Effects of artificial shading and weed mowing in reforestation of Mediterranean abandoned cropland with contrasting Quercus species
Large areas of abandoned cropland in the world can be reforested with native shrubs and trees to gain a number of environmental benefits. In abandoned Mediterranean croplands, establishment andExpand
Invasion of alien Acacia dealbata on Spanish Quercus robur forests: Impact on soils and vegetation
The results suggest that A. dealbata invasion produces a deep impact on Q. robur forests that hampers their regeneration, even after A.dealbata removal. Expand
Trends and fluctuations in species abundance and richness in Mediterranean annual pastures
Floristic data collected from permanent plots dur- ing 14 consecutive years are used to model the frequency of the 62 most abundant species in relation to post-ploughing succession, topography andExpand
Vegetation succession in reclaimed coal-mining slopes in a Mediterranean-dry environment
Abstract Mining reclamation results obtained in the Teruel coalfield (Mediterranean-dry Spain) during the last 30 years have been quite limited. In order to improve restoration operations weExpand

The different germination patterns of the species can provide competitive advantages depending on the autumn weather conditions, and this sensitivity was manifested in both the total germination success and the germination time profile. Expand
Vegetative filter strips to control sediment movement in forest plantations : validation of a simple model using field data
A field study of sediment movement through vegetative barriers was carried out to assess the sediment-trapping effectiveness of vegetative barrier types typically used in forest forest plantationExpand
Water-related ecological impacts of rill erosion processes in Mediterranean-dry reclaimed slopes
Abstract Soil moisture is considered the main limiting factor governing the structure and dynamics of vegetation in drylands. Soil erosion is perceived as a critical process affecting these systems,Expand
Ecohydrological Source‐Sink Interrelationships between Vegetation Patches and Soil Hydrological Properties along a Disturbance Gradient Reveal a Restoration Threshold
Vegetation, soil, and hydrology in drylands often collectively exhibit strong ecohydrological interrelationships in which vegetation both influences and is influenced by runoff, particularly on sitesExpand
Simulated effects of herb competition on planted Quercus faginea seedlings in Mediterranean abandoned cropland
Abstract We tested simulated effects of herb competition on the performance of planted seedlings of Quercus faginea ssp. faginea in Mediterranean abandoned cropland. We produced three types ofExpand
