Wilderness register and indicator for Europe

(October 2013)


[Excerpt] [Executive summary] The main aim of the contract was to increase data availability on wilderness in Europe. The Guidelines on management of wilderness and wild areas in Natura 2000 (DG Environment, in prep.) described the benefits of wilderness management within the framework of the EU Biodiversity strategy, analysed the pressures affecting wilderness areas and provided guidelines on their management and protection, largely based on best practice examples of wilderness and wild areas throughout Europe. However, an overview of remaining areas of wilderness and wildlands at the European ...


The concept of potential natural vegetation: an epitaph?

Journal of Vegetation Science, Vol. 21, No. 6. (December 2010), pp. 1172-1178,


We discuss the usefulness of the concept of Potential Natural Vegetation (PNV), which describes the expected state of mature vegetation in the absence of human intervention. We argue that it is impossible to model PNV because of (i) the methodological problems associated to its definition and (ii) the issues related to the ecosystems dynamics.We conclude that the approach to characterizing PNV is unrealistic and provides scenarios with limited predictive power. In places with a long-term human history, interpretations of PNV need ...


Landscape genomics and a common garden trial reveal adaptive differentiation to temperature across Europe in the tree species Alnus glutinosa

Molecular Ecology, Vol. 23, No. 19. (1 October 2014), pp. 4709-4721,


The adaptive potential of tree species to cope with climate change has important ecological and economic implications. Many temperate tree species experience a wide range of environmental conditions, suggesting high adaptability to new environmental conditions. We investigated adaptation to regional climate in the drought-sensitive tree species Alnus glutinosa (Black alder), using a complementary approach that integrates genomic, phenotypic and landscape data. A total of 24 European populations were studied in a common garden and through landscape genomic approaches. Genotyping-by-sequencing was used ...

Climatic classification and ordination of the Spanish Sistema Central: relationships with potential vegetation

Plant Ecology In Plant Ecology, Vol. 139, No. 1. (1998), pp. 1-11,


Monthly precipitation and monthly mean temperature records from 255 meteorological stations in Central Spain (Spanish Sistema Central) were analyzed by cluster and principal component analyses. Classification separated 14 groups according to altitude, geographical distribution, as well as the combination of rainfall and temperature. The first cluster emerged as significantly higher and colder than the second. Then, two ordinations were carried out: one for the 14 groups extracted from the classification and a second for the total station pool. The second ordination ...

Tree species composition in European pristine forests: comparison of stand data to model predictions

Climatic Change In Climatic Change, Vol. 51, No. 3-4. (1 December 2001), pp. 307-347,


The degree of general applicability across Europe currently achieved with several forest succession models is assessed, data needs and steps for further model development are identified and the role physiology based models can play in this process is evaluated. To this end, six forest succession models (DISCFORM, ForClim, FORSKA-M, GUESS, PICUS v1.2, SIERRA) are applied to simulate stand structure and species composition at 5 European pristine forest sites in different climatic regions. The models are initialized with site-specific soil information and ...


Large-scale recruitment limitation in Mediterranean pines: the role of Quercus ilex and forest successional advance as key regional drivers

Global Ecology and Biogeography (1 October 2013), pp. n/a-n/a,


Aim Large-scale patterns of limitations in tree recruitment remain poorly described in the Mediterranean Basin, and this information is required to assess the impacts of global warming on forests. Here, we unveil the existence of opposite trends of recruitment limitation between the dominant genera Quercus and Pinus on a large scale and identify the key ecological drivers of these diverging trends. Location Spain Methods We gathered data from the Spanish National Forest inventory to assess recruitment trends for the dominant species ...


Niche syndromes, species extinction risks, and management under climate change

Trends in Ecology & Evolution, Vol. 28, No. 9. (September 2013), pp. 517-523,


[Highlights] [::] Species can survive beyond the bounds of the fundamental niche. [::] The ‘tolerance niche’ informs extinction risk and management options. [::] Relations among the realized, fundamental, and tolerance niche can be examined. [::] These ‘niche syndromes’ have not previously been characterized. [::] Characterizing niche syndromes can advance basic and applied research goals. [Summary] The current distributions of species are often assumed to correspond with the total set of environmental conditions under which species can persist. When this assumption is incorrect, extinction risk estimated from species distribution ...


Predictive habitat distribution models in ecology

Ecological Modelling, Vol. 135, No. 2-3. (5 December 2000), pp. 147-186,


With the rise of new powerful statistical techniques and GIS tools, the development of predictive habitat distribution models has rapidly increased in ecology. Such models are static and probabilistic in nature, since they statistically relate the geographical distribution of species or communities to their present environment. A wide array of models has been developed to cover aspects as diverse as biogeography, conservation biology, climate change research, and habitat or species management. In this paper, we present a review of predictive habitat ...


Predicting species distribution: offering more than simple habitat models

Ecology Letters, Vol. 8, No. 9. (1 September 2005), pp. 993-1009,


In the last two decades, interest in species distribution models (SDMs) of plants and animals has grown dramatically. Recent advances in SDMs allow us to potentially forecast anthropogenic effects on patterns of biodiversity at different spatial scales. However, some limitations still preclude the use of SDMs in many theoretical and practical applications. Here, we provide an overview of recent advances in this field, discuss the ecological principles and assumptions underpinning SDMs, and highlight critical limitations and decisions inherent in the construction ...


Garden plants get a head start on climate change

Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, Vol. 6, No. 4. (May 2008), pp. 212-216,


Conservation biologists are concerned that climate change will cause widespread extinctions because limited capacity for migration could compromise species’ ability to adjust to geographic shifts in habitat condition. However, commercial plant nurseries may provide a head start for northward range shifts among some plant species. To investigate this possibility, we compared the natural ranges of 357 native European plant species with their commercial ranges, based on 246 plant nurseries throughout Europe. In 73% of native species, commercial northern range limits exceeded ...


Die Urwälder der Westkarpaten



This monograph is a revised and expanded German version of a Slovak book Pralesy Slovenska (Virgin forests of Slovakia) published in 1989. It covers the general characteristics of virgin (natural or near-natural) forests, and gives information on the occurrence, distribution, current condition (structure, growth, regeneration, etc.) and features of the virgin forests of the western Carpathians, by altitudinal vegetation zones: oak (Quercus spp.); beech (Fagus sylvatica)/oak; oak/beech; beech; silver fir (Abies alba)/beech; Norway spruce (Picea abies)/beech/silver fir; and Norway spruce. ...
