Lexicographic optimisation for water resources planning: the case of Lake Verbano, Italy

  
In Proceedings of the iEMSs First Biennial Meeting: Integrated Assessment and Decision Support (2002), pp. 235-240

Abstract

Lake Verbano is a natural lake used as multipurpose reservoir. The lake supplies water for irrigation and hydropower generation to downstream users, while flood controls are applied to protect the lake shores and the downstream populations on the Ticino river, and environmental preservation constraints must be respected. All these objectives are conflicting and they have different priorities, as stated by the Italian regulation on water use. This paper explores a methodology aimed at solving this conflict. The stakeholders involvement in the ...

 

Italy rebuked for failure to prevent olive-tree tragedy

  
Nature, Vol. 546, No. 7657. (7 June 2017), pp. 193-194, https://doi.org/10.1038/546193a

Abstract

European Commission reveals widespread delays by the country’s authorities to halt spread of deadly plant disease. [Excerpt] A vicious pathogen that is destroying historic olive groves in Puglia, southern Italy, is marching north and threatens to reach the rest of Europe. Yet Italian authorities last year failed to track the infection’s spread, and didn’t follow containment plans agreed with the European Commission, according to an audit released last week by the commission. [...] The pathogen — for which there is no cure ...

 

Building Rothermel fire behaviour fuel models by genetic algorithm optimisation

  
International Journal of Wildland Fire, Vol. 24, No. 3. (2015), 317, https://doi.org/10.1071/wf14097

Abstract

A method to build and calibrate custom fuel models was developed by linking genetic algorithms (GA) to the Rothermel fire spread model. GA randomly generates solutions of fuel model parameters to form an initial population. Solutions are validated against observations of fire rate of spread via a goodness-of-fit metric. The population is selected for its best members, crossed over and mutated within a range of model parameter values, until a satisfactory fitness is reached. We showed that GA improved the performance ...

 

Deadly new wheat disease threatens Europe’s crops

  
Nature, Vol. 542, No. 7640. (2 February 2017), pp. 145-146, https://doi.org/10.1038/nature.2017.21424

Abstract

Researchers caution that stem rust may have returned to world’s largest wheat-producing region. [Excerpt] [...] Last year, the stem rust destroyed tens of thousands of hectares of crops in Sicily. What’s particularly troubling, the researchers say, is that GRRC (Global Rust Reference Center) tests suggest the pathogen can infect dozens of laboratory-grown strains of wheat, including hardy varieties that are usually highly resistant to disease. The team is now studying whether commercial crops are just as susceptible. [\n] Adding further concern, the centres ...

 

Analyzing spatiotemporal changes in wildfire regime and exposure across a Mediterranean fire-prone area

  
Natural Hazards In Natural Hazards, Vol. 71, No. 3. (2014), pp. 1389-1418, https://doi.org/10.1007/s11069-013-0951-0

Abstract

We evaluated the spatiotemporal changes in wildfire regime and exposure in a fire-prone Mediterranean area (Sardinia, Italy) in relation to changes in ignition patterns, weather, suppression activities, and land uses. We also used wildfire simulations to identify fine-scale changes in wildfire exposure of important features on the island. Sardinia experienced a sharp reduction in fire number and area burned between the periods 1980–1994 and 1995–2009. Despite this decrease, losses and fatalities from wildfires continue. This suggests that localized areas and seasons ...

 

Analyzing seasonal patterns of wildfire exposure factors in Sardinia, Italy

  
Environmental Monitoring and Assessment, Vol. 187, No. 1. (2014), pp. 1-20, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10661-014-4175-x

Abstract

In this paper, we applied landscape scale wildfire simulation modeling to explore the spatiotemporal patterns of wildfire likelihood and intensity in the island of Sardinia (Italy). We also performed wildfire exposure analysis for selected highly valued resources on the island to identify areas characterized by high risk. We observed substantial variation in burn probability, fire size, and flame length among time periods within the fire season, which starts in early June and ends in late September. Peak burn probability and flame ...

 

Decreasing fires in Mediterranean Europe

  
PLoS ONE, Vol. 11, No. 3. (16 March 2016), e0150663, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0150663

Abstract

Forest fires are a serious environmental hazard in southern Europe. Quantitative assessment of recent trends in fire statistics is important for assessing the possible shifts induced by climate and other environmental/socioeconomic changes in this area. Here we analyse recent fire trends in Portugal, Spain, southern France, Italy and Greece, building on a homogenized fire database integrating official fire statistics provided by several national/EU agencies. During the period 1985-2011, the total annual burned area (BA) displayed a general decreasing trend, with the ...

Can Apulia's olive trees be saved?

  
Science, Vol. 353, No. 6297. (2016), pp. 346-348, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.aaf9710

Abstract

On 21 October 2013, the Italian phytosanitary service notified the European Commission (EC) that the plant pathogen Xylella fastidiosa had been detected in olive trees near Gallipoli, a tourist destination in Italy's southern region of Apulia (1). This xylem-limited bacterium is spread by insect vectors and causes disease in crops such as grapevines, citrus, coffee, and almond; various ornamentals; and trees such as oaks, elms, and sycamores. Because of the risks of X. fastidiosa being introduced, established, and spread throughout Europe, ...

Evidences of drought stress as a predisposing factor to Scots pine decline in Valle d’Aosta (Italy)

  
European Journal of Forest Research In European Journal of Forest Research, Vol. 131, No. 4. (25 October 2012), pp. 989-1000, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10342-011-0570-9

Abstract

Scots pine ( Pinus sylvestris L.) forests of many inner Alpine valleys have recently displayed a quick loss of vitality. A decline disease has been suggested as the cause, with drought as the main predisposing factor and the additional contribution of biotic agents inciting tree dieback. This study is focused on Valle d’Aosta, a dry, inner-Alpine region in NW Italy. We inferred vitality changes between years 2000 and 2007 by computing reductions in enhanced vegetation index (EVI). Image differencing was carried ...

Abstract

Since 2005, pitch canker symptoms have been observed in Apulia (southern Italy, 41°27′42.84″N, 15°33′0.36″E) on numerous trees of Pinus halepensis and P. pinea in urban parks and gardens. Trees showed crown decline as a consequence of dieback of twigs and branches and withering of needles. Bleeding cankers with abundant resin were visible on twigs and branches. The needles of affected twigs and branches wilted, faded, turned yellow, then red, and were discarded. Isolations from symptomatic needles, twigs, and branches were performed ...

 

The olive quick decline syndrome in south-east Italy: a threatening phytosanitary emergency

  
European Journal of Plant Pathology (2015), pp. 1-9, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10658-015-0784-7

Abstract

The olive quick decline syndrome (OQDS) is a disease that appeared suddenly a few years ago in the province of Lecce (Salento peninsula, southeastern Italy). Among the factors that may be involved in its aetiology, the most relevant is Xylella fastidiosa, a quarantine pathogen of American origin, whose presence in Italy represents its first confirmed record in the European Union. X. fastidiosa is a Gram-negative bacterium that invades the xylem of a wide range of hosts, from which it is acquired ...

Acer-Fraxinus dominated woods of the Italian Peninsula: a floristic and phytogeographical analysis

  
Acta Societatis Botanicorum Poloniae, Vol. 81, No. 2. (2012), pp. 123-130, https://doi.org/10.5586/asbp.2011.037

Abstract

Forest communities dominated by noble broad-leaved trees (maple, lime and ash) in Europe are of elevated scientific and conservation interest for the European Union. In this paper, we first present a synthesis of the maple and ash forests in peninsular Italy. By classifying these forests, we distinguish seven main groups for the territory, which only broadly match the syntaxa proposed in the literature. The variability of the Apennine data is then analysed floristically and phytogeographically (using chorological components) in a central-southern ...

 

Natural afforestation and landscape changes in the Eastern Prealps of Italy

  
Revue de Géographie Alpine, Vol. 81, No. 3. (1993), pp. 95-102

Abstract

The paper describes the consequences of agricultural decline on the vegetation and landscapes of the Italian eastern Prealps (Friuli - Venezia Giulia). Since the beginning of the century, and in particular from the 1950s onwards, the area covered by forest has increased as agricultural land and abandoned meadows have given way to successions of secondary vegetation. The most common woodlands are formed of ash and sycamore, manna-larch and hop hornbeam, or durmast-oak and hop hornbeam. These vegetation formations are susceptible to ...

Abstract

Ostrya carpinifolia woods have been extensively studied in C-Italy, while they lack specific researches and a clear phytosociological scheme in the southern part of the country. We have analyzed original and published relevés from Campania and Calabria regions, and we have compared them with bibliographic data from central Italy. The existing southern Italian Ostrya-dominated associations are revised as for their character species and bioclimatic position. Floristic analysis underlines a set of biogeographically relevant species which differentiate these communities from their C-Italian ...

 

A statistical approach to species identification on morphological traits of European white oaks: evidence of morphological structure in Italian populations of Quercus pubescens sensu lato

  
Acta Botanica Gallica, Vol. 158, No. 2. (1 January 2011), pp. 175-188, https://doi.org/10.1080/12538078.2011.10516265

Abstract

Abstract Statistical analyses are applied to investigate morphological relationships among 309 oak trees belonging to European white oaks. The method is based on discriminant analysis for the species assignment, using several morphological features of young twigs, buds, leaves and fruits. Discriminant functions are then used to compute the probability of each individual belonging to a species. The results indicate that Quercus frainetto, Q. petraea and Q. robur are clearly discriminated; Q. virgiliana and Q. pubescens are more related, but well distinguishable; ...

Evolution comparée des structures des peuplements mélangés à Quercus suber et Quercus pubescens après élimination du pâturage en forêt de Pisano (Sicile sud-orientale)

  
Ecologia Mediterranea, Vol. 24, No. 1. (1998), pp. 15-25

Abstract

Several studies carried out in north-west Mediterranean areas showed the role of Quercus deciduous species as pioneer woody species in secondary succession processes in abandoned areas. The aim of this paper is to verify this phenomenon in a Quercus suber open woodland in Monti Iblei (South-East Sicily, Italy) where grazing is still present. A diachronie approach was used to study the patterns and growth rate of young individuals (seedlings and saplings) of a deciduous oak (Q. pubescens) and a sclero- phyllous ...

(suball.: Teucrio-Quercenion cerridis suball. nov., Ptilostemo-Quercenion cerridis); Pino-Quercion congestae (suball.: Pino-Quercenion congestaeQuercenion virgilianae suball. nov.) and Erythronio-Quercion petraeae. The Quercion pubescenti-petraeae is a sintaxon with a sub-continental character and within the Italian Peninsula it is restricted to ...

 

A phytosociological study of the deciduous oak woods of Sardinia (Italy)

  
Fitosociologia, Vol. 41, No. 1. (2004), pp. 53-65

Abstract

We present here the results from a phytosociological and synchorological study of the deciduous oak woods of Sardinia. This vegetation analysis has allowed the individuation of three new associations: Lonicero implexae-Quercetum virgilianae, Ornithogalo pyrenaici-Quercetum ichnusae and Glechomo sardoae-Quercetum congestae. The Lonicero implexae-Quercetum virgilianae association includes the woods on calcareous substrata spread throughout Northern Sardinia, which can occasionally be found in southern areas; the first of these are rich in mesophilous species and are attributed to the subassociation cyclaminetosum repandi, while the ...

 

Genetic structure of a natural oak community in central Italy: Evidence of gene flow between three sympatric white oak species (Quercus, Fagaceae)

  
Annals of Forest Research, Vol. 57, No. 2. (20 July 2015), pp. 1-12, https://doi.org/10.15287/afr.2015.415

Abstract

Incomplete reproductive barriers between species, especially in sympatric areas where several species coexist, may result in hybridization and an increase in genetic diversity. Here we assessed the amount of genetic diversity in a community of three interfertile and sympatric European oaks (Quercus frainetto Ten., Q. petraea Liebl. Matt. and Q. pubescens Willd.) situated in central Italy. We used 11 microsatellite markers derived from Expressed Sequence Tag (EST-SSRs) and we implemented a Bayesian clustering analysis to assign individuals to species or hybrids. ...

 

Oak forest exploitation and black-locust invasion caused severe shifts in epiphytic lichen communities in Northern Italy

  
Science of The Total Environment, Vol. 408, No. 22. (October 2010), pp. 5506-5512, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2010.07.056

Abstract

In the last two centuries, native European oak forests have undergone a dramatic decline related to increasing human pressure for agriculture and urbanization. Oak forests were either completely eradicated and transformed into agricultural landscapes or replaced by second-growth formations. Intensive forest management and the replacement of native forests with production forests or arable lands are recognized amongst the main threats to many lichens in Europe. In this study, we used historical information on the epiphytic lichen biota which was hosted in ...

 

Effects of logging and non-native tree proliferation on the birds overwintering in the upland forests of north-western Italy

  
Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 179, No. 1-3. (July 2003), pp. 441-454, https://doi.org/10.1016/s0378-1127(02)00542-x

Abstract

Factors associated with management and logging practices are of particular interest in the perspective of biodiversity management. In this study we focused on overwintering birds of two close and contrasting forest habitats: a 60–120 years old oak forest and a secondary 10–20 years old wood that has lost most of its original vegetation because of continuous logging and is now dominated by an introduced species, black locust Robinia pseudoacacia. We examined bird use of the forests over two levels: species–habitat relationships ...

 

The rise and fall of the black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) in the "Siro Negri" Forest Reserve (Lombardy, Italy): lessons learned and future uncertainties

  
Annals of Forest Science In Annals of Forest Science, Vol. 66, No. 4. (2009), pp. 410-410, https://doi.org/10.1051/forest%2f2009012

Abstract

The alluvial forests of the Ticino valley have been greatly reduced in size and are now represented by only a small number of fragmented remnants. To study the natural development of the black locust, an invasive species, on relatively undisturbed lowland forests, two permanent plots were established in 2005 in the “Siro Negri” Forest Reserve. The black locust became established almost exclusively between 1940 and 1960. The observed dynamic of the black locust in the Reserve was very similar to what has ...
