  1. pmc Lynx body size in Norway is related to its main prey (Roe deer) density, climate, and latitude
    Yoram Yom-Tov
    Department of Zoology, Tel Aviv University, Israel
    Ambio 40:43-51. 2011
    ..We interpret the effects of NAO and latitude on body size through their effect on the local climate and particularly snow conditions. We suggest that females are more sensitive to environmental factors than males...
  2. pmc Global warming and body mass decline in Israeli passerine birds
    Y Yom-Tov
    Department of Zoology, Tel Aviv University, Israel
    Proc Biol Sci 268:947-52. 2001
    ..These declines may have serious implications for community structure and competition among bird species and may affect the survival of small passerines...

    Yoram Yom-Tov
    Department of Zoology, Tel Aviv University, 69978, Tel Aviv, Israel
    Oecologia 148:213-8. 2006
    ..Hence, the observed positive relationships between average minimum January temperature and body size in four of the six species influenced by rain further support this conclusion...

    Oecologia 150:155-60. 2006
    ..Birth year and death year explained 38.8 and 43.5%, respectively, of the variation in body size. Body size of otters was positively related to latitude, thus conforming to Bergmann's rule...

    Zoology Department, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv 69978, Israel
    Oecologia 152:239-44. 2007

    Eran Levin
    Department of Zoology, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel
    Naturwissenschaften 96:477-83. 2009
