- How are these changes affecting the socio-economic system and the capacity to provide ecosystem services?
- Are these changes in the Cantabrian Cordillera generalizable to all of it?
- What other problems affect calluna heaths besides the abandonment of traditional uses?
- What are the actual loads of N deposition in the southern heath of the Cordillera Cantábrica?
- How is N distributed among the different compartments of the ecosystem?
- What are the effects of different nitrogen loads on heath functioning, taking into account the time scale of deposition and callumar age?
- What is the critical load?
- How is the control of herbivores?
How to manage these scrub ecosystems to conserve their biodiversity and ecosystem services?Scientifically based management recommendations.
Management bases - rejuvenation - in spatial distribution (mosaics)
Should prescribed burning be proposed as a management mechanism in "increased nitrogen deposition" global change scenarios?
Influence of the moment when the fire occurs.
Influence of the dominant tree species
Systems dominated by resprouting species recover faster and therefore have less risk of soil loss due to erosion
Do the resprouting species also see the germination of
their seeds stimulated after the fire?
Requires high exposure times at temperatures above 70º.
What is the reproductive behavior of the obligatory germinating species in the face of fire?
Influence of the zone of origin in the germination of the seeds of Pinus pinaster
Post-fire regeneration in Pinus pinaster populations after a single fire
Post-fire regeneration of the Pinus pinaster understory community after a single fire
How are the systems dominated by Pinus pinaster affected under different fire and weather conditions?
Spatial patterns of serverity
Validation of severity and search for medium-term indicators
Effects of recurrence and severity on soil characteristics
Effects of recurrence and severity on the plant community
Patterns of change in pine seedlings and shrubs as a function of recurrence and severity
Fires over 10,000 ha use of new tools (satellite images) to predict spatial variation of post-fire regeneration
How is the extrapolation of predictive models between different climate conditions?
