Biodiversity scenarios neglect future land‐use changes
It is argued that the current state of integration between ecological and land system sciences is leading to biased estimation of actual risks and therefore constrains the implementation of forward-looking policy responses to biodiversity decline and suggests research directions at the crossroads between ecology and environmental sciences to face the challenge of developing interoperable and plausible projections of future environmental changes.
Rural abandoned landscapes and bird assemblages: winners and losers in the rewilding of a marginal mountain area (NW Spain)
Abstract In many regions of Europe, large-scale socio-economic changes have led to the abandonment of rural activities and a gradual takeover of natural vegetation. It is important to assess the
Fire and biodiversity in the Anthropocene
How changes in fire activity are threatening species with extinction across the globe are reviewed, forward-looking methods for predicting the combined effects of human drivers and fire on biodiversity are highlighted, and emerging actions and strategies that could revolutionize how society manages fire for biodiversity in the Anthropocene are foreshadowed.
Synergies Between Forest Biomass Extraction for Bioenergy and Fire Suppression in Mediterranean Ecosystems: Insights from a Storyline-and-Simulation Approach
Increases in fire impacts over many regions of the world have led to large-scale investments in fire-suppression efforts. There is increasing recognition that biomass extraction for energy purposes
Unravelling the response of diurnal raptors to land use change in a highly dynamic landscape in northwestern Spain: an approach based on satellite earth observation data
Land use and land cover change (LULCC) is one of the main components of current anthropogenic global change. Unravelling the ecological response of biodiversity to the combined effect of land use

The positive carbon stocks-biodiversity relationship in forests: co-occurrence and drivers across five subclimates.
The results highlight the need to jointly determine the spatial patterns of ecosystem services and biodiversity for an effective and sustainable planning of forest landscapes that simultaneously support conservation and mitigate climate change.
Modelling the feeding behavior of Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) in a coastal wetland of NW Iberian peninsula during the wintering season
El modelo mas parsimonioso obtenido de acuerdo con el Criterio de Informacion de Akaike incluyo the edad, the hora mareal and el tipo of sustrato como variables predictivas y no se encontraron diferencias significativas en the efectividad entre adultos y juveniles.
