Introduction
I'm interested in plant ecology, biology conservation, invasion biology and botany. My ultimate goal it's to improve our understanding of nature and apply all the knowledge that we generate to conservation and management of the environment. My PhD was focused in Quercus petraea, a very interesting forest specie in Catalonia in terms of conservation. also I do different botanic studies about invasive species or rare plants in my influence zone. https://www.jordibou.com/

We assessed the influence of some environmental conditions (temperature and rainfall) on the litterfall and BAI (basal area increment), in three close forests in the Montseny massif (NE part of the Iberian peninsula, Spain). Two of them are composed of deciduous species Fagus sylvatica and Quercus petraea, and the other one is a Mediterranean everg...

Euphorbia duvalii Lecoq & Lamotte is an endemic species from the Catalan-Occitan territory ―western Mediterranean area― and is usually found in the south of France. Euphorbia duvalii has been cited from some localities of the Iberian Peninsula, but in later reviews all of these citations were finally identified as other species of Euphorbia L. One...

Aims Our aims were 3-fold: (i) to determine whether global change has altered the composition and structure of the plant community found in the sessile oak forests on the NE Iberian Peninsula over the last decades, (ii) to establish whether the decline in forest exploitation activities that has taken place since the mid-20th century has had any eff...

The small islands in the Mediterranean basin play an important role in its diversity because they have very unique natural habitats. They are very vulnerable to the direct and indirect effects of human activity, which severely impact ecosystems. Our study analysed the dynamics of the vegetation over recent years on one small island in an attempt to...

The sessile oak forests found on the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula are ascribed to the Lathyro-Quercetum petraeae association and play a key role in understanding the ecology of this habitat, as this region represents its xeric limit. For this reason, we analysed the biodiversity patterns and current conservation status of the sessile oak fore...

The sessile oak (Quercus petraea) is a deciduous tree with a Euro‑Siberian distribution. It is widely spread throughout Europe and (as with other Euro‑Siberian species that constitute the Lathyro montani‑Quercetum petraeae plant community) its southern‑most distribution limit can be found on the Iberian Peninsula. Most of the sessile oak forests on...

The sessile oak forest (Lathyro montani-Quercetum petraea), in the NE Iberian Peninsula are at the south-ernmost limit of the Quercus petraea range, in Mediter-ranean-type conditions at the xeric limit. Studies of vegetation dynamics in these extreme conditions are crucial for improving our knowledge of vegetation response to climate change. Curren...

The sessile oak Quercus petraea is widespread in Central Europe. The populations in the NE Iberian Peninsula are at the southernmost limit of the species range, in the most Mediterranean-type conditions and at the xeric limit. The results of study show that the community species composition has been altered since the second half of the 20th century...

Les espècies invasores, són una de les problemàtiques ambientals més importants de l’actualitat. En el cas dels rius, els hidròfits invasors són molt prolífics i difícils de controlar, ja que la pròpia dinàmica fluvial, acostuma facilitar la dispersió d’aquestes especies, essent molt difícil de gestionar. En el cas de la conca del Ter destaquen tre...
