History matters: previous land use changes determine post-fire vegetation recovery in forested Mediterranean landscapes

  
Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 279 (September 2012), pp. 121-127, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.foreco.2012.05.020

Abstract

[Abstract] Land use changes and shifts in disturbance regimes (e.g. wildfires) are recognized worldwide as two of the major drivers of the current global change in terrestrial ecosystems. We expect that, in areas with large-scale land use changes, legacies from previous land uses persist and affect current ecosystem responses to climate-associated disturbances like fire. This study analyses whether post-fire vegetation dynamics may differ according to specific historical land use histories in a Mediterranean forest landscape of about 60,000 ha that was burnt ...

 

Recurrent wildfires constrain long-term reproduction ability in Pinus halepensis Mill.

  
International Journal of Wildland Fire, Vol. 17, No. 5. (2008), 579, https://doi.org/10.1071/wf07078

Abstract

Increasing fire recurrence is a major problem threatening Mediterranean-type ecosystems. Moreover, this pattern is predicted to increase owing to global change. Although a reduction in the density and growth of post-fire regeneration is usually observed in recurrently burnt areas, the potential effects on reproductive ability have seldom been explored. The aim of the present study is to investigate whether structural changes induced by fire recurrence may constrain reproduction ability of Pinus halepensis forests. We conducted the current study in Catalonia (NE ...

 

Resprouting patterns after fire and response to stool cleaning of two coexisting Mediterranean oaks with contrasting leaf habits on two different sites

  
Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 179, No. 1-3. (July 2003), pp. 401-414, https://doi.org/10.1016/s0378-1127(02)00541-8

Abstract

The extension of mixed evergreen (Quercus ilex) and winter deciduous (Quercus cerrioides) oak coppices is increasing in NE Spain as a consequence of large wildfires. The best alternative to manage these high-density and low production forests is their conversion into stored coppices (i.e. coppices with few stems per stool). However, in this process, functional differences arising from the contrasted leaf-habit of the two co-occurring oaks should be taken into account. In this study, we explore the resprouting patterns and the response ...

 

Identificación de los anillos anuales de crecimiento de la encina (Quercus ilex. L.)

  
Orsis, Vol. 8 (1993), pp. 127-139

Abstract

Methods for intelpreting annual tree-rings of holm oak (Quercus ilex L.). The growth pattem of the holm oak (Quercus ilex L.) is difficult to interpret due to varied features of its wood. In order to find a practical as well as reliable method for interpreting annual ...

 

Constraints and trade-offs in Mediterranean plant communities: The case of holm oak-Aleppo pine forests

  
The Botanical Review, Vol. 66, No. 1. (2000), pp. 119-149, https://doi.org/10.1007/bf02857785

Abstract

In this paper we review those aspects that are relevant to the development of a mechanistic ecological theory to account for the structure and dynamics of Mediterranean forests, focusing our attention on mixed forests of holm oak (Quercus ilex L.), a shade-tolerant, slowgrowing species that resprouts vigorously after disturbance, and Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis M.), a fast-growing, nonresprouting, shade-intolerant species. The main objectives of this report are: to introduce some of the primary features of these forests, showing their structural complexity ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
