This study characterized and mapped the spatial variability patterns of seven topsoil heavy metals (Cr, Ni, Pb, Cu, Zn, Hg and Cd) within the Ebro river basin (9.3 million ha) by Multivariate Factorial Kriging. The variograms and cross-variograms of heavy metal concentrations showed the presence of multiscale variation that was modeled using three variogram(More)
Increasing plant size has been considered a way to improve survival and growth of planted containerized stock under dry conditions. Additionally, deep planting provides advantages to seedlings in dry areas because roots are placed deeper into the soil where there is likely more water available. In this study, we tested the effect of Zizyphus lotus stock(More)
We report a patient with Enterococcus faecalis native-valve endocarditis who relapsed after 4 weeks of treatment with ampicillin plus gentamicin. The relapse was cured with ampicillin plus ceftriaxone, which was introduced after gentamicin-induced acute renal failure. This double beta-lactam combination showed a bactericidal effect in time-killing curve(More)

Crown defoliation is extensively monitored across European forests within the International Co-operative Programme (ICP) as a proxy of forest health. Climate warming and drought are assumed to be the major drivers of tree growth and crown defoliation, particularly in seasonally dry areas such as the Mediterranean Basin. Here we analyse how climate, drought,(More)
Cuttings of five Populus alba clones (S18 F1-26, Al29 F8-35, J3 F1-4, GU1 F16-36, PO9 F21-88), Populus euphratica, and Populus×euramericana (I-214) were submitted during 45 d to regular watering with NaCl solutions of electrical conductivity of 7 and 14 dS m−1. Chlorophyll a fluorescence in response to the salinity stress was assessed, using F0 and Fv/Fm.(More)
