172 p, 4.4 MB Global change and the uncertain future of biodiversity in Mediterranean-type ecosystems : insights from a strategic foresight process / Regos Sanz, Adrián ; Brotons, Lluís, dir. (Centre de Recerca en Ecologia i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Retana Alumbreros, Javier, dir. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals
La conservación requiere una previsión estratégica que permita abordar con eficacia los retos actuales que plantea el cambio global. La cuenca Mediterránea ha sido identificada como área prioritaria para la conservación, particularmente vulnerable al efecto combinado del cambio climático, el cambio de los usos del suelo y el régimen de perturbaciones por incendios forestales. [...]
Conservation needs strategic foresight leading to effectively address the ongoing challenges posed by global change. Mediterranean Basin has been identified as priority area for conservation, particularly vulnerable to the combined effects of climate change, land-use change and fire disturbance regime. [...]

196 p, 3.1 MB Nitrogen deposition at Mediterranean holm-oak forests : loads and indicators / Aguillaume Rodríguez-O'connor, Laura ; Ávila i Castells, Anna, dir. ; Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals
En esta tesis presentamos información sobre la deposición de N en los bosques de encinar (Quercus ilex) en España para contribuir a mejorar la falta de estudios sobre el depósito de N en la cuenca del Mediterráneo. [...]
With the present PhD we provide new information on N deposition to holm oak (Quercus ilex) forests in Spain, in order to contribute to fill the gap about N deposition in the Mediterranean Basin. Three forest sites were selected for their proximity to traffic/urban pollution sources and a fourth site was chosen as representative of less polluted environments. [...]

124 p, 2.9 MB Context dependency in acorn predation and dispersal by Apodemus sylvaticus in Mediterranean oak forests: the role of seasonality, spatial heterogeneity and animal-animal interactions / Sunyer Sala, Pau ; Espelta Morral, Josep Maria (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Muñoz Muñoz, Alberto, dir. (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals
La biodiversitat que observem resulta d'una complexa història evolutiva d'interaccions entre els organismes. Les interaccions planta-animal en son un cas paradigmàtic, des de relacions antagòniques a mutualistes, però determinar-ne el resultat pot ser complicat, com en el cas de la dispersió de llavors per rosegadors. [...]
Earth's biodiversity results from a complex evolutionary history of interactions among organisms. Plant-animal interactions are a paradigmatic example of such ecological relationships, from antagonistic to mutualistic relationships, although determining its result might be difficult, like in the case of seed dispersal by rodents.

129 p, 3.7 MB Effects of drought-induced forest die-off and species replacement on soil CO2 effluxes / Barba Ferrer, Josep ; Lloret Maya, Francisco, dir. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Curiel Yuste, Jorge, dir. ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals
L'increment en la freqüència i la intensitat de les sequeres en les últimes dècades s'ha considerat responsable de molts episodis de mortalitat forestal a nivell global, particularment a la regió mediterrània. [...]
The increase in frequency and intensity of drought events during the last decades has been considered responsible for the widespread forest mortality events observed abroad and particularly in the Mediterranean Basin. [...]

144 p, 3.0 MB The assembly and disassembly of ecological networks in a changing world / Lurgi Rivera, Miguel ; Montoya Terán, José M., dir. ; Claramunt López, Bernat, dir. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals
El ensamblaje, estructuración y funcionamiento de las comunidades naturales, compuestas de muchas especies que forman redes complejas de interacciones ecológicas, ha desconcertado a los ecólogos durante muchas generaciones. [...]
The assembly, structuring and functioning of natural communities, composed of many species forming complex networks of ecological interactions, has puzzled ecologists for many generations. Early ecological research determined that community size and complexity (measured as connectivity in the network of ecological interactions) limit community stability, and hence impose constraints to communities to become indefinitely complex or speciose.

270 p, 8.7 MB Biochar effects on soil quality as evaluated by physical, chemical, and biological parameters / Netherton Marks, Evan Alexander ; Domene, X., (Xavier), dir. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals
El biochar es un producto resultante de la descomposición térmica mediante pirolisis de biomasa y aplicado al suelo para mejorar sus propiedades. Este area de investigación está auge actualmente por su papel en mejorar la práctica agrícola y como estrategia de secuestro de carbono en suelo. [...]
Biochar is thermally-decomposed biomass deliberately applied to soil to improve its properties. In recent years, biochar research has grown immensely for its potential role in improving agricultural practices and as a strategy to sequester carbon in the soil. [...]

159 p, 1.7 MB Behavioral changes, ecological niches and adaptive diversification in pigeons and doves / Lapiedra i González, Oriol ; Sol, Daniel, dir. (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals
L'extraordinària diversitat de l'ecologia, morfologia, comportament, i la riquesa d'espècies en tot l'arbre de la vida ha interessat els investigadors des de fa molt de temps. No obstant, entendre com i per què els llinatges es diversifiquen en el seu fenotip i en nombre d'espècies segueix sent un repte important en biología evolutiva. [...]
The extraordinary diversity of ecology, morphology, behavior, and species richness across the tree of life has long interested researchers. Understanding why and how lineages diversify in phenotype and species numbers remains, however, a major challenge in evolutionary biology because evolutionary diversification is a complex process influenced by a number of factors of diverse nature.

30 p, 3.9 MB Effects of increased drought and selective thinning on growth and resprouting of two coexisting Mediterranean oaks with contrasting leaf habit (Quercus ilex and Quercus cerrioides) / Cotillas de la Torre, Miriam ; Espelta Morral, Josep Maria (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Sabaté i Jorba, Santi, dir. (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
According to the IPCC (2007), the Mediterranean basin is expected to suffer important changes in temperature and precipitation in the next few decades, leading the climate warmer and dryer. Therefore, it is necessary to determine the possible effects of increased drought on species with different structural and physiological traits, to be able to predict possible changes in the structure and composition of Mediterranean forests.
