11 p, 324.8 KB El rol de las Áreas Naturales Periurbanas para la Resiliencia al Cambio Climático de las Metrópolis : el Caso de la Ciudad de México / Calderón Contreras, Rafael (Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana (Mèxic))
La metropolización es una característica dominante de los procesos de crecimiento urbano a nivel mundial. Asimismo, uno de los principales problemas que enfrentan las metrópolis es el cambio climático. [...]
Metropolization is a dominant feature of the processes of urban growth worldwide. Furthermore, one of the main problems faced by the metropolis is climate change. In order to characterize the adaptation to climate change in the metropolis, recent literature has used the concept of resilience as a theoretical framework to understand the way in which a city is constituted as a Socio-Ecological System with the capability and the ability to resist the onslaught of climate change. [...]

21 p, 299.6 KB Estratègies territorials en el sector dels transports per fer front al canvi climàtic / Miralles-Guasch, Carme, 1961- (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Geografia)
Les senyals del canvi climàtic són cada vegada més evidents i les seves magnituds molt més preocupants a mesura que es calculen les variables afectades. Les emissions de CO2 a l’atmosfera en són la causa principal i el sector del transport una de les fonts substancials d’aquestes emissions, principalment els mitjans de transport privat, en ser els grans consumidors d’energies fòssils. [...]
Las señales del cambio climático son cada vez más evidentes y sus magnitudes mucho más preocupantes, a medida que se calculan las variables afectadas. Las emisiones de CO2 a la atmósfera son la causa principal y el sector de los transportes una de las fuentes sustanciales de estas emisiones, básicamente los medios de transporte privados, al ser los grandes consumidores de energías fósiles.

Signs of climatic change are becoming more and more evident and the magnitude of these signs a growing cause for concern as the affected variables are quantified. CO2 emissions are the principal cause of climatic change and the transport sector one of the main sources of these emissions, particularly private vehicles which account for most of the fossil fuels burned.

20 p, 355.9 KB From the «Resilient City» to Urban Resilience : a review essay on understanding and integrating the resilience perspective for urban systems / Chelleri, Lorenzo (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Geografia)
Resilience appears to have become a buzz word since the ecological, psychological, social and economic sciences began to use it to refer, respectively, to the capacity of ecosystems, people, societies, the economy, and more recently even urban systems to cope with disturbance. [...]
El concepte de resiliència sembla que actualment ha perdut significat. La banalització del concepte es deu, potser, a la proliferació del seu denominador comú o «capacitat de fer front a les pertorbacions» en moltes disciplines diferents. [...]
El concepto de resiliencia parece haber perdido significado en la actualidad. La banalización del concepto se debe quizás a su proliferación de su denominador común o «la capacidad de hacer frente a las perturbaciones» en muchas disciplinas diferentes. [...]
La large utilisation du terme résilience semble avoir mené à une perte de sens. Ce mot est en-effet utilisé indifféremment pour qualifier une propriété des écosystèmes, ou des sociétés et de leurs économies à faire face et se rétablir suite à des perturbations. [...]

13 p, 372.3 KB Warming and drought alter C and N concentration, allocation and accumulation in a Mediterranean shrubland / Sardans i Galobart, Jordi (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Peñuelas, Josep (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Estiarte, Marc (Centre de Recerca Ecologica i Aplicacions Forestals. Ecophysiology and Global Change Unit) ; Prieto, Patricia (Centre de Recerca Ecologica i Aplicacions Forestals. Ecophysiology and Global Change Unit)
We investigated the effects of warming and drought on C and N concentrations, nitrogen use efficiency (NUE), and C and N accumulation in different ecosystem compartments. We conducted a 6-year (1999–2005) field experiment to simulate the climate conditions projected by IPCC models for the coming decades in a Mediterranean shrubland. [...]
