One of the largest challenges with soil information around the world is how to harmonize archived soil data from different sources and how make it usable to extract knowledge. In Ecuador there have been two major projects that provided soil information, whose methodology, although comparable, did not coincide, especially regarding the structure of...

Forest aboveground biomass (AGB) estimation over large extents and high temporal resolution is crucial in managing Mediterranean forest ecosystems, which have been predicted to be very sensitive to climate change effects. Although many modeling procedures have been tested to assess forest AGB, most of them cover small areas and attain high accuracy...

To know and understand the spatial distribution of soil organic carbon (SOC) is the first step for management of this important pool in the global carbon cycle, and to develop actions to address climate change. The objective of this work was to generate maps of percent SOC across Andalucía through the use of consistent models, quantifying the assoc...

Question: What is the influence of management on the functioning of vegetation over time in Mediterranean ecosystems under different climate conditions? Location: Mediterranean shrublands and forests in SE Iberia (Andalusia). Methods: We evaluated the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) for the 1997-2002 time series to determine phenologi...
Article
Understanding soil processes is fundamental to the success of forest restoration programs. We compared different types of soils in Mediterranean mountain forests with respect to their edaphic environments and influence of vegetation cover and lithology. We then used this information to determine the suitability of current forest restoration program...

Las series temporales de imágenes de satélite constituyen una excelente herramienta para analizar los cambios en diferentes aspectos del funcionamiento de la vegetación y, por lo tanto, para el conocimiento y la gestión de áreas protegidas. En este trabajo mostramos tres aproximaciones para evaluar cambios en el promedio anual, la estacionalidad, y...
Article
Soil organic matter is a key component in ecosystems, as it is the essential part of a set of relevant processes and constitutes an important carbon pool contributing to Global Change. The design of environmental monitoring programmes should include indicators of the current status of ecosystems, alerting to incipient changes in them. In this conte...

La incorporación de atributos relacionados con el funcionamiento de las unidades ambientales permite una mejor clasificación del territorio, a la vez que facilita su seguimiento mediante telede-tección, al detectar con mayor rapidez los cambios, y aporta información relevante para su manejo. La integral anual del Índice Verde Normalizado (NDVI-I),...
