Convocatoria de contratos predoctorales

Se busca candidato/a para participar en la convocatoria de contratos predoctorales para formación de personal investigador del programa FPI-UAM1.

El trabajo que se desarrollará durante la tesis doctoral se enmarca en la fase final del proyecto de elaboración del Atlas de Aves en Época Reproductora liderado por SEO/BirdLife2. En este proyecto se ha recogido información estandarizada sobre la distribución y abundancia de las especies de aves en época reproductora desde 2014, en el mayor esfuerzo de ciencia ciudadana que se ha hecho hasta ahora en España. La tesis doctoral contribuirá primero a estimar el tamaño poblacional y la distribución actual de las especies de aves. Después se abordará el análisis de los estados de conservación de las aves y de la distribución de los distintos componentes de la beta-diversidad con relación a condicionantes ambientales, geográficos y de actividad humana. La tesis, además, deberá diseñar y poner a punto metodologías de comparación con iniciativas anteriores.

La tesis doctoral se realizará en el programa de doctorado de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, bajo la codirección de Javier Seoane Pinilla (Centro de Investigación en Biodiversidad y Cambio Global, CIBC-UAM3) y de Antonio Román Muñoz Gallego (grupo de Biogeografía, Diversidad y Conservación del departamento de Biología Animal, Universidad de Málaga4). Además, se colaborará con Raimundo Real (grupo de Biogeografía, Diversidad y Conservación del departamento de Biología Animal, Universidad de Málaga5), Javier Bustamante Díaz (Estación Biológica de Doñana, EBD-CSIC6) y con Juan Carlos del Moral (Coordinador de Ciencia Ciudadana, SEO/BirdLife7). 

Requisitos: el/la candidato/a deberá haber obtenido su titulación desde el 1 de enero de 2014 (detalles y excepciones en el apartado 4.2 de la convocatoria8) y matricularse en el programa de doctorado UAM 2019-2020. Además, deberá tener un expediente sobresaliente pues el principal criterio de evaluación del programa FPI-UAM es la nota media8 y de forma más secundaria la experiencia en investigación9. Buscamos un/a candidato/a motivado/a con una actitud positiva e iniciativa que facilite el trabajo en equipo y valoraremos sus conocimientos en ornitología, lenguaje R y SIG.

Si estás interesado, por favor, envía tu CV y una carta de expresión de interés a Javier Seoane (javier.seoane@uam.es) antes del 23 de mayo de 2019.

La UA estudia cómo mejorar la gestión forestal para que los bosques ofrezcan múltiples servicios ecosistémicos

Alicante. Jueves, 22 de noviembre de 2018

Los bosques aportan beneficios o servicios ecosistémicos muy variados. La producción de madera es el más evidente, pero ofrecen asimismo un lugar para disfrutar de la naturaleza, regulan el clima local y almacenan mucho carbono. La gestión forestal, sin embargo, se ha centrado generalmente en maximizar solo algunos de estos beneficios, en especial la producción de madera. A fin de analizar cómo mejorar la gestión forestal para que los bosques ofrezcan múltiples servicios, la Universidad de Berna, junto con expertos de la Universidad de Alicante y centros de investigación en Alemania, Suiza y Austria han medido el efecto de una serie de características forestales sobre catorce servicios ecosistémicos de bosques centroeuropeos.

El objetivo principal de la gestión forestal consiste normalmente en producir mucha madera, lo que en Europa ha implicado la creación de plantaciones uniformes de determinadas especies con valor económico, en las que todos los árboles tienen la misma edad. No obstante, aunque pueden producir cantidades elevadas de madera, estos bosques no ofrecen muchos más beneficios. “Además, si bien hay casos en que la gestión forestal está dirigida a otros fines, como la conservación de hábitats o el ocio, dicha gestión también se centra apenas en unos beneficios concretos, y todavía no está claro qué tipo de gestión forestal reporta una gran diversidad de beneficios”, explica la doctora de la Universidad de Berna, María Felipe Lucia, líder de este estudio.  

La investigación ha analizado toda una serie de atributos forestales, como el número de especies de árboles y arbustos que contenía el bosque, la variabilidad de su estructura y edad. Tras identificar cuáles de dichos atributos potenciaban unos servicios concretos, los expertos han demostrado que los bosques con árboles maduros, muchas especies de arbustos diferentes y una estructura heterogénea, con huecos en el dosel, son los mejores para ofrecer un amplio abanico de servicios.

Este trabajo presenta implicaciones de gestión prácticas para los silvicultores, responsables de la gestión de los bosques o montes forestales. Hemos podido demostrar, explica María Felipe Lucia, que los bosques diversos y maduros son generalmente los mejores, aunque también hay determinados servicios para los que los bosques más adecuados son los hayedos densos. Por tanto, la gestión forestal debe centrarse en atributos forestales específicos para impulsar determinados servicios.

Otro de los aspectos estudiados ha sido la relación entre diversos servicios forestales. “Para gestionar bosques y que estos ofrezcan muchos servicios debemos saber cómo reducir los compromisos entre ellos, y en este estudio se emplea un nuevo enfoque con vistas a identificar algunos de los factores responsables”, añade la investigadora de la Universidad de Berna. Es posible que determinados compromisos entre servicios sean inevitables, pues hay servicios que se maximizan en bosques abiertos, mientras que otros solo pueden proporcionarlos plantaciones con un dosel bastante denso y cerrado.

Por su parte, el investigador del Departamento de Ecología de la Universidad de Alicante, Santiago Soliveres Codina, explica que “nuestros resultados demuestran que potenciar determinados atributos forestales es positivo para muchos servicios, pero no hay ningún tipo de bosque capaz de ofrecer todos los que podríamos desear. Así pues, lo mejor probablemente sea un sistema de gestión mixta en que se diseñen diversos paisajes forestales que contengan una combinación de secciones con diferentes atributos”.

Para adaptar este estudio a nuestra región, añade el investigador de la UA, convendría investigar los tipos de bosques más extendidos en el sureste ibérico: los pinares y encinares; y añadir a la “lista” servicios ecosistémicos de crucial importancia en el Mediterráneo, como son la reducción del riesgo de incendios o la adaptación a las condiciones más secas esperadas con el cambio climático.

El estudio, titulado “Multiple forest attributes underpin the supply of multiple ecosystem services”, ha sido publicado en la prestigiosa revista Nature Communications.

AEI - oferta contrato predoctoral FPI ecología, biodiversidad y domesticación

Se busca una persona interesada en realizar la tesis doctoral en el campo de la ecología evolutiva y funcional de la domesticación en plantas, utilizando también métodos y aproximaciones de la ecología de ecosistemas y la ecología microbiana. El candidato trabajará al amparo de un contrato predoctoral FPI de la Agencia Estatal de Investigación (AEI), cuya convocatoria se hará pública próximamente. Es previsible que el candidato se incorpore a lo largo del primer semestre de 2019, aunque dependerá de los plazos de apertura y resolución de la convocatoria por parte de la AEI. El contrato FPI está asociado al proyecto CGL2017-83855-R (Biodiversity effects in agriculture: crop evolution, crop diversification, and ecosystem services).

El objetivo principal de la tesis doctoral será analizar el impacto de la domesticación de las plantas en la provisión de servicios ecosistémicos en campos agrícolas (ver aqui). Dependiendo de las habilidades e intereses del candidato seleccionado, y de las prioridades de ejecución del proyecto, estableceremos las preguntas específicas a abordar, y el tipo de aproximación a implementar. El trabajo probablemente incluirá la realización de experimentos en condiciones controladas sobre los efectos de la biodiversidad y la evolución bajo domesticación en procesos del suelo (descomposición de la materia orgánica, secuestro de carbono, mineralización del nitrógeno) y en las comunidades microbianas que regulan dichos procesos (secuenciación masiva de hongos, bacterias, arqueas). Los candidatos pueden obtener más información sobre nuestra línea de investigación y sobre el rango de aproximaciones que empleamos habitualmente aquí. El candidato realizará su tesis bajo la dirección de Rubén Milla Gutiérrez y Pablo García-Palacios. El lugar de trabajo será el Campus de Móstoles de la Universidad Rey Juan Carlos.

Los criterios de selección que emplearemos incluirán el expediente académico de los estudios de grado, la formación de postgrado y la formación complementaria en el ámbito investigador, el nivel de inglés, y la experiencia previa en proyectos de investigación en el ámbito de la ecología, la biología vegetal o la ecología microbiana. 

Los candidatos interesados, que tengan un perfil adecuado y con clara motivación por la investigación, deben escribir a ruben.milla@gmail.com y a pablo.garcia.pala@gmail.com, incluyendo su CV, una carta de motivación, y, si es el caso, cartas de referencia o contactos de investigadores con los que hayan trabajado previamente.

Aguas de Alicante y SEO-Alicante se suman a un proyecto de investigación de la UA sobre aves migratorias en la Isla de Tabarca

Alicante. Martes, 13 de febrero de 2018

Con el objeto de analizar la ecología de las aves, Universidad de Alicante, Aguas Municipalizadas de Alicante y la Sociedad Española de Ornitología (SEO-Alicante) han suscrito, esta misma mañana, un convenio de colaboración para llevar a cabo el proyecto de investigación "Viajeros a través del Mediterráneo: el estudio de la migración de las aves en la Isla de Tabarca".

La firma ha contado con la vicerrectora Investigación y Transferencia del Conocimiento de la UA, Amparo Navarro; el director General de Aguas Municipalizadas Alicante, Francisco Javier Bartual; y el coordinador de SEO-Alicante, Antonio Bañuls. Además, han asistido el investigador responsable de la coordinación y ejecución del proyecto en la UA, Germán López, del Departamento de Ecología; la directora de Desarrollo Sostenible de Aguas Municipalizadas Alicante, Amelia Navarro; y, por parte del Servicio de Gestión de la Investigación y Transferencia de Tecnología (SGITT-OTRI) de la UA, su director adjunto, Víctor López, y la técnica de Transferencia, Mª Dolores Rosillo.

 

Antecedentes

Desde 2009 se han realizado campañas anuales de estudio de la migración primaveral de aves en la isla de Tabarca organizadas por los socios de Alicante de la Sociedad Española de Ornitología (SEO-Alicante) con apoyo de la Universidad de Alicante. En estas campañas se han anillado más de 8.500 aves de 72 especies diferentes que han dado lugar a diversas recuperaciones lejanas que informan sobre los movimientos migratorios de las aves que recalan en esta isla. El estudio de la migración mediante el análisis de series temporales largas es necesario para detectar cambios a largo plazo en este proceso, potencialmente relacionados con el cambio global. La contribución de Aguas de Alicante permitirá dar continuidad a esta colaboración manteniendo las campañas de estudio de la migración en Tabarca.

El proyecto "Viajeros a través del Mediterráneo: el estudio de la migración de las aves en la Isla de Tabarca" consiste en la realización de campañas de anillamiento intensivo concentradas en los periodos de migración prenupcial y en la postnupcial, entre el 15 de marzo al 15 de mayo. Además, al tratarse de la única isla del litoral mediterráneo peninsular que presenta un núcleo urbano, cuya pequeña población se ve incrementada por cientos o miles de turistas en las épocas de vacaciones, ofrece la oportunidad de realizar actividades de educación ambiental sobre la migración de las aves.

A total of 52 centres of all the province have participated in the program directed to the alumnado of 4º of THIS and of bachillerato "See to do practices to the University", directed by the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Alicante. A celebrated action during the month of January that wakes up a big interest since it contributes to the diffusion of the sciences and establishes a new road of contact to facilitate the knowledge and common enrichment between the Faculty of Sciences of the UA and the centres of secondary education. In this edition of 2018, almost a hundred of centres have requested his participation by what has had to give priority to which still had not assisted previously.

In total, 1.390 students have realised practical of laboratory related with disciplines like Biochemistry; Biotechnology; Sciences of the Sea; Microbiology; Optics and Optometry; Analytical Chemistry; Organic Chemistry; or Optical, Pharmacology and Anatomy. But, besides, they have discovered that the science is in each corner by means of practices of observation like %u201C¿How many tórtolas there is in the campus of the UA?: A model of the investigation on the wild fauna%u201D and %u201CDoing photosynthesis to the shadow of the neighbour: convivencia between plants and productivity%u201D, coordinated by the Department of Ecology of the UA.

The presentation of the wiki S4S in the press

The new science is the one who adapts to the social demands

The UA launches Wiki S4S, new participatory platform so that researchers and public professionals and deprived develop a science adapted to the social demands

EDITORIAL Under the lemma «The science only has impact if it uses », the University of Alicantepresented the Tuesday the Wiki S4S «Science for Society Solutions» directed by Barron Josep Orr, of the University of Arizona (U.S.), and coordinated by Susana Bautista, of the Department of Ecology of the UA. It treats of a platform that achieves that scientific and public professionals and deprived develop a more notable science adapted to the social demands. An incitativa effective to do arrive the scientific advances to the beneficiarios through participatory processes in which the users and parts interested, like the political managers or social agents, contribute to the exchange and transfer of the knowledge.

«It exists a problem of sensitisation and communication between researchers, professional and society and the commonly proposed solutions are ineffective and almost always insufficient. The good news is that they exist methods to optimise the impact of the science based in the commitment and the participation. The project S4S offers to the scientific community the necessary tools so that this suceda», signals Barron Josep Orr, the one who has been hired «Marie Curie» of the University of Alicante, where has developed the project «Science for Society Solutions» and has collaborated in diverse institutional initiatives in the field of the transfer of the scientific knowledge and academician.

Although they exist some wikis centred in specific scientific fields, the S4S is new in his contents and aims: spread and facilitate the use of participatory tools in the field of the environmental sciences. In this sense, «the wiki connects to the experts in participatory methods with the researchers and environmental agents that want to implement them», adds the coordinator of the project Susana Bautista.

Designed like a platform of work colaborativo and open, any one has access to the content of the wiki although it is especially headed to researchers in sciences of the environment, to the administration and agents of natural resources, small and medium enterprises, and to the ONGs of environmental nature.

Tools

The Wiki S4S provides a repositorio dynamic on participatory methods, theoretical foundations and examples of application by what all the experts and interested that they wish to contribute to the wiki can do it after a simple process of register.

In addition to reading any available material or share, transform and redistribute in any half or format, the users can incorporate videos, programs of qualification and groups of work, between other participatory tools.

The launching of the wiki S4S and his public presentation has had the support of the Vicerrectorado of Investigation and Transfer of the Knowledge of the UA represented by the director of the Secretariat of Investigation, Juan Dwells. «The platform optimises the impact of the results of R&D without forgetting the main aim of the science: improve the quality of life of the society», has remarked.

The Department of Ecology studies the population of European hedgehogs of the campus of the UA

From three years ago, the department of ecology is llevar a project of investigation (project ErizUA) of the population of European hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus) present in the campus of the University of Alicante. This study frames in a thesis doctoral on the adaptation of the wild fauna to urban surroundings, that uses to the hedgehog like model of study.

Between the lines of investigation of this project, includes the study by means of radius follow-up of some individuals of this population. The follow-ups llevar in the spring-summer of 2014 with aim to study the effect of the sex and size of the individual in the extension of the area of campeo of this species. For this, marked with radio-transmissive 6 hedgehogs (3 males and 3 females) that they were followed during 3 nights, during his periplos nocturnal. The results show that the areas of campeo present a clear difference between sexes, being greater in the males, and that the size affects significantly to the extension of the territories of the males but no to the of the females.

The results, have been published recently in the XII Congress of the Spanish Society for the Conservation and the Study of Mammalian (SECEM) celebrated between the 4 and 7 December in Boroughs and can consult here.

All the population is being marked individually and followed of periodic way to study his phenology (periods of reproduction, hibernation, etc) and analyse the taxes of survival and the possible causes of mortality in this type of urban habitats.

It would appreciate the collaboration of any person, student or PAS, that in case to locate a dead hedgehog or a camada of hedgehogs, put in contact with the authors of the study.

Contribution to the XII Congress of the Spanish Society for the Conservation and Study of the Mammals, celebrated between the 4 and 7 December 2015 in Boroughs.

The Department of Ecology has participated in the XII Congress of the Spanish Society for the Conservation and Study of the Mammals, celebrated between the days 4 and 7 December of the present year in the Palace of Congresses and Auditorium - FORUM EVOLUTION of Boroughs. They presented in a new oral communication data of distribution of the mole of Cabrera (Iberomys cabrerae) in the Raise peninsular, as well as his main threats in the area of study. It treats of an endemic rodent of the Iberian Peninsula, with a status of conservation desfavorable and an area of distribution very restricted and fragmentada. They presented in format poster the results of a work on frugivoría in carnivorous mammals and another on the use of the space by part of the European hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus). In the first has studied by part of the Scientific Station Font Red Nature the paper like dispersores of seeds of the fox (Vulpes vulpes) and the garduña (Tuesday foina) in the ZEC Saws of Mariola and Carrascal of the Font Red, analysing if they exist differences in the dispersion of the vegetal species in different habitats of the zone of study. In the second have given to know the results of a project of radius follow-up of European hedgehogs, llevar in the own campus of the University of Alicante. In this communication studied the effect of the sex in the dimensions of the areas of campeo of the hedgehogs and his patterns of daily activity.

Two new articles analyse the population dynamics of endangered orchids from Cuba

These articles deals with the 'problem' of working with endemic species subject to periodic perturbations. In the first case, using IPMs (integrated projection models) and making a simulation of different frequencies of occurrence of hurricanes and their impact on the population dynamics of Dendrophylax lindenii.

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/btp.12202/abstract

The second article in this context of disturbance perodicas discussed the traditional approximation of matrix projection models (PPMs) and recent techniques are applied to analyze long-term (asymptotic) behaviour not the behaviour of populations that there arrived at steady state (transient behavior).

New Hypogeous pseudoescorpion of Mallorca

A new species of pseudoescorpion has been described in a cave on the island of Mallorca. An intensive sampling carried out for an entire year in the Coves de Campanet, Campanet, Mallorca, have allowed the capture of three species of pseudoscorpions. The methodology consisted in the installation of 18 traps scattered throughout the cavity and its quarterly review. It is the Coves de Campanet of a cavity enabled tourism, has surprised the capture of a new species of Hypogeous pseudoescorpion, completely blind and well adapted to the underground environment: Chthonius (Chthonius) campaneti Zaragoza & Vadell, 2013, since e.g. species tend to avoid this kind of cavities by lighting and environmental alterations. This new species two others associated with it: Chthonius (Chthonius) ischnocheles (Hermann, 1804) and Chthonius (Ephippiochthonius) tetrachelatus (Preyssler, 1790), both epigean but not uncommon species in the entrance of the karst cavities; in this case, both species, perfectly oculadas, have been favored by the artificial lighting in some deeper rooms in its colonization of the cavity. The discovery of C. campaneti represents the seventh species known for the genre Chthonius in the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands.

Published the book : Environmental impact studies. Practical handbook for processing Professor Enrique de Tomás

This work includes more than 20 years of professional and teaching experience of the author in the field of the evaluation of the environmental impact, both in Spain and in the European Environment Agency, which was named consultant in 1994. It has been conceived as a manual that will help clarify the most frequent questions that, both students and professionals in the sector, in preparing an environmental impact study.

"Environmental impact studies. Practical handbook for processing"is a reference work for students and professionals in which the author has an impact on the exposure and use of the various tools that can be used for the detection and assessment of possible environmental impacts arising from the implementation of a project. The work is complemented by an annex presenting, as an example, a check list which are reflected in international organizations, in this case at the Japan International cooperation agency, and three more than they collect most relevant European, national and of the autonomous Valencian Community environmental regulations.

The author is a biologist and serves as a professional in the field of environmental consultancy. He is Professor of the Department of ecology of the University of Alicante, where among other subjects teaches environmental impact assessment for more than fifteen years.

Contribution to the 11th Congress of the Spanish society for the conservation and the study of mammals from 5 to December 8, Avilés (Asturias).

The Department of ecology contributed to the 11th Congress of the Spanish society for the conservation and the study of mammals, held between 5 and 8 December of this year in Avilés (Asturias). Three communications were presented to Congress in a poster showing the results of the study of the mammalian fauna of the province. On the one hand, presented the conclusions of the follow-up programme of mammals in the Paraje Natural Municipal of the Racó de Sant Bonaventura-Els Canalons (Alcoi). This has an important role as ecological corridor in the site of Community importance (SCI) formed by the natural park of the Sierra de Mariola and the Carrascal de la Font Roja. On the other hand, showed the preliminary data from a study at provincial level of seed dispersal by the most common carnivorous mammals of the province, mainly the Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes), within the project UNCROACH (CGL-2011-30581-CC02-01), funded by the Ministry of economy and competitiveness. Also is published the results of a study on rabbit census in agroforestry means of the natural park of the Serra de Mariola, based on estimates conducted by kilometric indexes of abundance and densities from the DISTANCE program obtaining.

The importance of the study of the ecology of invasive species

Summarizes the thesis that encompasses different aspects involved in the process of invasion of exotic plant species Ailanthus altissima under Mediterranean climate. Their ecological characteristics, the susceptibility of habitats and the context of the system, with the aim of increasing our knowledge of the species and their effects on native ecosystems and the improvement in the management of this species in protected natural areas have been considered.

The invasion of a. altissima in Mediterranean ecosystems is influenced both by genetic characteristics and environmental which affect the development of the species. From anthropic use (i.e. in gardening or restoration) has invaded several ecosystems, including the riparian forests, which negatively impacts on species richness, phylogenetic diversity and multi-functional ecosystem. The most effective method to control long-term is clearing and application of glyphosate.

Creation and analysis of a network of dendrochronological of Pinus halepensis Mill. in the Spanish Mediterranean

Klemen Novak dissertation proposal "creation and analysis of a dense network of chronologies of Pinus halepensis Mill." in the Spanish Mediterranean", will allow to determine the elements that determine the distribution and dynamics of growth of various forest populations. At the same time, it will allow us determine climate stress levels that these populations are able to tolerate and thus be able to predict the impact of the change of climate in the same. This thesis will not only determine the thickness of the ring, but the various parameters involved in his training because they give key information for a correct determination of the growth of pine trees and its interaction with the environment.

http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00468-013-0845-5

The study shows that the anatomical characteristics of wood can provide additional information to that contained in the thickness of tree rings. Since the results have been obtained in contrasting sites, it is likely you can generalize in the wide area of distribution of Pinus halepensis, represent a useful tool for studies on regional scale.

Anual fluctuations (IADFs) density in the rings of trees of Aleppo Pine (Pinus halepensis) are considered as one of the anatomical characteristics of wood most promising in dendrochronology studies. Through a network of 35 sites in Spain, ranging from desert climate to the mild climate, the frequencies varied through the network and at different sites that register containing 0.3% to 33% of the analysed tree rings IADFs. IADFs were more common where and when temperatures were higher, the drought of summer was intense and the autumn was the main station of the precipitation.
