Resolving species delimitation issues of European Cantharellus is crucial to correctly name chanterelles around the globe. Thirty names referring to Cantharellus s. str. have been described in Europe, some of which are used in other continents. Based on combined analyses of ITS2, LSU, RPB2 and TEF-1, merely eight species are here recognized in Euro...

In July 2018 the Spanish Ministry for Ecological Transition announced the approval of the first List of Extinct Species in Spain that establishes which locally extinct species will enjoy public support and legal status as autochthonous taxa for their reintroduction in the wild. In despite of European Bison Conservation Center and IUCN experts advis...

The Red squirrel is a species that came to populate historically the entire Iberian Peninsula. However, in Andalusia there are currently only two important populations: Sierra Nevada and Sierra de Cazorla y Segura. During the last decades these populations have naturally increased their distribution area without leaving the provincial limits. In th...

We analysed entry frequencies (raids) of wild boar in three different golf courses in the Costa del Sol (Málaga, Spain) during the 2020-2022 period. We compared raid frequencies during periods with COVID restrictions to the frequencies during times of normal access to the facilities. We used camera-trapping to monitor wild boar movement onto the go...
Conference Paper
Durante el periodo 2018-2021 muestreamos la presencia y uso por parte de la nutria de 20 puertos en el litoral entre Cádiz y Granada. El 55% resultó positivo, con un uso frecuente de algo más de la mitad, mientras que en el resto el uso es más esporádico. Las nutrias usan los embarcaderos y docks de motos de agua como lugares de alimentación y marc...
Conference Paper
La presencia de nutrias en campos de golf se ha relacionado con el uso estacional de recursos durante el periodo estival. Durante el periodo 2018-2021 muestreamos un total de 46 campos de golf en la Costa del Sol (Málaga), realizando un seguimiento continuo mediante fototrampeo y búsquedas de rastros estacionales. Encontramos evidencias de presenci...

Los medios urbanos son nuevos hábitats en los que diferentes especies se adentran cada vez más. La disponibilidad de alimento subsidiado, las nuevas oportunidades y la falta o menor abundancia de competidores y depredadores son algunos de los factores causales. Por sus peculiaridades, los medios urbanos suponen uno de los retos para la conservación...

We monitored the incidence of predation behavior in Eurasian otters ( Lutra lutra ) from urban ponds in southern Spain, following reports of the mustelids’ presence in various urban locations. In one of the case studies, 30 small common carp and 35 Koi fish were released in May 2017 and April 2018, respectively, into two different ponds. Otters ext...

Las invasiones biológicas llevan siglos ocurriendo. En la actualidad, el comercio y los intensos procesos migratorios humanos han acelerado y facilitado los procesos por los que una especie exótica se introduce y extiende en un área geográfica que está fuera de su distribución natural. El transporte, la pesca, la caza, la jardinería, la agricultura...

La comarca de la Costa del Sol Occidental es un destino turístico de sol y playa re- conocido a nivel mundial. No es tan conocido que los once municipios que cons- tituyen esta comarca natural de Málaga albergan una serie de espacios naturales protegidos que ofrecen importantes oportunidades para el turismo de naturaleza y de observación de fauna,...

Between 2017 and 2018 we monitored the survival of two populations of carps released in two ponds in an urban park in the municipality of Benahavís (Málaga, Spain). The park was near to an area with otters (the Guadalmina River). Since these mustelids can use artificial ponds as pantries during the Mediterranean summer, we expected to find predatio...

En julio de 2018, el Ministerio para la Transición Ecológica anunciaba la aprobación del Listado de especies extinguidas en España que establece qué taxones localmente extintos disfrutarán de apoyo público y estatus legal como especies autóctonas para su reintroducción en la naturaleza. A pesar de la petición expresa del Centro Europeo de Conservac...

Resumen: El macizo peridotítico de Sierra Bermeja reúne unas condiciones geográficas y geológicas, en un ambiente mediterráneo, que pone en situación límite a la fauna. Ésta debe enfrentarse a la escasez de nutrientes y elevada concentración de metales tóxicos en el sustrato ultramáfico, suelos muchas veces raquíticos, un abrupto relieve, fuertes v...

Una nueva población de pez fraile, especie considerada en peligro crítico de extinción en Andalucía, ha sido encontrada en el río Guadalmansa, un cauce protegido por la Red Natura 2000 que recorre la malagueña Sierra Bermeja. El hallazgo acentúa el impacto del proyecto urbanístico que está previsto llevar a cabo junto al mismo tramo fluvial habitad...

The river Guadaiza runs from north to south along 20 km through the central area of the range Sierra Bermeja, in the province of Malaga (Spain), before it flows into the Mediterranean. This river has substantial differences between the upper-middle courses, and the lower one. Thus the upper two thirds of Guadaiza belong to the range Sierra Bermeja...

Question
Querida Cristina:
Eu li o seu estudo 'Impact of an oceanic port (Sines, Portugal) on the fish community'', é muito interessante. Gostaria de saber se você conhece outros estudos semelhantes comparando densidades ou tamanhos de peixes dentro e fora dos portos. Estamos trabalhando em um paper de um porto na costa da Andaluzia e qualquer referência desse tipo seria muito útil para nós.
Obrigado.
Cordialmente,
Diego Rodríguez

Project
Preparation of the Management Plans specifically designed for the sites integrated in the Emerald Network in Ratcha, Greater Caucasus, Georgia, to establish the necessary conservation measures involving appropriate statutory, administrative or contractual measures which correspond to the ecological requirements of the natural habitat types in Annex I and the species in Annex II present on the sites.
Project
- Collect and analyse existing data on Ratcha I (GE0000011), Ratcha 2 (GE0000040), Ratcha 3 (GE0000041) and Ratcha 4 (GE0000042) for Emerald Network. - Perform field research in the target sites to gather data on the presence of the habitats and species from resolution #4 on listing endangered natural habitats requiring specific conservation measures and #6 on listing species requiring specific habitat conservation measures adopted by the Standing Committee of the Bern Convention. - Produce distribution maps for selected species and habitats in GIS format compatible with the Bern Convention standards. - Update SDFs for Ratcha I (GE0000011), Ratcha 2 (GE0000040), Ratcha 3 (GE0000041) and Ratcha 4 (GE0000042) - Finalise the boundaries Ratcha I (GE0000011), Ratcha 2 (GE0000040), Ratcha 3 (GE0000041) and Ratcha 4 (GE0000042) and create GIS maps.
Project
The Red squirrel is a species that came to populate historically the entire Iberian Peninsula. However, in Andalusia there are currently only two important populations: Sierra Nevada and Sierra de Cazorla y Segura. In the seventies the species was reintroduced in the province of Málaga, with the release of a few specimens in the Montes de Málaga Natural Park. Forty years later, the Red squirrel is a frequent species that has expanded its distribution area outside the natural park, reaching the urban space and forest areas of the Málaga capital city. Red squirrels are now more than 15 kilometers far away from their nucleus of origin and have reached almost to urban parks near to beaches. The aims of this project is to estimate the actual actual distribution of the species, its zonal densities and the environmental factors that have driven the expansion of the species as well.
