Introduction
A French naturalist living in the Valle del Genal, Serranía de Ronda (Malaga, Andalusia, Spain). My main interest is invertebrate conservation (both terrestrial and aquatic). I am commited with citizen science, organizing training courses and co-coordinating the Andalusian Dragonfly Recording Scheme (ROLA). I am editing "Boletín ROLA" and "Arvícola" a journal on the River Guadalquivir biodiversity. I have recently iniciated the Genal Field Station project, a private iniciative for studying biodiversity at the Genal Valley and surrounding mountain ranges. This area is one of the most dramatic mediterranean landscape. http://aeaelbosqueanimado.org/gfs

The second Andalusian atlas of dragonflies is presented, updating the publication of the first in 1984. This work is based on the subsequent literature review and data of ROLA's recording scheme. For each species, a map represents the last period in which its presence has been detected (prior to 1984, 1984-2000, after 2000).

Aim Poleward range shifts of species are among the most obvious effects of climate change on biodiversity. As a consequence of these range shifts, species communities are predicted to become increasingly composed of warm‐dwelling species, but this has only been studied for a limited number of taxa, mainly birds, butterflies and plants. As species g...

Onychogomphus costae is an Ibero-Maghrebian endemic, which is rare in the Ibe-rian Peninsula. This study updates its distribution in Andalusia, southern Spain, based on a targeted survey carried out in 2015-2017 and the compilation of all available records. The species appears to be more widespread than previously documented, with a core distributi...
Presentation

After four decades without news of Zygonyx torridus (Kirby, 1889) in the province of Cordoba (Andalusia), a recent sighting has led to repeated visits to the Guadiato River. However, the species has not been reconfirmed and the establishment of a population seems doubtful. A strong degradation of the dragonfly community is described in this section...

The Iberian Peninsula harbours 24 taxa of native large branchiopods (LBs). Most of them inhabit Mediterranean temporary ponds, which are priority habitats under the EU Habitats Directive. In this work, Iberian LBs were evaluated using IUCN Red List criteria based on geographic range (extent of occurrence, area of occupancy, number of locations, hab...

This study aims to analyse the woodland bird populations at the river Guadalquivir through Cordoba. In the last three decades, a positive evolution of the species richness of woodland birds was detected as the result of the settlement of a riparian forest in banks previously mostly devoid of vegetation. However, both richness and biomass have not s...

Whilst working on the collections of P-A. Robert, one of the authors (CB) discovered a larval specimen that proved to be Orthetrum trinacria (Selys, 1841). This specimen was originally collected in 1966 and pre-dates the rediscovery of this species in Europe from Sardinia by six years. The paper also discusses the early records from Iberia and spec...
