• Ecological memory at millennial time-scales: the importance of data constraints, species longevity and niche features 

      Benito De Pando, Blas Manuel; Gil-Romera, Graciela; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Ecological memory describes how antecedent conditions drive the dynamics of an ecological system. Palaeoecological records are paramount to understand ecological memory at millennial time‐scales, but the concept is widely ...
    • Holocene fire and vegetation dynamics in the Central Pyrenees (Spain) 

      Leunda, Maria; Gil-Romera, Graciela; Daniau, Anne-Laure; Benito De Pando, Blas Manuel; González-Sampériz, Penélope (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Fire-vegetation relationships are critical to understand transient mountain ecosystems and their long-term landscape dynamics, which is essential for alpine forest conservation. In this paper we aim to (1) reconstruct the ...
    • Long-term fire resilience of the Ericaceous Belt, Bale Mountains, Ethiopia 

      Gil-Romera, Graciela; Adolf, Carole; Benito De Pando, Blas Manuel; Bittner, Lucas; Johansson, Maria U.; Grady, David. A; Lamb, Henry F.; Lemma, Bruk; Fekadu, Mekbib; Glaser, Bruno; Mekonnen, Betelhem; Sevilla-Callejo, Miguel; Zech, Michael; Zech, Wolfgang; Miehe, Georg (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Fire is the most frequent disturbance in the Ericaceous Belt (ca 3000–4300 m.a.s.l.), one of the most important plant communities of tropical African mountains. Through resprouting after fire, Erica establishes a positive ...
    • A multi-dating approach to age-modelling long continental records: The 135 ka El Cañizar de Villarquemado sequence (NE Spain) 

      Valero-Garcés, Blas L.; González-Sampériz, Penélope; Gil-Romera, Graciela; Benito De Pando, Blas Manuel; Moreno, Ana; Oliva-Urcia, Belén; Aranbarri, Josu; García-Prieto, Eduardo; Frugone, Matías; Morellón, Mario; Arnold, Lee J.; Demuro, Martina; Hardiman, Mark J.; Blockley, Simon P.E.; Lane, Christine S. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      We present a multidisciplinary dating approach - including radiocarbon, Uranium/Thorium series (U/Th), paleomagnetism, single-grain optically stimulated luminescence (OSL), polymineral fine-grain infrared stimulated ...
