El Instituto de Ciencia y Tecnología Ambientales de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (ICTA-UAB) es un centro multidisciplinar que promueve la investigación académica y los estudios de posgrado en ciencias ambientales. Su objetivo es mejorar la comprensión del cambio ambiental global y la naturaleza y las causas de los problemas ambientales. Estudia las políticas, estrategias y tecnologías para favorecer la transición a un modelo social y económico sostenible.

El ICTA-UAB aborda los principales retos ambientales y de sostenibilidad relacionados con el cambio global y climático antropogénico. Los investigadores del ICTA-UAB desarrollan investigación avanzada en áreas específicas de la ciencia ambiental a partir de tres áreas generales: “Ciencias de la Tierra y la Vida”, “Ciencias Sociales y Ambientales” y “Tecnología, medio ambiente y sociedad”.

Unidad de Excelencia María de Maeztu El ICTA-UAB es el único centro de investigación en ciencias ambientales distinguido como Unidad de Excelencia por el Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad (MINECO) del Gobierno de España, el más destacado reconocimiento en investigación científica en España.

The recent phenomenon of large-scale land acquisitions (LSLAs) is associated with what has been described as a global agrarian transition. New forms of land exploitation and concentration have led to profound socio-environmental transformations of rural production systems in Latin America, South-East Asia and Sub Saharan Africa. [...]

11 p, 569.5 KB Regulation strength and technology creep play key roles in global long-term projections of wild capture fisheries / Scherrer, Kim J. N. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Galbraith, Eric (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Many studies have shown that the global fish catch can only be sustained with effective regulation that restrains overfishing. However, the persistence of weak or ineffective regulation in many parts of the world, coupled with changing technologies and additional stressors like climate change, renders the future of global catches uncertain.

10 p, 1.1 MB Bioenergetic influence on the historical development and decline of industrial fisheries / Guiet, Jérôme (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Cheung, W. W. L. (University of British Columbia. Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries (Canada))
The global wild capture fishery expanded rapidly over the 20th century as fishing technology improved, peaking in the 1990s as most fisheries transitioned to fully- or over-exploited status. Historical records for individual large marine ecosystems (LMEs) tend to echo this same progression, but with local variations in the timing and abruptness of catch peaks. [...]
