Regional controls on geomorphology, hydrology, and ecosystem integrity in the Orinoco Delta, Venezuela
Interacting river discharge, tidal oscillation, and tropical rainfall across the 22,000 km2 Orinoco delta plain support diverse fresh and brackish water ecosystems. To develop environmental baseline information for this largely unpopulated region, we evaluate major coastal plain, shallow marine, and river systems of northeastern South America, which serves to identify principal sources and controls of water and sediment flow into, through, and out of the Orinoco Delta. The regional analysis includes a summary of the geology, hydrodynamics, sediment dynamics, and geomorphic characteristics of the Orinoco drainage basin, river, and delta system. Because the Amazon River is a major source of sediment deposited along...
Allozymic genetic structure and natural habitat fragmentation: Data for five species of Amazonian forest birds
The Global Human Footprint Dataset of the Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2) is the Human Influence Index (HII) normalized by biome and realm. The HII is a global dataset of 1-kilometer grid cells, created from nine global data layers covering human population pressure (population density), human land use and infrastructure (built-up areas, nighttime lights, land use/land cover), and human access (coastlines, roads, railroads, navigable rivers). The dataset is produced by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN). The Human Footprint Index (HF) expressses as a percentagethe relative human influence in each...
Amazon Biome sensu WWFThe Amazon Biome is roughly equivalent of the (usually called) Amazon Rainforest (Floresta Amazônica or Amazônia, in Portuguese and Selva Amazónica o Amazonía in Spanish)The Amazon Biome is mainly a moist broadleaf forest but can also include other vegetation physiognomies like swamp forests and flooded forest, savannas, grasslands and bamboo mixed forests among others.
