Introduction
I am a member of the scientific staff of Plant conservation area of Instituto de Recursos Naturales y Ordenación del Territorio (INDUROT) of Universidad de Oviedo, Spain. My research is focused on the study of vascular plant diversity with molecular, morphological and phytosociological approaches. I am currently working on an environmental restoration project in the Nalón river (Asturias, Spain).

Recent phylogenetic studies have shown that Saxifraga, as currently understood, must be divided into two genera: Saxifraga L. sensu stricto and Micranthes Haw. To better understand the evolutionary history of these two genera, we performed phylogenetic analyses inferred from the nuclear ribosomal sequences from the internal transcribed spacer and t...

The infrageneric taxonomy and evolution of Ranunculus are still not well understood. In this regard, we investigated the origin and genetic diversity of the Iberian endemic plant Ranunculus bupleuroides s.l. by analysis of nuclear internal transcribed spacers (ITS) and plastid (rpl32-trnL, rps16-trnQ, trnK-matK, ycf6-psbM) sequence data. Phylogenet...

Genista anglica represents a widely distributed group of shrubs in the Iberian Peninsula, as well as in the North of the Moroccan Mountains, the South of Italy and in most oceanic territories of Western Europe, with its northern limit in Sweden. Up to five different species within the group have been described in these territories: Genista ancistro...

Saxifraga cuneifolia L. (sect. Gymnopera, Saxifragaceae) is a plant distributed in the main mountain ranges of southern Europe, from the eastern Pyrenees to the eastern Carpathian. Currently, two subspecies are recognized based on morphological characteristics: S. cuneifolia subsp. cuneifolia grows in the Maritime Alps and North Apennines and S. cu...

River corridors are fundamental elements for the protection of biodiversity. They are ecological connectors, water regulators and are related to several ecosystem services. LIFE Fluvial project aims to improve the grade of conservation of the river corridors in Natura 2000 network of several Atlantic basins of the NW of the Iberian Peninsula. Vario...
Preprint
Verbena litoralis var. brevibracteata is reported for the first time in Asturias, in several localities of the Nalón valley. This plants occupy roadsides, areas near the river and, due to their ability to spread, they can become an invasive alien plant in the future.

El tratamiento experimental de Eucalyptus globulus se realizó sobre cuatro parcelas con diferentes técnicas. En tres de ellas se cubrieron los tocones de árboles recién talados con lona negra hasta la base del tocón, en dos de estas se aplicaron previamente diferentes salmueras en la sección de los troncos (sal con agua en una y sal con agua y con...
Presentation
Alien and invasive plants are one of the mayor threats for the alluvial forests with Alnus glutinosa and Fraxinus excelsior (Alno-Padion, Alnion incanae, Salicion albae) (priority habitat 91E0*) of NW of the Iberian Peninsula river corridors. A correct management is required to improve the actual conservation status of this riparian habitat. The ai...
Article
Endemicity is a key consideration for conservation, and taxa that are endemic to a single country are vaulable conservation targets. In this study, we investigate endemic species of the genus Campanula in northern Iberian Peninsula based on sequences of nrDNA (internal transcribed spacer, ITS) and plastid regions (rbcL, trnL-F and trnS-G) and addit...

Recent phylogeographical study of Eurasian Nuphar species has revealed that after the subgenus diversificated in eastern Asia, N. pumila and N. lutea extended westwards to Siberia and further into Europe. However, isolated Nuphar populations from southwestern Europe were not included in previous phylogeographic study and their history remained unkn...

En Asturias, del género Lemna L. se conocen hasta ahora dos especies: L. gibba L. y L. minor L. (Fernández Prieto et al., 2014a). En el verano del pasado año se localizó en la Charca de Arnao (Castropol, Asturias) otra lenteja de agua de hojas muy pequeñas que ha sido identificada como Lem-na minuta Kunth, in Humboldt et al., Nov. Gen. Sp. 1: 372 (...

River corridors are subject to numerous pressures such as invasive species, plant diseases, intensification of uses, artificial structures and activities, etc. These pressures affect their functions as reservoirs of diversity of flora and fauna species, flood peak damping, hydrological cycle regulators and ecosystem service providers. Edaphological...

Fluvial corridors are fundamental ecological elements of connection between mountain areas and lowlands including the coast. They are essential for the mobility and dispersal of numerous species, favoring the plant and animal species genetic exchange between populations. Fluvial corridors are areas of interest for the networks of protected spaces c...

Genista sanabrensis Valdés Berm., Castrov. & Casaseca (Fabaceae) is an endemic and rare species of the Northwestern Iberian Peninsula. Despite its limited distribution, the species is locally abundant and therefore not categorized by the IUCN criteria as threatened at the national level. However, comprehensive studies on the genetic diversity and s...

The genus Pimpinella L. comprises about 150 species, being one of the largest genera within the family Apiaceae (subfamily Apioideae). Previous molecular phylogenetic studies have shown that Pimpinella is a taxonomically complex group. In this study, evolutionary relationships among representatives from Western Europe have been inferred from phylog...
Article
Background: The disjunct distribution patterns of a taxon may arise when previously continuous distribution ranges are fragmented. The phenomena of vicariance and dispersal, together with hybridisation as an important source of genetic variation in natural populations, can play an important role for structuring the distribution of taxa. Aims: We in...
Thesis
Saxifraga L. is a genus of Saxifragaceae Juss. which comprises approximately 370 species with holarctic distribution and with some species growing in South America. The current system divides the genus into 13 sections according to morphological and molecular criteria. Section Gymnopera D.Don of genus Saxifraga includes four species distributed in...

Major changes in the diagnosis, taxonomy and chorology of Cantabrian brooms with glabrous calyces and pubescent legumes, classified as sect. Spartopsis of the genus Cytisus (Fabaceae), have been recently implemented. Two species of this section occur in the Cantabrian region: Cytisus cantabricus and C. grandiflorus. A detailed study of the plants u...

Como resultado preliminar de estas prospecciones se colige que Ulmus laevis aparece naturalizado en la cuenca del Narcea en una población continua desde las proximidades de Cangas del Narcea hasta su desembocadura en el Nalón siendo más abundante en las proximidades de Corias, en donde aparenta tener un comportamiento agresivo. Como ejemplo, en una...

Project
LIFE FLUVIAL is a project designed to improve the state of conservation and sustainable management of Atlantic river corridors taking as a driver the representative habitat of these means: the hygrophilous forest included in the priority type 91E0* Alluvial forests with Alnus glutinosa and Fraxinus excelsior. Over four years (2017-2021), the project proposes a set of best practices to improve the state of conservation of the fluvial corridors of the Atlantic Biogeographic Region and stop the loss of biodiversity: Control of exotic invasive alien plants. Improvement of plant health of river corridors by the partial removal of dead trees infected by Phytophthora. Improvement of the riparian forest through the active (planting) and passive (fences of natural regeneration) restoration. Awareness about the natural values, socio-economic benefits and ecosystem services of river corridors. Training and technical capacity for stakeholders in the management and conservation of river corridors. In addition, restoration of hábitat type 9230 Galician-Portuguese oak Woods with Quercus robur and Quercus pyrenaica, which represents continuity with the 91E0* habitat type, is carried out through the followings actions: Acquisition of land adjacent to fluvio-estuarine shore in Ribadeo (Galicia, Spain) by the procedure of expropriation. Removal of the plantation of Eucalyptus globulus. Removal of exotic invasive alien plants. Planting of characteristics species of the oak forest.
