Mesoamerica, often called Middle America, is one of the world’s major biodiversity hotspots. The herpetofauna of this region consists of approximately 1,900 species, of which about 1,000 are endemic to specific countries. Conservation of Mesoamerican Amphibians and Reptiles (CMAR) represents the most comprehensive compilation of conservation-related herpetological contributions ever assembled for Mesoamerica. This volume will serve as a valuable reference for most future conservation work in this region. Nearly four years in the making, CMAR contains a complete conservation assessment of the herpetofauna of this megadiverse region, in addition to distributional analyses from the perspectives of country, physiographic region, elevation, and vegetation zone. The database and wealth of information included in this work are unprecedented in the field of conservation biology. Chapters on herpetofaunal conservation are featured for each of the Mesoamerican countries, with Mexico divided into four regions. Other feature chapters include such topics as the Global Amphibian Assessment, recent taxonomic changes, herpetofaunal distribution patterns, and a closing chapter examining the biodiversity significance, conservation status, and future challenges we face in attempting to save the entire Mesoamerican herpetofauna. Several ancillary chapters on a host of conservation issues also are included.

The systematics of the Mesoamerican herpetofauna is discussed and brought up to date, highlighted with extensive commentary on current taxonomic problems. An addendum provides a summary of recent taxonomic publications. This volume contains something for everyone with a serious interest in herpetology, conservation biology, zoo biology, or those involved with governmental policy structure regarding conservation and/or environmental problems. Perhaps more importantly, this book will serve as a source of inspiration for future research projects, especially for biologists and conservationists who seek to salvage as much of the spectacular diversity and endemicity of Mesoamerica as possible. A book for every serious herpetologist, onservationist,conservation organization, and zoological institution.

This book provides a synopsis of existing information on raptors in México. Studies on the ecology, biology, taxonomy and systematics of raptors (Falconiformes and Strigiformes) are presented throughout the different chapters of the book. This work also presents an analysis of habitats and type of ecosystems where raptor studies are currently performed. Special attention was paid to display the strengths and weaknesses in knowledge of endemic, protected under Mexican law, rare, and sensitive species, and remarking specific challenges. The lack of studies in the most relevant ecosystems for raptors in México is also made evident and discussed. This compiling current work is the first on Mexican raptors, which attempts to promote, stimulate and encourage more studies on this remarkable group of top predator birds as indicators of habitar qualiry and functional biological systems. Ricardo Rodríguez-Estrella. an ecologist who has worked on raptors for che last 20 years, has mainly studied the effects of human activities on their ecology and conservation. His research focuses on basic animal ecology, landscape ecology and biodiversity conservation through spatial analysis. He has been part of the Board of Directors of the Raptor Research Foundation and a member of the Academia Mexicana de Ciencias.

The PREDICTS project-Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems (www.predicts.org.uk)-has collated from published studies a large, reasonably representative database of comparable samples of biodiversity from multiple sites that differ in the nature or intensity of human impacts relating to land use. We have used this evidence base to develop global and regional statistical models of how local biodiversity responds to these measures. We describe and make freely available this 2016 release of the database, containing more than 3.2 million records sampled at over 26,000 locations and representing over 47,000 species. We outline how the database can help in answering a range of questions in ecology and conservation biology. To our knowledge, this is the largest and most geographically and taxonomically representative database of spatial comparisons of biodiversity that has been collated to date; it will be useful to researchers and international efforts wishing to model and understand the global status of biodiversity.

Resumen en inglés

The comprehensive instructional and reference volume on fisheries sampling and analysis techniques. This new edition describes the techniques and approaches used to collect and analyze fisheries samples and data, with a greater emphasis on quantitative techniques and estuarine and marine systems. Most chapters have been rewritten and all have been updated to include recent technological, analytical, and philosophical advances. A comprehensive glossary of terms is included. The book is intended for practicing fisheries professionals, researchers, professors, and advanced undergraduate and graduate students.
