Full-text available
In recent years, a big concern has arisen over large-scale climate-induced reductions on forest growth and survival (Allen et al., 2015), and their impact on the water cycle (Mekonnen & Hoekstra, 2011). Specifically, the higher drought frequency under warmer temperatures (known as "hotter-droughts" or "global change-type droughts") has been related...

Full-text available
Forests provide many environmental services, especially those related to the water cycle. In semiarid areas where water is a limiting factor for ecosystem functioning, forested areas can have a strong impact on ground water recharge. In these areas, proper knowledge of forests’ water balance is necessary to promote management practices that may ens...

En el mediterráneo donde el agua es un recurso escaso, resulta especialmente importante conocer la relación del crecimiento de las masas forestales con variables hidrológicas. El objetivo del estudio es evaluar como la dinámica temporal de la humedad en el suelo determina el crecimiento de pinares de Pinus halepensis y analizar los posibles cambios...
Article
Tropical Andean ecosystems have been identified as very vulnerable to climate change. Changes in climatic conditions, especially drought as envisaged by climate change projections, could affect the establishment of new individuals that are responsible for ensuring the persistence of species and plant communities. The aim was to study the main morph...
Conference Paper
Land surface phenology (LSP) is described as the seasonal pattern of variation in vegetated land surfaces observed from remote sensing. Vegetation phenology derived from remotely sensed multi-temporal satellite imagery can be used as a bio-indicator for climate change thanks to the strong relationship between phenology and Climate. In previous work...

The frequency and magnitude of climate extremes are expected to increase in the future according to climate change forecasts.Forest mortality is, among others, a consequence of extreme drought events caused by of the increase of temperature and the decrease of precipitation. In the last years, forest mortality induced by events of extreme drought w...
Article
In Mediterranean areas with limited availability of water, an accurate knowledge of growth response to hydrological variables could contribute to improving management and stability of forest resources. The main goal of this study is to assess the temporal dynamic of soil moisture to better understand the water-growth relationship of Pinus halepensi...
Article
In dryland areas, knowledge of plant water requirements and water use strategies of species are essential for use in afforestation, to ensure the establishment of seedlings in the first summer after planting. In this context, we used minilysimeters to estimate the daily whole-plant transpiration requirements in seedlings of Pinus halepensis, Pistac...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Water is a limited resource in the semiarid areas, which affects both, the population services (blue water), and the natural ecosystems stability (green water). In this context, an accurate knowledge of soil water balance and role of vegetation cover contribute to improve the management of water and forest resources. These studies are increasingly...

III Reunión del Grupo de Trabajo de Hidrología Forestal: La hidrología forestal: ciencia y técnicas útiles Balance hídrico del suelo en pinares con diferente densidad de arbolado. Efectos sobre el establecimiento de brinzales de especies rebrotadoras bajo el dosel Resumen El objetivo del presente trabajo fue determinar el balance hídrico del suelo...
Article
Full-text available
El agua es un recurso limitado en las zonas semiáridas, que afecta a los servicios a la población y a la estabilidad de los ecosistemas, especialmente en la cuenca Mediterránea dada la escasez hídrica que se prevé según el IPCC. En este contexto, un conocimiento del balance hídrico en el suelo y su relación con la cubierta vegetal contribuye a mejo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
El objetivo del presente trabajo fue determinar el balance hídrico del suelo en bosques de pino carrasco con diferente densidad de arbolado utilizando el modelo ecohidrológico HYDROBAL, y evaluar sus efectos sobre la introducción y establecimiento bajo el dosel, de brinzales de especies ampliamente utilizadas en la restauración forestal. En est...
Conference Paper

Water is a limited resource in the semiarid areas, which affects both, the population services, the economic growth, like the natural ecosystems stability. In this context, an accurate knowledge of soil water balance and role of the vegetation cover contribute to improve the management of resources water and forest. These studies are increasingly i...
