Presence of Vibrio mediterranei associated to major mortality in stabled individuals of Pinna nobilis L.
A major epizootic event attributed to Haplosporidium pinnae leading to 100% mortality of Pinna nobilis L. populations along Mediterranean coastlines started in the fall of 2016. As a result, a project ...
Breeding, planktonic and settlement factors shape recruitment patterns of one of the last remaining major population of Pinna nobilis within Spanish waters
The pen shell, Pinna nobilis L., is a critically endangered bivalve threatened by mass mortality events throughout the Mediterranean, but the Alfacs Bay (Ebro Delta) still hosts many healthy individuals. ...
Environmental controls on carbon sequestration, sediment accretion, and elevation change in the Ebro River Delta: Implications for wetland restoration
(Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science, 2019-03-26)
Delta wetlands are increasingly recognized as important sinks for ‘blue carbon,’ although this and other ecosystem services that deltas provide are threatened by human activities. We investigated factors ...
The influence of flow regime on ecological quality, bird diversity, and shellfish fisheries in a Lowland Mediterranean River and its coastal area
Designing environmental flows in lowland river sections and estuaries is a challenge for researchers and managers, given their complexity and their importance, both for nature conservation and economy. ...
