Wheat fields as an ecological trap for reptiles in a semiarid agroecosystem
Intensive agricultural activity over large areas on earth, which is necessary to meet the increasing demand of a growing human population, may lead to biodiversity loss. This loss may be mitigated by keeping natural and semi-natural patches within agricultural fields to allow the maintenance of biological diversity (‘Wildlife Friendly Agriculture’).
The Effect of Anthropogenic Resources on the Space-Use Patterns of Golden Jackals
We studied the influence of agricultural villages on space-use patterns of golden jackals (Canis aureus Linnaeus) in the Mediterranean region of Israel.
Agricultural heterogeneity as effective tool to keep spatial connectivity
In a previous research we showed that wheat fields served as an ecological trap for individuals of a reptile species -- Trachylepis vittata – that move one-directionally, from natural patches to wheat fields, to their death. We extended this research to compare movements of individuals between pea and wheat fields, which commonly rotate at our study area.
