International Congress of mediterranean Ecosystems

Researchers of the RESTECO project have presented their results in the International Congress of Mediterranean-type Ecosystems – XIV MEDECOS – which was held at Sevilla, Spain, on February 2017.

In particular, three oral communications were presented within the Symposium “Filling current knowledge gaps: understanding the role of plant-soil interactions on the functioning and resilience of Mediterranean ecosystems in a changing world”:

Marta Gil-Martínez et al. “Understanding feedback processes between holm oak (Quercus ilex) and their ectomycorrhizal fungal symbionts in trace-element polluted soils in Mediterranean ecosystems”.

Álvaro López García et al. “Assessment of the recovery of functional diversity of ectomycorrhizal fungal communities in metal polluted soils”.

Teodoro Marañón et al. “Soil functioning and ecosystem services: using trees to remediate contaminated soils”.

Three poster communications, also related to the project, were presented in other sessions:

María Teresa Domínguez Núñez et al. “Soil contamination and the provision of ecosystem services in Mediterranean lands: implications for livestock and bionergy uses”.

Sara Muñoz Valdés et al. “Modelling resilience and ecosystem services of soils contaminated by heavy metals under remediation measures and Climate Change scenarios: The Case Study of Guadiamar”.

Carmen M. Navarro-Fernández et al. “A functional approach to explore the drivers of mycorrhizal trait variability in Mediterranean plant communities”
