Land-use legacies and climate change as a double challenge to oak forest resilience: mismatches of geographical and ecological rear edges

Global change challenges ecosystems in xeric locations transformed by intensive human use. Resilience to drought of relict Mediterranean *Quercus pyrenaica* populations in the southern Iberian Peninsula was analyzed in relation to historical records …

An ontological system based on MODIS images to assess ecosystem functioning of Natura 2000 habitats: A case study for *Quercus pyrenaica* forests

A system to monitor ecosystem functioning was developed. It downloads MODIS images and processes them automatically. We developed an ontology using this information to run complex queries about the functioning of *Q. pyrenaica* forests. The system generates useful knowledge to aid decision-making and reporting tasks
