Data from: Land use change through the lens of macroecology: insights from Azorean arthropods and the Maximum Entropy Theory of Ecology

Micah Brush, Tom Matthews, Paulo Borges & John Harte
Abstract from Brush et al. (2022) Ecography: Human activity and land management practices, in particular land use change, have resulted in the global loss of biodiversity. These types of disturbance affect the shape of macroecological patterns, and therefore analyzing these patterns can provide insights into how ecosystems are affected by land use change. We here use arthropod census data from 96 sites at Terceira Island in the Azores archipelago across four different land uses of...

Exposure to whale watching vessels affects dive ascents and resting behavior in sperm whales

Cláudia Oliveira, Sergi Pérez-Jorge, Rui Prieto, Irma Cascão, Paul J. Wensveen & Mónica A Silva
Movement and acoustic data obtained from multi-sensor biologging devices are fundamental to assess the behavior of marine megafauna and also their responses to anthropogenic activities. We joined movement and acoustic data on 24 sperm whales instrumented with DTAGs, between 2017 and 2019 in the Azores archipelago, Portugal. Data were filtered to remove: a) the first foraging dive cycle or 1-hour of non-foraging period after tagging; b) periods that might be affected by the presence of...

Plate boundary deformation at the Azores triple junction determined from continuous GPS geodetic measurements, 2000-2017

João D'Araújo, Freysteinn Sigmundsson, Teresa Ferreira, Jun Okada, Maria Lorenzo & Rita Silva
Ground deformation in the Azores, at the triple junction between the Eurasian, Nubian, and North American plates, has been mapped with continuous GPS (Global Positioning System) geodetic measurements to improve tectonic motion estimates and for understanding volcanic unrest. We compute daily GPS positions, spanning almost 17 years (2000-2017), from 18 continuous GPS stations. The GPS time-series are analyzed by searching for discontinuities and periodic functions. Results show that Flores and Graciosa islands have displacements close...

Spider species collected in Macaronesian islands using COBRA sampling protocols

Jagoba Malumbres-Olarte
Aim: Habitat diversity has been linked to the diversity and structure of island communities, however, little is known about patterns and processes within habitats. Here we aim to determine the contributions of habitat type and inferred dispersal frequency to the differences in taxonomic structure between assemblages in the same island habitat. Location: The Macaronesian archipelagos (Azores, Madeira, the Canary Islands and Cabo Verde). Taxon: Spiders (Araneae). Methods: We established forest and dry habitat sites (each...
