Article
Full-text available
Historical factors (colonization scenarios, demographic oscillations) and contemporary processes (population connectivity, current population size) largely contribute to shaping species’ present‐day genetic diversity and structure. In this study, we use a combination of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA markers to understand the role of Quaternary clim...

Amphibians of high mountain lakes face many threats related to global change, including novel pathogens, development, climate change and overexploitation. However, the foremost threat is the presence of non-native fish. One of the objectives of the LIFE+ LIMNOPIRINEUS project (2014-2019) was the recovery of protected amphibian communities (includin...

Conferences are ideal platforms for studying gender gaps in science because they are important cultural events that reflect barriers to women in academia. Here, we explored women’s participation in ecology conferences by analyzing female representation, behavior, and personal experience at the 1st Meeting of the Iberian Society of Ecology (SIBECOL)...
Article
Full-text available
Despite being naturally fishless, the widespread introduction of trout and minnows is threatening the conservation of high mountain lakes all over the world. Previous studies have reported that amphibians quickly disappear after trout introduction, followed by many conspicuous invertebrates. Here, we have studied the effects of minnows versus trout...

The Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus, is a highly invasive species that has been spreading rapidly throughout tropical and temperate regions worldwide since the late 1970s. On the Iberian Peninsula, it was first recorded in 2004 near Barcelona. Since then, the species has spread along the Mediterranean coast and is now colonising the Peninsul...

Multiple Quaternary glacial refugia in the Iberian Peninsula, commonly known as “refugia within refugia”, allowed diverging populations to come into contact and admix, potentially boosting substantial mito-nuclear discordances. In this study, we employ a comprehensive set of mitochondrial and nuclear markers to shed light onto the drivers of geogra...
Article
In order to advance understanding of the current infection status related to the presence of Batrachochytrium spp. in different populations, we tested for the presence/absence (qualitative analysis) of Bd and Bsal in 13 monitored populations and measured the Bd infection loads (quantitative analysis) of 16 populations of the Pyrenean Brook Newt in...

The Pyrenean sculpin (Cottus hispaniolensis) is one of the most threatened freshwater fish in Catalonia and Spain. Its status in the Aran Valley drastically deteriorated as a result of the floods of 2013, to the point of reaching its practical disappearance. Since then, their populations have been progressively recovering, with a slow increase in t...

Abstract The LIFE+ LimnoPirineus project (2014-2019) includes the recovery of amphibian populations in eight lakes of Aigü estortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park and Alt Pirineu Natural Park, by eradicating or controlling non-native fish. During the summers from 2014-2018 practically all of the fish present in the lakes were removed. We fo...

Riassunto. Il genere Lepus è distribuito in tutte le Alpi. Esso comprende L. europaeus e L. timidus. La prima si distribuisce sul fondovalle mentre la seconda vive principalmente in alta quota. Mentre lo status di L. europaeus non desta particolare preoccupazione, L. timidus pare in declino. Per entrambe le specie nel territorio della provincia di...

Riassunto. Allo scopo di fornire indicazioni utili alla gestione del prelievo venatorio e dare un quadro generale circa l'andamento di popolazione della lepre bianca, Lepus timidus, in provincia di Belluno, sono stati raccolti dati sul sesso e sull'età di un campione di capi abbattuti durante la stagione venatoria 2016 e sono stati esaminati gli ab...

All’interno del Parco Nazionale Dolomiti Bellunesi (PNDB) coesistono due specie del genere Lepus: la lepre bianca, Lepus timidus varronis, e la lepre europea, Lepus europaeus. La lepre bianca risulta essere presente in modo marcatamente frammentato nelle Dolomiti e soprattutto nelle Prealpi Venete. Al fine di studiare la presenza e la distribuzione...

A partire dalla stagione venatoria 2016 è stato introdotto nel regolamento venatorio provinciale di Belluno il controllo da parte della Polizia Provinciale di tutti i capi di lepre bianca abbattuti. Allo scopo di effettuare considerazioni per il monitoraggio dello status della popolazione, sono stati raccolti dati sul sesso e sull’età degli animali...

1. Chromatic disorders in bats are being reported worldwide at an increasing rate. However, there is widespread misunderstanding and misuse of the associated terminology and concepts in the scientific literature. We conducted an extensive assessment and standardisation of published and unpublished cases of chromatic disorders in bats worldwide. 2....

Through standardized censuses carried out between April and August 2010 we examined the butterfly (Rhopalocera) fauna at 7 hay meadow sites within the agricultural-urban mosaic landscape of the higher Venetian Plain (Treviso province, northeastern Italy). A total of 31 species were recorded, 27 of which were likely to reproduce inside the fields or...

Project
2-year project that aims at investigating: Presence and distribution of the mountain hare in the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park. Main methods and aims: - Data collection through: collection of historical data from the National Park, the Province of Belluno and the State Forestry Corp; interviews to hunters, photographers and visitors of the Park; surveys of indirect signs of presence of the species (e.g. tracks, pellets); camera trapping - GIS mapping - Discrimination between mountain hare and European hare (Lepus europaeus) pellets through hair analysis of droppings Age and population structure of mountain hare populations in the Belluno province. Main methods and aims: - Determination of age though dry eye lens weight - Comparison of dry eye lens weight with two other indicators of age: visual estimation and Stroh-sign - Analysis of culling rates in the period 1990-2017 - Collection of tissue and hair samples to implement a gene bank of the species
