9 p, 111.3 KB Urban geography and the production of socio-environmental inequalities / Parés i Franzi, Marc (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Geografia)
In this article we use the Urban Political Ecology approach to show that by analysing governance networks we can better understand the production of certain socio-environmental transformations that negatively affect some social groups while benefiting others. [...]

31 p, 434.2 KB A Review on Water-Energy Nexus and Directions for Future Studies : From Supply to Demand End / Yoon, Hyerim (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)
The intrinsic links between water and energy have produced a new concept known as water-energy nexus (WEN), which has been increasingly studied by scholars and global institutions since the 1990s. This paper provides a review of water-energy nexus studies in an interdisciplinary manner starting from two major approaches—water for energy and energy for water—which focus principally on quantitative studies, but also on policy and institutional dimensions. [...]

Understanding the dynamics of urban ecosystem services is a necessary requirement for adequate planning, management, and governance of urban green infrastructure. Through the three-year Urban Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (URBES) research project, we conducted case study and comparative research on urban biodiversity and ecosystem services across seven cities in Europe and the United States.

15 p, 320.2 KB Mirando detrás de las percepciones de la naturaleza, el territorio, lo urbano y lo rural : el caso de Cuenca, Ecuador / Malo Larrea, Antonio (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
La forma en la que se problematiza el mundo real, se ve reflejada en los discursos sociales que existen en una sociedad. Este trabajo estudia los discursos sobre la naturaleza, el territorio y lo rural en Cuenca, Ecuador. [...]
This work critically explores the construction of ideas about nature and territory, contrasting them with the Andean indigenous paradigm of Sumak Kawsay. Included in the 2008 Ecuadorian Constitution, Sumak Kawsay and the rights of nature were then transformed into national public policies. [...]

Recent scholarship on the materiality of cities has been criticized by critical urban scholars for being overly descriptive and failing to account for political economy. We argue that through the conceptualization of urban metabolisms advanced by ecological economists and industrial ecologists, materialist and critical perspectives can be mutually enriching. [...]

8 p, 752.8 KB Environmental variation and the evolution of large brains in birds / Sayol i Altarriba, Ferran (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Maspons, Joan (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Lapiedra i González, Oriol (Harvard University.

Department of Biology and Biochemistry) ; Sol, Daniel (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals)
Environmental variability has long been postulated as a major selective force in the evolution of large brains. However, assembling evidence for this hypothesis has proved difficult. Here, by combining brain size information for over 1,200 bird species with remote-sensing analyses a to estimate temporal variation in ecosystem productivity, we show that larger brains (relative to body size) are more likely to occur in species exposed to larger environmental variation throughout their geographic range. [...]
