Abstract

Cork oak (Quercus suber L.) forests play an important ecological and economic role. Ectomycorrhizal fungi (ECMF) are key components for the sustainability and functioning of these ecosystems. The community structure and composition of ECMF associated with Q. suber in different landscapes of...

Abstract

Wildfires are a widespread phenomenon in Mediterranean environments. Wildfires result in different fire severities, and then in contrasting plant cover and floristic composition. This paper analyses the recovery of the vegetation eighteen years after a wildfire in Catalonia. The Pinus pinaster ssp. ...

Abstract

In the southwestern Mediterranean Basin, cork oaks (Quercus suber L.) are periodically harvested for their cork. This natural product is valued by its homogeneity which heightens the importance of characterizing cork tissue discontinuities, or cork pores. Cork porosity profile in natural cork...

Abstract

In the present study, a simulation model for the calculation of the carbon footprint of the cork oak sector (CCFM) is developed for the first time. A life cycle approach is adopted including the forest management, manufacturing, use and end-of-life stages. CCFM allows the user to insert the cork...

Abstract

Rates of recovery of soil organic matter (SOM) in abandoned fields of Mediterranean Spain are affected by spontaneous succession in the vegetation, the occurrence of periodic wildfires and lack of forest management. Soil organic matter has a relevant role together with the renaturalization process...

Abstract

The practice of multicriteria forest management planning is often complicated by the need to explicit a priori goals and preferences of the decisionmaker. This manuscript aims at describing an approach that may take advantage of a posteriori preference modeling to facilitate the specification of...
