Trading-off fish biodiversity, food security, and hydropower in the Mekong River Basin
The Mekong River Basin, site of the biggest inland fishery in the world, is undergoing massive hydropower development. Planned dams will block critical fish migration routes between the river'sExpand
Ecosystem services in Mediterranean river basin: climate change impact on water provisioning and erosion control.
The Mediterranean basin is considered one of the most vulnerable regions of the world to climate change and such changes impact the capacity of ecosystems to provide goods and services to humanExpand
Model development for the assessment of terrestrial and aquatic habitat quality in conservation planning.
There is a growing pressure of human activities on natural habitats, which leads to biodiversity losses. To mitigate the impact of human activities, environmental policies are developed andExpand
Recent Amazon climate as background for possible ongoing and future changes of Amazon humid forests
Recent analyses of Amazon runoff and gridded precipitation data suggest an intensification of the hydrological cycle over the past few decades in the following sense: wet season precipitation andExpand
Responses to salinity of grapevine plants with split root systems.
Grape yield, shoot and root vigour and water use by grapevine plants with split root systems were investigated. Some plants had both root parts continuously irrigated either with fresh or with salineExpand
Resilience and stability in bird guilds across tropical countryside
The consequences of biodiversity decline in intensified agricultural landscapes hinge on surviving biotic assemblages. Maintaining crucial ecosystem processes and services requires resilience toExpand
Pervasive Rise of Small-scale Deforestation in Amazonia
Understanding forest loss patterns in Amazonia, the Earth’s largest rainforest region, is critical for effective forest conservation and management. Following the most detailed analysis to date,Expand
Global malnutrition overlaps with pollinator-dependent micronutrient production
Pollinators contribute around 10% of the economic value of crop production globally, but the contribution of these pollinators to human nutrition is potentially much higher. Crops vary in the degreeExpand
Empirical validation of the InVEST water yield ecosystem service model at a national scale.
A variety of tools have emerged with the goal of mapping the current delivery of ecosystem services and quantifying the impact of environmental changes. An important and often overlooked question isExpand
Assessment of the water supply:demand ratios in a Mediterranean basin under different global change scenarios and mitigation alternatives.
Spatial differences in the supply and demand of ecosystem services such as water provisioning often imply that the demand for ecosystem services cannot be fulfilled at the local scale, but it can beExpand
