Recent climate change has caused diverse ecological responses in plants and animals. However, relatively little is known about homeothermic animals’ ability to adapt to changing temperature regimes through changes in body size, in accordance with Bergmann’s rule.
El LINCGlobal es una nueva herramienta de investigación, desarrollo y formación de alto nivel, para facilitar la interacción entre investigadores iberoamericanos y españoles en el ámbito del cambio global.
The competitive equilibrium between deciduous and perennial species in a new scenario of climate change may depend closely on the productivity of leaves along the different seasons of the year and on the morphological and chemical adaptations required for leaf survival during the different seasons.
In the Mediterranean climate, plants have evolved under conditions of low soil-water and nutrient availabilities and have acquired a series of adaptive traits that, in turn exert strong feedback on soil fertility, structure, and protection.
En 1964, en el Instituto Español de Oceanografía se estableció el Centro Español de Datos Oceanográficos, en el marco del Sistema de Centros Nacionales de Datos Oceanográficos (NODCs), creado por la Comisión Oceanográfica Intergubernamental (COI).
Pinus pinaster Ait. is found in the Iberian Peninsula under Mediterranean and Atlantic conditions. Both climates encounter each other in Galicia (NW Spain), where two bioclimatic regions can be differentiated: coastal and inland.
A great deal of climate change research focuses on forced migration as a response to sea level rise and the loss of livelihoods. By contrast much less research considers altered patterns of amenity led international retirement migration as a response to climate change.
