Variations in seasonal rainfall in Southern Europe during the present century: relationships with the North Atlantic Oscillation and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation
Abstract. Analysis of data from seventeen rainfall stations in the Iberian Peninsula, Balearic Islands and Northern Africa has revealed significant El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) signals inExpand
Structural and Functional Loss in Restored Wetland Ecosystems
In restored wetland ecosystems with apparently natural hydrology and biological structure, biogeochemical function may remain degraded, even a century after restoration efforts.
Scientific Foundations for an IUCN Red List of Ecosystems
A new conceptual model for ecosystem risk assessment founded on a synthesis of relevant ecological theories is presented, providing a consistent, practical and theoretically grounded framework for establishing a systematic Red List of the world’s ecosystems. Expand
Hydrogeochemical and biological characteristics of cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula (SE Mexico)
Cenotes (sinkholes) are the most peculiar aquatic ecosystem of the Yucatan Peninsula (SE Mexico). They are formed by dissolution of the carbonate rock in the karstic platform of the YucatanExpand
Macroinvertebrate patterns along environmental gradients and hydrological connectivity within a regulated river-floodplain
Abstract.Flood and flow pulses are primary factors that regulate macroinvertebrate community structure in river-floodplain ecosystems. In order to assess the impacts of these important hydrologicalExpand
Recent Changes in the Riparian Forest of a Large Regulated Mediterranean River: Implications for Management
Findings suggest measures principally aimed at recovering some hydrogeomorphic dynamism are recommended to guarantee the self-sustainability of the floodplain forest ecosystem. Expand
Effect of climate on the salt tolerance of two Phragmites australis populations. I. Growth, inorganic solutes, nitrogen relations and osmoregulation
Growth data point to higher salt tolerance at the Spanish site when using relative salt tolerance and absolute salt tolerance as criteria, and showed that P. australis populations differ in salt tolerance. Expand
Nutrient and plankton dynamics in a Mediterranean salt marsh dominated by incidents of flooding. Part 1: Differential confinement of nutrients
Variations in the physical and chemical characteristics of the water in a series of depressions in some Mediterranean salt marshes were studied. The quantity of water entering the system, and theExpand
