Selection of ecological indicators for the conservation, management and monitoring of Mediterranean coastal salinas

Abstract Salinas systems are artificial wetlands which are interesting from the viewpoint of nature conservation. They play an important role both as habitats for migratory waterbird species and as nodes of biotic connectivity networks. In the Mediterranean basin, where the coastal salinas are highly significant as alternative and complementary habitats for waterbirds, a process of […]

Applying the socio-ecological approach to biocrust research: a call for scientific action

Abstract Biocrusts play a key role in maintaining drylands ecosystems at the global scale. These keystone communities face important human[ERC1] threats (e.g. climate change) that can result in both biocrust coverage loss and community composition changes and are expected to negatively affect soil biodiversity, and the functioning and resilience of drylands ecosystems. In this adverse […]

Inclusive conservation and the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework: Tensions and prospects

Abstract The draft Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework commits to achievement of equity and justice outcomes and represents a “relational turn” in how we understand inclusive conservation. Although “inclusivity” is drawn on as a means to engage diverse stakeholders, widening the framing of inclusivity can create new tensions with regard to how to manage protected areas. […]

Current European flood-rich period exceptional compared with past 500 years

Abstract There are concerns that recent climate change is altering the frequency and magnitude of river floods in an unprecedented way1. Historical studies have identified flood-rich periods in the past half millennium in various regions of Europe2. However, because of the low temporal resolution of existing datasets and the relatively low number of series, it […]

Organic geochemistry and mineralogy suggest anthropogenic impact in speleothem chemistry from volcanic show caves of the Galapagos

Abstract The network of lava tubes is one of the most unexploited natural wonders of the Galapagos Islands. Here, we provide the first morphological, mineralogical, and biogeochemical assessment of speleothems from volcanic caves of the Galapagos to understand their structure, composition, and origin, as well as to identify organic molecules preserved in speleothems. Mineralogical analyses […]

Remote Sensing in Sierra Nevada: From Abiotic Processes to Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functions and Services

Abstract During the last decades, remote sensing has changed the way humans observe and understand the Earth system. The repeated and increasingly detailed observations made from satelliteSatellite platforms and other remote sensing procedures have revolutionized research, particularly in the atmospheric and oceanographic sciences but also in the biophysical sciences. This chapter presents a systematic literature […]

Rethinking ecosystem service indicators for their application to intermittent rivers

Abstract In these times of strong pressure on aquatic ecosystems and water resources due to climate change and water abstraction, intermittent rivers and ephemeral streams (IRES) (rivers that periodically cease to flow and/or dry) have become valuable assets. Indeed, not only do they supply water but they also offer services for humanity. Despite a growing […]

Intra‐specific variation in migration phenology of American Kestrels (Falco sparverius) in response to spring temperatures

Abstract In migratory birds, among‐ and within‐species heterogeneity in response to climate change may be attributed to differences in migration distance and environmental cues that affect timing of arrival at breeding grounds. We used eBird observations and a within‐species comparative approach to examine whether migration distance (with latitude as a proxy) and weather predictors can […]

Mediterranean Landscape Re-Greening at the Expense of South American Agricultural Expansion

Abstract The stabling of livestock farming implies changes in both local ecosystems (regeneration of forest stands via reduced grazing) and those located thousands of kilometers away (deforestation to produce grain for feeding livestock). Despite their importance, these externalities are poorly known. Here we evaluated how the intensification and confinement of livestock in Spain has affected […]
