In Southwestern Spain, multifunctional silvopastoral systems consisting of pastureland and open oak woodlands are known as Dehesas. These, and other similar systems of the Mediterranean basin, are currently threatened by increasing intensive land use. As a consequence, oak regeneration is declining and is in need of adequate management and active(More)
An intense debate exists on the effects of post-fire salvage logging on plant community regeneration, but scant data are available derived from experimental studies. We analyzed the effects of salvage logging on plant community regeneration in terms of species richness, diversity, cover, and composition by experimentally managing a burnt forest on a(More)
This study analyses the Andalusian mycobiota (Agaricales, Boletales, Russulales) from a biogeographical standpoint. For this, the best-represented groups of macrofungi have been selected, including ectomycorrhizal and saprotrophic species, to discover whether their chorological behaviour is different or similar. Locations in a number of important(More)
We have conducted a taxonomic study of Cortinarius belleri, C. cistohelvelloides, C. impolitus and C. scobinaceus from material collected in Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and Morocco. Based on anatomy, morphology, ecology and distribution (geographical data) we recognize two species, C. impolitus and C. scobinaceus, and the new combination C. scobinaceus(More)
Monthly litterfall was monitored over a 3-year period in afforested Aleppo pines in the Mediterranean semiarid SE Spain with the aim of determining the long-term response of pines to reductions in tree competition and how this forest practice might influence stand resilience. Three thinning intensities applied 5 years earlier were evaluated (T75 = 75% of(More)
Twelve soil-preparation techniques used in afforestation were applied and 16 environmental variables were measured to test their effects on vegetation abundance, diversity, and cover in semiarid abandoned farmland located in southeastern Spain. The soil-preparation techniques consisted of punctual treatments—making a hole and constructing a plantation bench(More)
Gypsum habitats are widespread globally and are important for biological conservation. Nevertheless, they are often affected by human disturbances and thus require restoration. Sowing and planting have shown positive results, but these actions are usually limited by the lack of native plant material in commercial nurseries, and very little information is(More)
