Effects of slope angle and aspect on plant cover and species richness in a humid Mediterranean badland

Earth Surface Processes and Landforms, Vol. 39, No. 13. (October 2014), pp. 1705-1716,


Soil erosion is one of the most severe land degradation processes in the Mediterranean region. Although badlands occupy a relatively small fraction of the Mediterranean area, their erosion rates are very high. Many studies have investigated to what extent vegetation controls soil erosion rates. This study, however, deals with the impact of erosion on vegetation establishment. In semi-arid badlands of the Mediterranean, soil water availability constitutes the main limiting factor for vegetation development. As a consequence, south-facing slopes are typically less ...


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 ...


Role of geographical provenance in the response of silver fir seedlings to experimental warming and drought

Tree Physiology, Vol. 36, No. 10. (October 2016), pp. 1236-1246,


Changes in climate can alter the distribution and population dynamics of tree species by altering their recruitment patterns, especially at range edges. However, geographical patterns of genetic diversity could buffer the negative consequences of changing climate at rear range edges where populations might also harbour individuals with drought-adapted genotypes. Silver fir ( Abies alba Mill.) reaches its south-western distribution limit in the Spanish Pyrenees, where recent climatic dieback events have disproportionately affected westernmost populations. We hypothesized that silver fir populations from ...

Black woodpecker Dryocopus martius (L., 1758) distribution, abundance, habitat use and breeding performance in a recently colonized region in SW Europe

Munibe Ciencias Naturales, Vol. 63 (2015)


At the southwestern edge of its global distribution, the Pyrenean population of the black woodpecker Dryocopus martius has increased its range during the last three decades, colonizing new areas where the species was previously unknown. This is the case for Gipuzkoa, where a systematic survey was performed in the breeding season of 2013 aimed at describing the species distribution, abundance, habitat use and reproductive performance. Potential locations were identified using forest inventories and were visited since January until March. Locations were considered occupied when nests or pairs ...

Ecology and silviculture of the main valuable broadleaved species in the Pyrenean area and neighbouring regions



The production of valuable broadleaved species is an interesting alternative of great economic and environmental potential for many types of areas. The Catalan Forest Ownership Centre (CPF) and the Forest Sciences Centre of Catalonia (CTFC) began in 2001 a line of research to study the potential of Catalonia for the production of quality wood, specially walnut and cherry. During this collaboration, 20 experimental plantations of these and other additional species were performed, in order to evaluate species adaptation, the adequation of ...


Uncoupled spatiotemporal patterns of seed dispersal and regeneration in Pyrenean silver fir populations

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 319 (May 2014), pp. 18-28,


Silver fir (Abies alba) reaches its southwestern distribution limit (rear edge) in the Pyrenees, where it forms highly fragmented populations threatened by drought-induced die-off. Therefore, we need a better knowledge of regeneration patterns and processes (seed production and dispersal, regeneration niche) of such rear-edge stands to assist their long-term conservation. Seed rain patterns were studied in two structurally contrasting sites: an even-aged pure stand (Las Eras) and an uneven-aged mixed silver fir-beech (Fagus sylvatica) stand (Gamueta) over 8 and 12 years, ...


Identification of eroded areas using remote sensing in a badlands landscape on marls in the central Spanish Pyrenees

CATENA, Vol. 76, No. 3. (March 2009), pp. 182-190,


Identification of erosion areas on a regional scale can be very useful for environmental planning, and can help reduce land degradation and sediment yield to streams and reservoirs. Remote sensing techniques were used to determine erosion and erosion risk areas in a badlands landscape in the Ésera River catchment (Spanish Pyrenees). The size, sparse vegetation cover, and high erosion level in the badlands, enabled good visual and digital discrimination relative to other land covers and surfaces. The maximum likelihood algorithm was ...


Inferring shifts in tree species distribution using asymmetric distribution curves: a case study in the Iberian mountains

Journal of Vegetation Science, Vol. 25, No. 1. (January 2014), pp. 147-159,


Questions The objectives of this study were to examine altitudinal shifts in tree species distributions over one decade to quantify the potential for tree migration. Location Spain. Methods We analysed presence–absence data using two successive surveys of the Spanish Forest Inventory in five Fagaceae tree species (two temperate: Fagus sylvatica and Quercus petraea, one sub-Mediterranean: Q. faginea and two Mediterranean: Q. suber and Q. ilex) in two mountain ranges (the Pyrenees and the Iberian system). Half of the fitted altitudinal distributions were skewed and required use ...


Identifying erosive periods by using RUSLE factors in mountain fields of the Central Spanish Pyrenees

Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, Vol. 12, No. 2. (6 March 2008), pp. 523-535,


The Mediterranean environment is characterized by strong temporal variations in rainfall volume and intensity, soil moisture and vegetation cover along the year. These factors play a key role on soil erosion. The aim of this work is to identify different erosive periods in function of the temporal changes in rainfall and runoff characteristics (erosivity, maximum intensity and number of erosive events), soil properties (soil erodibility in relation to freeze-thaw processes and soil moisture content) and current tillage practices in a set ...


Increasing Aridity is Enhancing Silver Fir Abies Alba Mill.) Water Stress in its South-Western Distribution Limit

Climatic Change, Vol. 79, No. 3. (1 December 2006), pp. 289-313,


Tree populations located at the geographical distribution limit of the species may provide valuable information about the response of tree growth to climate warming across climatic gradients. Dendroclimatic information was extracted from a network of 10 silver-fir ( Abies alba ) populations in the south-western distribution limit of the species (Pyrenees, NE Iberian Peninsula). Ring-width chronologies were built for five stands sampled in mesic sites from the Main Range in the Pyrenees, and for five forests located in the southern Peripheral ...
