Social-ecological systems in the Mediterranean Basin are characterised by high biodiversity and a prolonged cultural influence, leading to the co-evolution of these systems. The unique characteristics of Mediterranean social-ecological systems, current pressures leading to a decline in ecosystem services, and the need for coordinated action are recognised by policies promoting the protection and sustainable use of the region’s heritage.

Metabolic impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems : Implications for fish communities and fisheries / Carozza, David A. (McGill University. Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences) ; Bianchi, Daniele (University of California. Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences) ; Galbraith, Eric D. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Aim:Climate change will reshape marine ecosystems over the 21st century through diverse and complex mechanisms that are difficult to assess quantitatively. Here, we characterize expectations for how marine community biomass will respond to the energetic consequences of changes in primary production and temperature‐dependent metabolic rates, under a range of fishing/conservation scenarios.

Departament de Pedagogia Sistemàtica i Social) ; Úcar, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Pedagogia Sistemàtica i Social)
Frente al cambio ambiental global, las ciencias sociales aplicadas afrontan el desafío de mejorar y aumentar la comprensión del problema y así contribuir a generar acciones efectivas. Desde la dimensión contextual, epistemológica, teórica y ética del concepto de intervención social, este artículo plantea propuestas teóricas que nutran los procesos reflexivos a la hora de diseñar y ejecutar intervenciones sociales relacionadas con problemáticas socioambientales.

Obra ressenyada: Randall S. ABATE (ed. ), Climate justice : case studies in global and regional governance challenges. Washington: Environmental Law Institute, 2016.
El cambio climático constituye un problema grave de índole planetaria dado que afecta a todos los componentes de la Tierra, incluida la humanidad. Esta obra abarca las dificultades patentes a la hora de garantizar la existencia de la justicia climática dada  la heterogeneidad de recursos disponibles y la anteposición de los intereses de unos países respecto a los de otros.
Climate change is a serious global issue, as it affects all components of the Earth, including humanity. This book deals with the obvious difficulties at the time of guaranteeing the existence of climate justice, given the heterogeneity of the availability of resources, and the prioritisation of the interests of certain countries regarding those of others.

The increase in aridity, mainly by decreases in precipitation but also by higher temperatures, is likely the main threat to the diversity and survival of Mediterranean forests. Changes in land use, including the abandonment of extensive crop activities, mainly in mountains and remote areas, and the increases in human settlements and demand for more resources with the resulting fragmentation of the landscape, hinder the establishment of appropriate management tools to protect Mediterranean forests and their provision of services and biodiversity.

Aquesta tesi vol contribuir a comprendre millor els sistemes socioecològics i el seu canvi al llarg del temps des d'un punt de vista holístic i relacional. Pretén mostrar que les activitats productives del camp no són necessàriament incompatibles amb la conservació de la biodiversitat, i que algunes d'aquestes activitats, fins i tot en situacions d'integració en economies de mercat, són indispensables per conservar els paisatges culturals que les societats urbanes modernes volen protegir. [...]
This thesis is aimed to better understanding the coupled social-ecological systems and their change over time in a holistic and relational way. It intends to show that productive rural activities are not necessarily incompatible with conservation of biodiversity, and that some of these activities, even when they are quite integrated with market economies, are indispensable to conserve the cultural landscapes that modern urban societies want to protect.

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. [...]
