El paisaje subalpino estudiado traduce una fuerte heterogeneidad ambiental ligada al relieve y al fuerte impacto dejado por la explotación silvo-pastoral tradicional, de forma que la cubierta vegetal ha variado relativamente poco después del abandono progresivo de las prácticas de explotación durante el pasado siglo. Los bosques de nueva formación ocupan superficies pequeñas, correspondientes a antiguas perturbaciones sobre bosque preexistente (tala, incendio) o a invasión de pastos o… Expand

Tree Sapling Responses to 10 Years of Experimental Manipulation of Temperature, Nutrient Availability, and Shrub Cover at the Pyrenean Treeline
The findings indicated that the interactive effects of several key abiotic and biotic drivers associated with global change should be investigated simultaneously for understanding the contribution of young trees to treeline dynamics. Expand
Subalpine forest dynamics reconstructed throughout the last 700 years in the Central Pyrenees by means of tree rings and pollen
Understanding how climate has modulated forest growth and composition in the past is necessary to predict the influence of the ongoing climate warming on the dynamics of mountain forests. We studiedExpand
High mountain palaeoecology and palaeolimnology fo central pyrenees, based on pollen and diatom analyses
High-mountain ranges are suitable ecosystems for studying local environmental shifts driven by large-scale climate changes. Sedimentary records obtained from those regions contain information thatExpand
Vaccinium myrtillus stands show similar structure and functioning under different scenarios of coexistence at the Pyrenean treeline
The results indicate that V. myrtillus competes for nutrients with its neighbours, but neither this competition nor the lower WUE affect its above-ground performance, and should not be considered as a key driver on the dynamics of this species in the encroachment of subalpine grasslands. Expand
Encroachment of shrubs into subalpine grasslands in the Pyrenees changes the plant-soil stoichiometry spectrum
Aims Shrub encroachment has been reported over a large proportion of the subalpine grasslands across Europe and is expected to have an important impact on the biogeochemical cycle of theseExpand

Changes of vegetal cover in the Aragonese western Pyrenees are shown throughout the last 50 years. The evolution is characterized by a generalised revegetation process with an advance of shrubs andExpand
Land‐use changes as major drivers of mountain pine (Pinus uncinata Ram.) expansion in the Pyrenees
Aim To assess the spatial patterns of forest expansion (encroachment and densification) for mountain pine (Pinus uncinata Ram.) during the last 50 years at a whole mountain range scale by the studyExpand
Patterns of plant traits in Pyrenean alpine vegetation
Abstract Here we studied the adaptation of plant communities to environment in the alpine belt of the Catalan Pyrenees through comparative analysis of plant traits. The starting point consisted ofExpand
Shrub encroachment into mesic mountain grasslands in the Iberian peninsula: Effects of plant quality and temperature on soil C and N stocks
[1] This paper aims at understanding the effect that shrub encroachment into mesic mountain grasslands has on soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks. Thus we compared organic C and N contents in contiguousExpand
Plant diversity across five vegetation belts in the Pyrenees (Catalonia, Spain)
The size and habitat partitioning of the vascular floras of five areas of the NE Iberian Peninsula, representing five distinct vegetation belts and three floristic regions, shows changes clearly reduce the extent of secondary habitats, and thus lead to population reduction and fragmentation, and eventually local extinction of the most rare species in these habitats.

Enhanced soil fertility under Juniperus communis in arctic ecosystems
It is shown that juniper facilitates the formation of islands of soil fertility that may in turn facilitate the growth of other plants and positively influence the long term recovery of heath tundra ecosystems following disturbance. Expand
Land-use changes and sustainable development in mountain areas: a case study in the Spanish Pyrenees
Land-use changes affecting Mediterranean mountains represent the intensification of use in valley bottoms, accompanied by land-use conflicts, and a generalized abandonment of the hillslopes, which inExpand
