El seguimiento de los ecosistemas con imágenes procedentes del sensor MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, espectroradiómetro de imágenes de resolución media) está actualmente muy extendido tanto en tareas de investigación como de gestión. Los índices de vegetación NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, índice de vegetación...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Biodiversity patterns had been frequently evaluated using structural and compositional components at the species level, but seldom using functional attributes at the ecosystem level. However, ecosystem functioning is central for conservation because global change effects are better perceived using functional traits at the ecosystem level. Transitio...
Chapter
Full-text available
Policymakers and ecologists are appealing for a comprehensive understanding of how protected areas reconcile biodiversity and carbon conservation strategies. Satellite-based functional characterization of ecosystems offers the possibility of exploring the gaps and spatial congruence between biodiversity and carbon conservation priorities using comm...
Article
Biological soil crusts (biocrusts) form a regular and relevant feature in drylands, as they stabilize the soil, fix nutrients, and influence water cycling. However, biocrust forming organisms have been shown to be dramatically vulnerable to climate and land use change occurring in these regions. In this study, we used Normalized Difference Vegetati...
Article
Full-text available
Large-scale ecological variations across Earth have important consequences for biodiversity and, therefore, forbiological conservation. Despite the widespread use of ecological maps in conservation schemes, they have been based mainly on structural and compositional features but scarcely on functional dimensions of life. Incorporating functional va...
Preprint
Full-text available
Conservation Biology faces the challenge of safeguarding the ecosystem functions and ecological processes (water cycle, nutrients, energy flow, and community dynamics) that sustain the multiple facets of biodiversity. Characterization and evaluation of these processes and functions can be carried out through functional attributes or traits related...
Article
Full-text available
Conservation biology must set geographic conservation priorities not only based on the compositional or structural but also on the functional dimensions of biodiversity. However, assessing functional diversity is challenging at the regional scale. We propose the use of satellite-derived Ecosystem Functional Types (EFTs), defined here as patches of...

Abstract. Conservation Biology faces the challenge of safeguarding the ecological processes that sustain biodiversity. Characterization and evaluation of these processes can be carried out through attributes or functional traits related to the exchanges of matter and energy between vegetation and the atmosphere. Nowadays, the use of satellite image...
Chapter
Las perspectivas de conservación de la biodiversidad han evolucionado desde puntos de vista centrados en las especies y los ecosistemas prístinos, hacia enfoques que reconocen la complejidad de las relaciones entre los humanos y la naturaleza. Ello ha llevado a la generación de conflictos y debates que deben ser resueltos para poner en marcha polít...
Article
Full-text available
Monitoring temporal trends in ecosystem functioning of protected areas (PAs) provides important knowledge of local and regional ecological responses to both environmental and anthropogenic drivers of change. Understanding such changes constitute a great global effort to preserve biodiversity and ecosystem services. We characterized the inter-annual...
Article
Full-text available
As climate change is expected to have a significant impact on species distributions, there is an urgent challenge to provide reliable information to guide conservation biodiversity policies. In addressing this challenge, we propose a remote sensing-based approach to forecast the future habitat quality for European badger, a species not abundant and...

Presentation
Full-text available
As climate change is expected to have a significant impact on species distributions, there is an urgent challenge to provide reliable information to guide conservation biodiversity policies. In addressing this challenge, we propose a novel remote sensing-based approach to forecast the future habitat quality for European badger, a species not abunda...
Poster
Full-text available
Rainfall is the main limiting factor of the primary production in most of the drylands regions around the world. However, in areas dominated by phreatophytic vegetation this constraint cannot be direct. This vegetation had deep roots and is able to use groundwater, showing higher productivity than expected, particularly during the driest season of...
Article
Full-text available
La gestión de las áreas protegidas en el actual contexto de cambio global requiere de aproximaciones que permitan caracterizar y seguir el funcionamiento de los ecosistemas. La teledetección ofrece herramientas para ello, ya que proporciona índices que informan reiteradamente y para grandes porciones de territorio, de los intercambios de materia y...

Addressing global change effects in conservation of biodiversity and ecosystem functions and services requires innovative approaches to ecosystem monitoring. Here we present a monitoring system to guide the evaluation of ecosystem health and conservation status of the Spanish National Parks Network (OAPN) using satellite variables. The implementati...

Article
Full-text available
Management of protected areas in the current context of global change requires approaches to characterize and to monitor ecosystem functioning. Remote sensing provides adequate tools for that because it provides indices that inform repeatedly and for large areas of land, about matter and energy exchanges between the biota and land sur1face. Conside...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The protected area of Sierra Nevada is a hotspot of biodiversity in the Mediterranean Basin. It is facing environmental changes that threaten its conservation. To assess the effect of these changes on the functioning of the Sierra Nevada ecosystems, we applied a remote sensing monitoring system. We used the 2001-2003 time-series for the Enhanced Ve...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Maintaining ecosystem functions and services requires innovative approaches to ecosystem monitoring. The incorporation of functional attributes of biodiversity into monitoring programs complements the approaches based on ecosystem structure and composition. Ecosystem functioning attributes have the advantage of showing a quicker response to environ...

Project
The project aims to mitigate the negative effect of Climate Change on key ecosystem services that three iconic and representative Mediterranean Natural Protected Areas (from now on NPAs) provide to local inhabitants and their socioeconomic sector: • a Mediterranean wetland, Doñana Nature Space (Nature & National Park and Biosphere Reserve) • a Mediterranean high mountain range, Sierra Nevada Nature Space. • and a subdesertic Mediterranean coastal area, Cabo de Gata Nature Park.
