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

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

Climate change will impact forest ecosystems, their biodiversity and the livelihoods they sustain. Several adaptation and mitigation strategies to counteract climate change impacts have been proposed for these ecosystems. However, effective implementation of such strategies requires a clear...

Abstract

Cork oak ecosystems, which are biodiversity hotspots and have great socio-economic importance in the western Mediterranean Basin, have been experiencing serious decline in the last decades attributed to different causes, including wildfires. Besides direct mortality, the surviving burned trees...

AbstractFull Text

Aim of study: The study aims to evaluate the maximum potential stocking level in cork oak (Quercus suber L.) woodlands, using the ecologically-based size-density relationship of the self-thinning law. Area of study: The study area refers to cork oak forests in mainland Portugal, distributed along...

Abstract

We evaluated the potential use of ants as a powerful tool for environmental monitoring, together with the applicability of the functional group approach as an alternative method for studying ant communities in cork oak woodlands. Variations in ant community composition, diversity and functional...

Abstract

The cork oak forest is an ecosystem playing a major role in Moroccan socio-economy and biodiversity conservation. However, this ecosystem is negatively impacted by extensive human- and climate-driven pressures, causing a strong decrease in its distribution and a worsening of the desertification...

Abstract

The influence of tree and stand variables, debarking intensity, and precipitation on the caliper of cork produced by a tree and on the evolution of cork caliper between consecutive cork extractions was researched. A total of 370 cork samples were collected in 23 permanent plots distributed across...

Abstract

Mortality is a key process in forest stand dynamics. However, tree mortality is not well understood, particularly in relation to climatic factors. The objectives of this study were to: (i) determine the patterns of maximum stem number per ha (MSN) over dominant tree height from 5-year...

Abstract

Oak open woodlands are widespread in southwestern Iberia and present outstanding ecological, biodiversity and socio-economic values. Evergreen species (holm and cork oaks) are prevalent but deciduous oaks may be also locally important. Three large xylophagous cerambycids are associated to these...
