Cover for Soil nutrient status and forage yield at varying distances from trees in four dehesas in Extremadura, Spain.

The aim of this study was to understand the effect of holm-oak (Quercus ilex) on the soil nutrient concentration and its consequence for the yield of understorey forage (Avena sativa) in four dehesas of CW Spain. The soils of the dehesas varied in soil fertility (chromic Luvisols and Achrisols, and ...

Cover for Post-fire ecological and dynamic characterization of shrubland communities in Galicia using structural variables.

Two Galician moorland communities, one dominated by Pterospartum tridentatum and Erica umbellata and the other by Cytisus striatus, were ecologically characterized, and their recovery after a traditional use of fire to obtain pasture for grazing was evaluated. The study was carried out in A Serra...

Cover for Historical effects of grazing on tree establishment in the Cantabrian lowlands, northern Spain: a dendroecological analysis in two old-growth forests.

Tree regeneration patterns were reconstructed in two old-growth deciduous forests in the Cantabrian lowlands, northern Spain: the Caviedes forest and the Tragamón woodlands. Caviedes is dominated by beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) and pedunculate oak (Quercus robur L.), while Tragamón is constituted by...

Cover for Economic considerations of silvopastoralism in California oak woodlands.

Oak woodlands in California cover 4 million hectares and are over 80% privately owned. Silvopastoralism is the dominant land use, providing a working landscape with the highest biodiversity levels in the state. However, high opportunity costs from alternative land uses threaten to fragment these...
