Biochar is a high carbon material resulting from biomass pyrolysis that, when applied to croplands, can increase soil carbon and soil water retention. Both effects are of critical importance in semi-arid regions, where carbon decline and desertification are the main drivers of soil degradation. [...]

71.9 KB Contemporary evolution of an invasive plant is associated with climate but not with herbivory. / Castells, Eva (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Farmacologia, de Terapèutica i de Toxicologia) ; Colomer Ventura, Ferran (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Martínez Vilalta, Jordi, 1975- (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Departament de Farmacologia, de Terapèutica i de Toxicologia) ; Armengot, Laura (Universitat de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Vegetal)
Divergence in plant traits and trait plasticity after invasion has been proposed as mechanisms favouring invasion success. Current hypotheses predict a rapid evolution in response to changes in the abiotic conditions in the area of introduction or to differences in the herbivore consumption pressure caused by a decrease in the enemies associated with the area of origin [e.

1 p, 838.9 KB Rapid plant evolution in response to climate, but not herbivory / Castells, Eva (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Farmacologia, de Terapèutica i de Toxicologia) ; Colomer Ventura, Ferran
Divergence in plant traits and trait plasticity after invasion has been proposed as an important mechanism favouring invasion success. Current hypotheses predict a rapid evolution in response to changes in the herbivore consumption pressure caused by a decrease in the enemies associated at the area of origin (e. [...]

39 p, 3.5 MB Invasive populations of Senecio pterophorus are neither more productive nor more plastic than the native populations / Colomer Ventura, Ferran ; Castells, Eva ; Martínez Vilalta, Jordi, 1975- (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia)
Successful plant invaders may have specific morphological and physiological traits that promote invasion in a new habitat. The Evolution of Increased Competitive Ability (EICA) hypothesis predicts that plants released from natural enemies in the introduced habitats are more competitive and perform better than plants from the native populations.

10 p, 765.2 KB Proxies de temperatura i pluviositat per a la reconstrucció climàtica a la Península Ibèrica / Colomer Ventura, Ferran ; Rosell Melé, Antoni (Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Facultat de Ciències
Amb la finalitat d'avaluar els lípids alquilats com a proxies de precipitació i temperatura a la Península Ibèrica, s'han analitzat 23 mostres de sòls de diferents punts del territori espanyol. L'estudi d'aquests biomarcadors cuticulars s'ha fet a través de la identificació i quantificació del seu contingut a les mostres, el càlcul de diversos paràmetres com l'índex de preferència de carboni (CPI), la longitud mitjana de cadena (ACL) o la pèrdua de matèria orgànica per ignició (LOI), i la recerca de correlacions estadístiques entre les variables climàtiques dels punts de mostreig i els resultats obtinguts.

In order to evaluate the alkyl lipids as proxies for temperature and precipitation in the Iberian Peninsula 23 soil samples were analyzed from different parts of Spain. The study of these cuticular biomarkers was done through the identification and quantification of content in the samples, the calculation of various parameters such as carbon preference index (CPI), average chain length (ACL) or the loss of organic matter by ignition (LOI), and the search for statistical correlations between climatic variables of sampling locations and the results.
