Climate extremes and predicted warming threaten Mediterranean Holocene firs forests refugia

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 114, No. 47. (21 November 2017), pp. E10142-E10150,


[Significance] Climate extremes are major drivers of long-term forest growth trends, but we still lack appropriate knowledge to anticipate their effects. Here, we apply a conceptual framework to assess the vulnerability of Circum-Mediterranean Abies refugia in response to climate warming, droughts, and heat waves. Using a tree-ring network and a process-based model, we assess the future vulnerability of Mediterranean Abies forests. Models anticipate abrupt growth reductions for the late 21st century when climatic conditions will be analogous to the most severe dry/heat ...


Silver fir defoliation likelihood is related to negative growth trends and high warming sensitivity at their southernmost distribution limit

ISRN Forestry, Vol. 2012 (2012), pp. 1-8,


Changes in radial growth have been used to estimate tree decline probability since they may indicate tree responses to long- and short-term stressors. We used visual assessments of crown defoliation, an indicator of decline, and retrospective tree-ring analyses to determine whether climate-growth sensitivity and tree growth rates may be used as predictors of tree die-off probability in Abies alba (silver fir) at the Spanish Pyrenees. We used climatic data to calculate standardized temperature and precipitation data and drought indexes. Basal area ...


Structure and Regeneration Patterns of Pinus nigra subsp. salzmannii Natural Forests: A Basic Knowledge for Adaptive Management in a Changing Climate

Forests, Vol. 2, No. 4. (09 December 2011), pp. 1013-1030,


Since climate change projections contain many uncertainties and are normally unable to predict the direction and magnitude of change at the small scale needed by forest managers, some understanding about the functioning of the target forest should be obtained before a robust management strategy can be applied. Structure and regeneration patterns are related to key ecosystem processes which, on the other hand, can be modified by silvicultural treatments. In this research, the structure and recruitment dynamics of two stands with different ...


Shifting limiting factors for population dynamics and conservation status of the endangered English yew (Taxus baccata L., Taxaceae)

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 291, No. 0. (2013), pp. 119-127,


English yew (Taxus baccata L., Taxaceae) is a Tertiary relict locally endangered within parts of its large geographic range. In this paper, I seek to synthesise the literature and discuss the limiting factors for population dynamics and conservation status of this endangered tree. The literature was reviewed, focusing on yew fossil records, biogeography, molecular ecology, stand structure (size, age and sex ratios), and regeneration dynamics. The information reviewed illustrates diminishing population viability mainly in southern marginal areas of the geographical range ...


Biogeography and evolution of Abies (Pinaceae) in the Mediterranean Basin: the roles of long-term climatic change and glacial refugia

Journal of Biogeography, Vol. 38, No. 4. (1 April 2011), pp. 619-630,


[Aim]  The genus Abies exemplifies plant diversification related to long-term climatic, geological and evolutionary changes. Today, the Mediterranean firs comprise nine species, one natural hybrid and several varieties. Here I summarize current knowledge concerning the origin and evolution of the genus Abies in the Mediterranean Basin and propose a comprehensive hypothesis to explain the isolation and speciation pattern of Mediterranean firs. [Location]  The Mediterranean Basin. [Methods]  The literature on Abies was reviewed, focusing on the morphology, fossil records, molecular ecology, phytosociology and biogeography ...

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.
