Dolores (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Peñuelas, Josep (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals)
Paddy fields are a major global anthropogenic source of greenhouse gases. China has the second largest area under rice cultivation, so determining the relationships between the emission of greenhouse gases and soil carbon content, nutrient availabilities and concentrations and physical properties is crucial for minimizing the climatic impacts of rice agriculture.

Climate warming can lead to changes in alpine plant species interactions through modifications in environmental conditions, which may ultimately cause drastic changes in plant communities. We explored the effects of 4 years of experimental warming with open-top chambers (OTC) on Vaccinium myrtillus performance and its interaction with neighbouring shrubs at the Pyrenean treeline ecotone.

Spatial patterns and temporal trends of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) deposition are important for quantifying their impact on forest carbon (C) uptake. In a first step, we modeled historical and future change in the global distributions of the atmospheric deposition of N and P from the dry and wet deposition of aerosols and gases containing N and P.

Physiological adjustments of a Mediterranean shrub to long-term experimental warming and drought treatments / Liu, Daijun (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Llusià Benet, Joan (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Ogaya Inurrigarro, Romà (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i d'Aplicacions Forestals Forestals) ; Estiarte, Marc (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Llorens, Laura (Universitat de Girona.

Key Laboratory of Horticulture Science for Southern Mountainous Regions) ; Peñuelas, Josep (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals)
Warmer temperatures and extended drought in the Mediterranean Basin are becoming increasingly important in determining plant physiological processes and affecting the regional carbon budget. The responses of plant physiological variables such as shoot water potential (Ψ), carbon-assimilation rates (A), stomatal conductance (gs) and intrinsic water-use efficiency (iWUE) to these climatic regimes, however, are not well understood.

Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia)
The application of phosphorus (P) fertilizer to agricultural soils increased by 3. 2 % annually from 2002 to 2010. We quantified in detail the P inputs and outputs of cropland and pasture, and the P fluxes through human and livestock consumers of agricultural products, at global, regional, and national scales from 2002 to 2010.

(Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia)
Manipulative experiments and observations along environmental gradients, the two most common approaches to evaluate the impacts of climate change on nutrient cycling, are generally assumed to produce similar results, but this assumption has rarely been tested. [...]

Tropical insect diversity : evidence of greater host specialization in seed-feeding weevils / Peguero Gutiérrez, Guillermo (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Bonal, Raúl (Instituto de Investigación de la Dehesa) ; Sol, Daniel (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Muñoz Muñoz, Alberto (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Sork, Victoria L. (University of California. Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology) ; Espelta Morral, Josep Maria (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals)
Host specialization has long been hypothesized to explain the extraordinary diversity of phytophagous insects in the tropics. However, addressing this hypothesis has proved challenging because of the risk of over-looking rare interactions, and hence biasing specialization estimations, and the difficulties to separate the diversity component attributable to insect specialization from that related to host diversity.
