Introduction
I'm working in a LIFE+ Project call "LIFE Taxus – Restauring Yew Thickets [9580* Mediterranean Taxus baccata Woods" coordinated by QUERCUS (Portuguese National ENGO), monitoring interventions in SIC Peneda-Gerês and Serra da Estrela. Current research interests are mainly on plant species and communities database and mapping.

Urban novel ecosystems were sampled across vacant sites in two Portuguese urban regions. The flora were studied with a focus on spe-cies’ origin, life form, ecological, chorological and naturalisation types. A multivariate constrained ordination technique was used to identify rela-tionships between plant composition and environmental factors. The v...

This paper comprises an overview of the riverine, swamp, floodplain forests and scrub throughout the continent. The team of researchers from various European countries has considered most of the forest habitats from the Canary Islands to European Russia. It was a difficult task to gather all the knowledge about this type of vegetation across the...

In the present work, we studied seven communities occurring in salt marshes in the west of the Iberian Peninsula, mostly ascribable to Sarcocornietea fruticosae class. Three new syntaxa are described: Myriolimo diffusi-Limonietum algarvensis, Triglochino maritimae-Sarcocornietum alpini subass. puccinellietosum maritimae and Limonion lanceolati-alga...

In this paper we propose a syntaxonomic scheme, according to the Code of Phytosociological Nomenclature for the vegetation of Portugal: continental and the Azores and Madeira archipelagos. The scheme encompasses 827 associations (4 communities), 245 alliances, 116 orders, and 64 vegetation classes. The 58 suballiances, 2 suborders and 4 subclasses,...

This paper presents the potential riparian vegetation found in Rio Maior basin. The riparian vegetation is closely linked with the hydrogeomorphological processes and fluvial regimes of the watercourses that drain this complex hydrografic basin. Installed on the border between the limestones of the Lusitanian Meso‐Cenozoic Basin and the sandy‐clay...

In continental Portugal it is generally recognized that the Ria de Aveiro is the coastal limit between Mediterranean and Eurosiberian regions. Considering salt marshes flora and vegetation communities, the Tagus River estuary seems typically Mediterranean, while the Ria de Aveiro lagoon seems typically Eurosiberian, therefore the boundary between t...

A POTENTIAL NATURAL VEGETATION MAP OF CALDAS DA RAINHA . This article presents and discusses a Potential Natural Vegetation (PNV) Map of the Caldas da Rainha Municipality. After outlining the concept, an assessment is made of the conditioning factors that affect the PNV (soil, geology, lithology, bioclimate). A model allowing for the estimation of...

The experience of contemporary urbanity is inescapably marked by the presence of abandonment, ruination and emptiness. Ruins, abandoned buildings and vacant lands are ubiquitous presences in contemporary cities. In Portugal, the model of urban development in the past decades, driven by real estate speculation, led to discontinuous city growth, leaving many vacant lots. With the real estate market crisis, these vacant lands tend to last. On the other hand, new forms of modern ruins have been added to the historic ruins becoming a part of the cityscape: abandoned manufacturing plants, closed cinemas, derelict barracks, dead malls, unfinished real estate projects, etc. These elements are usually seen in a negative way. The ruined city is one of the strongest dystopias of late modernity, with great expression in visual culture (photography, sci-fi movies, comics, electronic games, etc.). Ruins and vacant lands are equated with emptiness, death and disorder. Urban planning has followed this hegemonic sensitivity that demonizes ruins and vacant lands: revitalization of historic centres, regeneration of old industrial areas and urban re-densification strategies in order to rehabilitate the compact city, all have become priorities for the urban policies in the past few decades; an intense desire for erasing ruins and occupying vacant lands is present in all of them. Since the focus has been put in reversing urban ruins and derelicts, little attention has been devoted to the analysis and understanding of the ruination processes and to study of the morphology and abilities of those spaces, namely in Portugal. The Project NoVOID aims to fill this gap.
