    Why is it so important to restore degraded landscapes? It’s actually very simple.
    We rely on healthy ecosystems to provide us with our food, water, clean air, climate stability, social and economic wealth; even our happiness and well-being. We only have to look at history to see the devastating consequences of not valuing or understanding ecosystems: whole civilizations have vanished after overexploiting their natural resources.

    La importancia de los incendios forestales en la cuenca mediterránea hace de estas perturbaciones un factor determinante en el análisis y la gestión de riesgos ecológicos, así como en los vinculados a la protección civil. La actual demanda de servicios recreativos en el bosque genera una intensificación de estos riesgos, lo que precisa de una adecuada respuesta por todos los agentes implicados en la gestión.

    En el presente trabajo se analiza cómo afecta la composición y estructura del bosque a la riqueza de aves forestales, a escala de 1x1 km, en Cataluña. Se muestra que la riqueza de aves se ve favorecida por la cabida forestal, siempre que se evite la dominancia de masas excesivamente cerradas (FCC [Fracción de Cabida Cubierta] 70%); por la presencia de las clases naturales de edad más avanzadas (latizales y fustales); y por la diversidad de especies arbóreas y la mezcla de frondosas y coníferas.

    Land Use Policy Volume 59

    Peer-reviewed publication
    December, 2016
    Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, United States of America

    We propose a causal analysis framework to increase understanding of land-use change (LUC) and the reliability of LUC models. This health-sciences-inspired framework can be applied to determine probable causes of LUC in the context of bioenergy. Calculations of net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for LUC associated with biofuel production are critical in determining whether a fuel qualifies as a biofuel or advanced biofuel category under regional (EU), national (US, UK), and state (California) regulations.
