Preprint
In recent years, an extended body of literature has focused on the importance of temporal dynamics in shaping the structure of plant and pollinator communities and their interactions. This improvement from a previously static perspective to community analysis has allowed us to understand many of the ecological processes that shape these communities...

El lentisco (Pistacia lentiscus L., Anacardiaceae) es uno de los arbustos más abundantes y característicos de la cuenca Mediterránea. Sus frutos, tipo drupa, son el principal reclamo y fuente alimenticia de los frugívoros invernantes de esta región estableciendo una interacción muy importante planta-animal, pero el cambio del uso del suelo y la poc...
Article
The study of epigenetics, stable chemical changes that do not involve changes in the sequence of nucleotides, has greatly advanced in recent years. These changes can be shaped by the environment and can be inherited into the following generations. There is growing evidence that the inherited variation in ecologically relevant traits can be generate...

Epigenetic factors are increasingly being viewed as important mechanisms in organism performance. However, advances in plant epigenetics rely mostly on studies of short-lived model or cultivated species and there is a current gap in knowledge on wild plants, especially on woody plant species, that still needs to be addressed via empirical studies....

By means of DNA barcoding and microsatellite analyses, we studied the species and individuals of legitimate seed dispersers of the Mediterranean shrub Pistacia lentiscus, a keystone species that represents the main source of food in winter for frugivorous birds. We collected dropping of birds containing seeds, and after DNA extraction we amplified...

Helianthemum is the largest, most widely distributed and most taxonomically complex genus of the Cistaceae. To examine the intrageneric phylogenetic relationships in Helianthemum, we used sequence data from plastid DNA (ndhF, psbA-trnH, trnL-trnF) and the nuclear ITS region. The ingroup consisted of 95 species and subspecies (2 subgenera, 10 sectio...

INTRODUCTION Helianthemum is the largest and the most widely distributed genus in the family Cistaceae(120 taxa). It is characterized by complex systematics and taxonomy. The Old World genusHelianthemum has been considereda close relative of the New World genus Crocanthemum(Guzmán & Vargas, 2009), having even been treated as a single genus(Dunal, 1...

Seed dispersal plays a crucial role in natural forest regeneration. Changes in the seed rain due to anthropogenic habitat alteration can influence seedling recruitment patterns and affect the evolutionary dynamics of populations. Using a combined endocarp-embryo microsatellite assay of naturally dispersed seeds, we concomitantly quantify the contri...

We have studied the effect of goat grazing on the shrub understory of a pine forest situated in a pro�tected area (Doñana Natural Park). Along three years we have studied the changes in phytovolume, flamma�bility, species richness and diversity in a grazed shrubland and in a control area not grazed by the goats. We studied also food preferences of...

We have sequenced the nuclear DNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS1+5.8S+ITS2) from samples collected in the field belonging to all taxa of Helianthemum in the Iberian Peninsula and analysed the data matrix by both Bayesian and Maximum Likelihood approaches. The phylogenetic hypothesis that we present here provides strong support for the monophyly...

This article documents the addition of 234 microsatellite marker loci to the Molecular Ecology Resources Database. Loci were developed for the following species: Acipenser sinensis, Aleochara bilineata, Aleochara bipustulata, Barbus meridionalis, Colossoma macropomum, Delia radicum, Drosophila nigrosparsa, Fontainea picrosperma, Helianthemum cinere...

nergy is a major limiting factor in animal production. To plan the management of a herd in extensive grazing it is essential tomonitor and understand the energy balances, in order to optimize fodder supplements. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the diet selection and to quantify the energy balance of domestic goats (Payoya goat) under...
Article
From 2007, a project was carried out concerning the use of goat grazing to improve the understory shrub vegetation of the Doñana pine forest. To understand this plant-animal interaction, the evolution of the vegetation and the nature of the grazing were studied. This grazing, in addition to significantly reducing the shrub biomass with a consequent...
