25 p, 351.5 KB Sewage sludge as an organic amendment for quarry restoration : effects on soil and vegetation / Carabassa, Vicenç (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i d'Aplicacions Forestals) ; Ortiz Perpiñà, Oriol (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i d'Aplicacions Forestals) ; Alcañiz, Josep M. (Josep Maria) (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i d'Aplicacions Forestals) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia
Quarry restoration in Mediterranean environments usually needs organic amendments to improve the substrates used for technosol construction. Digested sewage sludges from municipal wastewater treatment plants are rich in organic matter, N, and P and constitute an available and economically interesting alternative for substrate amendment.

11 p, 2.5 MB Mapping the intangible : using geolocated social media data to examine landscape aesthetics / Langemeyer, Johannes (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Calcagni, Fulvia (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Baró Porras, Francesc (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
The ecosystem services concept is increasingly gaining momentum in land-use policies and landscape planning. Yet, cultural ecosystem services often lack proper assessments. With this study, we use novel methodological approaches to map the cultural ecosystem service landscape aesthetics for its enhanced consideration in land-use policies. [...]

Departamento de Geografía, Urbanismo y Ordenación del Territorio) ; Cunill Artigas, Raquel (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Department de Geografia) ; García-Codron, Juan Carlos (Universidad de Cantabria.

Fire has been one of the main causes of disturbance of vegetation over time, and since the Neolithic has become an irreplaceable tool for the opening of forest spaces and maintenance of pastures. Previous studies showed that the intensity and effects of wildfires are related to the biomass and controlled by climate factors. [...]

42 p, 2.5 MB Mapping ecosystem service capacity, flow and demand for landscape and urban planning: A case study in the Barcelona metropolitan region / Baró Porras, Francesc (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Palomo, Ignacio (Basque Centre for Climate Change (Bilbao)) ; Zulian, Grazia (Institute for Environment and Sustainability (Itàlia)) ; Vizcaino, Pilar (European Commission. Joint Research Centre) ; Haase, Dagmar (Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (Alemanya). Department of Computational Landscape Ecology) ; Gómez-Baggethun, Erik (Norwegian University of Life Sciences. Department of International Environment and Development Studies (Noragric))
Ecosystem services (ES) mapping is attracting growing interest from landscape and urban planning, but its operationalization in actual decision-making is still limited. A clear distinction between ES capacity, flow and demand can improve the usefulness of ES mapping as a decision-support tool by informing planners and policy-makers where ES are used unsustainably and where ES flow is failing to meet societal demand.
