Article
Coastal wetlands are biodiversity hotspots, highly threatened, and for which restoration actions have been widely implemented. Systematic monitoring of biodiversity after restoration actions on Mediterranean salt marshes vegetation needs further attention. We analyzed temporal changes in plant species composition and ecology in a restored brackish...

Global change threatens alpine biodiversity and its effects vary across habitat types and biogeographic regions. We explored vegetation changes over the last 20 years on two Mediterranean alpine calcareous grasslands in central Apennines (Italy): stripped grasslands (EUNIS code E4.436) with Sesleria juncifolia growing on steep slopes, and wind edge...

This paper addresses a re-visitation study, carried out in 2020, relating to the presence ofherbaceous vegetation in high-altitude areas where vegetation had been already studied in 2003. The study focuses on two high-altitude habitats of the Majella National Park: screes and small dolines. The aim is to monitor the species composition and its past...

We analyzed plant functional diversity (FD) and redundancy (FR) in Mediterranean high-mountain communities to explore plant functional patterns and assembly rules. We focused on three above-ground plant traits: plant height (H), a good surrogate of competition for light strategies, and specific leaf area (SLA) and leaf dry matter content (LDMC), us...

High mountain ecosystems are hotspots of biodiversity that are highly vulnerable to climate warming and land use change. In Europe, high mountain habitats are included in the EC Directive 92/43/EEC (Habitats Directive) and the identification of practices facilitating effective monitoring is crucial for meeting HD goals. We analyzed the temporal cha...

Beach litter accumulation patterns are influenced by biotic and abiotic factors, as well as by the distribution of anthropogenic sources. Although the importance of comprehensive approaches to deal with anthropogenic litter pollution is acknowledged, integrated studies including geomorphologic, biotic, and anthropic factors in relation to beach deb...

Beach litter threatens coastal dunes integrity across the world. European countries are committed to improving the environmental status of the marine and coastal environment by 2020, and to do this, they need to reduce the gap of knowledge about litter accumulation patterns in coastal environments. We analyzed the distribution pattern of waste, dif...
Article
Full-text available
This work provides a contribution to the evaluation of the environmental impact of beach litter in the dune ecosystems of coastal protected areas of Southern Abruzzo and Molise. The litter was classified depending on the material type and its use before becoming waste; moreover, the beach litter accumulation was analyzed for each EU habitat of coa...
