type and structural complexity. Combining the two sets of variables can further improve the accuracy of AGB estimation, particularly in forests with complex vegeta
