Genetic structure and differentiation of the endemic Bolle’s Laurel Pigeon (Columba bollii) in the Canary Islands

This study suggests that the evolutionary history of C. bollii is closely related to the geological past of these oceanic islands and the distribution range of its habitat, the laurel forest, according to metapopulation structure.

The 2021 eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcanic ridge on La Palma, Canary Islands

Almost exactly half a century after the eruption of the Teneguía Volcano on La Palma (26 October to 28 November 1971), a new eruption occurred on the island and lasted for 85 days from 19 September



Chronostratigraphy of Gran Canaria

A chronostratigraphy of Miocene/Pliocene volcanism on Gran Canaria (Canary Islands) has been established by single- crystal 40Ar/39Ar laser dating of feldspar crystals from 58 samples of welded

Mécanismes au foyer des séismes du Maroc et des régions voisines (1959-1986). Conséquences tectoniques

Dans cette etude, 19 mecanismes au foyer de seismes marocains sont presentes, parmi lesquels 13 sont nouveaux et 6 sont revises. Ces mecanismes, en plus de ceux etudies par d'autres auteurs,

Chapter 12 Eruptive frequency and volcanic hazards zonation in São Miguel Island, Azores

Abstract São Miguel Island comprises five active volcanic systems, including three central volcanoes with calderas and two basaltic fissure systems. Volcanic eruptions in São Miguel are of basaltic

Oxygen isotopes in the Azores islands: Crustal assimilation recorded

Oxygen isotope ratios of olivine have become a widely used tool for the study of magmatic systems, especially in the interpretation of source heterogeneities in mantle plume–derived ocean island

The magma plumbing system for the 1971 Teneguía eruption on La Palma, Canary Islands

The 1971 Teneguía eruption is the most recent volcanic event of the Cumbre Vieja rift zone on La Palma. The eruption produced basanite lavas that host xenoliths, which we investigate to provide

Detection of the Gilsa Geomagnetic Polarity Event on the Island of Madeira

The paleomagnetism and potassium-argon ages of ten basaltic lavas from the island of Madeira have been investigated. Eight of the lavas are in a single sequence, which also contains three distinct

Lava balloons—peculiar products of basaltic submarine eruptions

Between December 1998 and April 2001, a submarine basaltic eruption occurred west of Terceira Island, Azores (Portugal) in water depths between 300 and 1,000 m. Physical evidence for the eruption was
