Article
Full-text available
Soil loss called also soil erosion is one of the most irreversible natural phenomena that affect the topsoil of Earth’s surface worldwide, as it causes soil fertility reduction, water availability decrease, and initiation of geo-hazards, which leads to negative repercussions on agricultural production, considered the main source of income for most...
Article
Full-text available
In Morocco, desertification affects a large area. It is more pronounced as the climate is arid with increasingly a long drought and poor soils that are highly vulnerable to erosion. In addition, the precarious living conditions of rural populations grow to overuse natural resources to meet their growing needs, which amplifies further environmental...
Article
Full-text available
Morocco's drylands cover over 90% of the land area; low and irregular rainfall and high potential evaporation contribute to extremely high-water deficits in this area. These phenomena have significantly impacted rangeland hydrology and nomadic and transhumant pastoralism. To adapt to this predominant water deficit, the inhabitants of these areas ha...
Article
Full-text available
Moistube technology, widely known as nano-irrigation, is starting to gain popularity lately in Morocco compared to other buried irrigation systems made up of porous tubes. However, the technology remains unknown with installation difficulties for professionals, and only a few demonstration trials, and rarely scientific trials are conducted to demon...
Conference Paper
Moroccan forests, through the provision of goods and ecosystem services, underpins benefits to local communities and play a crucial role for rural area development. The legal framework recognizes to people, living near public forests, the right to graze their domestic livestock. Over the years, the grazing pressure is at levels far beyond the fores...
Article
Full-text available
Erosion affects large parts of Moroccan land, particularly in the mountains leading to soil quality deterioration and less vegetation cover. Located in the Southwest of Morocco, the Site of Biological and Ecological Interest (SBEI) of Ain Asmama, where erosion threatens a major part of the region was investigated. The site has a terraced transition...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, the maximum entropy (MaxEnt) algorithm was applied to estimate the current and potential distributions of cork oak (Quercus suber L.) in the Maarmora forest of Morocco to provide a basis for its conservation under climate change conditions in the Mediterranean basin. A total of 1,428 field-based spatial records of cork oak locations...
Article
Full-text available
Assessments of ecosystem service and function losses of wetlandscapes (i.e., wetlands and their hydrological catchments) suffer from knowledge gaps regarding impacts of ongoing hydro-climatic change. This study investigates hydro-climatic changes during 1976–2015 in 25 wetlandscapes distributed across the world’s tropical, arid, temperate and cold...
Article
Full-text available
Water erosion causes significant economic losses linked mainly to the silting up of dams and losses in soil productivity, these consequences will increase if soil and water conservation actions associated with development actions are not undertaken. The present work aims to evaluate the water erosion in the basin of the Beni Boufrah located in the...
Article
Full-text available
Le changement climatique constitue un grand défi à relever par les politiques publiques et les gestionnaires des espaces naturels. La compréhension de ses impacts sur les écosystèmes forestiers constitue un préalable nécessaire à toute réflexion visant leur conservation et le maintien des services écosystémiques qu’ils offrent. Cette étude s’est in...
Article
Full-text available
Climate change is a major challenge for public policies and the management of natural areas. Understanding its impacts on forest ecosystems is essential to undertake any policy-making for their conservation and preservation of their ecosystem services. This study focused on modelling the potential distribution of Cedrus atlantica Manetti, by identi...
Data
Geography and associated hydrological, hydroclimate and land use conditions and their changes determine 42 the states and dynamics of wetlands and their ecosystem services. The influences of these controls are not limited to 43 just the local scale of each individual wetland, but extend over larger landscape areas that integrate multiple wetlands 4...

Article
Full-text available
Wetlands are often vital physical and social components of a country's natural capital, as well as providers of ecosystem services to local and national communities. We performed a network analysis to prioritize Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets for sustainable development in iconic wetlands and wetlandscapes around the world. The analysis...
