Archetypes are increasingly used as a methodological approach to understand recurrent patterns in variables and processes that shape the sustainability of social-ecological systems. The rapid growth and diversification of archetype analyses has generated variations, inconsistencies, and confusion about the meanings, potential, and limitations of archetypes. [...]

14 p, 141.4 KB Beyond proximate and distal causes of land-use change : Linking individual motivations to deforestation in rural contexts / Rueda, Ximena (Universidad de los Andes. School of Management (Colombia)) ; Vélez, Maria Alejandra (Universidad de los Andes. School of Management (Colombia)) ; Moros, Lina (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Rodríguez, Luz Angela (Pontificia Universidad Javeriana. School of Environmental and Rural Studies (Colombia))
Most of the literature on the causes of tropical deforestation has focused on the proximate and distal causes. However, research exploring the psychological drivers of deforestation, i. e. , motivations, is still scant despite being crucial to understand the processes of land-use change and individual decision making within social-ecological systems.

Centre for Development and Environment (Switzerland )) ; Roggero, Matteo (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Germany)) ; Sietz, Diana (Wageningen University (The Netherlands))
A key challenge in addressing the global degradation of natural resources and the environment is to effectively transfer successful strategies across heterogeneous contexts. Archetype analysis is a particularly salient approach in this regard that helps researchers to understand and compare patterns of (un)sustainability in heterogeneous cases. [...]

14 p, 3.7 MB Unraveling complex relations between forest-cover change and conflicts through spatial and relational analyses / Pérez Llorente, Irene (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.

Centro de Investigaciones en Geografía Ambiental) ; Paneque Gálvez, Jaime (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. Centro de Investigaciones en Geografía Ambiental) ; Orozco, Claudio Garibay (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. Centro de Investigaciones en Geografía Ambiental) ; González López, Rafael (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Despite the increasing prevalence of forest-cover change and conflicts, most studies have been unable to unravel the complex relations between the two processes. We attribute this failure to methodological limitations. [...]

11 p, 725.5 KB Mid-term effects on ecosystem services of quarry restoration with Technosols under Mediterranean conditions : 10-year impacts on soil organic carbon and vegetation development / Carabassa, Vicenç (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Alcañiz, Josep M.

(Xavier) (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Díaz, Elisa (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals)
The use of Technosols for the restoration of limestone quarries overcomes the usual "in situ" scarcity of soil and/or its poor quality. The use of mine spoils, improved with mineral and/or organic amendments, could be an efficient and environmentally friendly option. [...]

Aim. Dynamic global vegetation models (DGVMs) use a discretization of forest vegetation based on plant functional types (PFTs). The physiological and ecological parameters used to model a given PFT are usually fixed, being defined from point-based observations, while model applications are often grid-based. [...]
