The Conservation of Sea Turtles is Nearing

Captive breeding of newborn turtles and protection and relocation of nests would contribute to the conservation of loggerhead sea turtles, Caretta caretta, in our waters. This is one of the conclusions found in the first follow-up study conducted on the behavior of post-hatchling turtles in the Mediterranean that was recently published in the Marine Biology journal.

Ecohydrological-Based Forestry Ideal for Mediterranean Forest Management

A study carried out by researchers from The Research Institute of Water and Environmental Engineering (IIAMA), with the participation of Campus Gandia research scientists, has determined that ecohydrological-based forestry is the most suitable for forest management of Mediterranean forests, especially in water-scarce scenarios. The research is based on the consideration that current forest management practices in […]

UPV Study to Contribute to Determining New River Serpis Ecological Flow

Researchers at the Universitat Politècnica de València have started a project whose objective is to update the environmental flow regime of the River Serpis River, promoting the conservation of native species against invasive species and taking into account different climate change management scenarios, as well as the cost of these alternative regimes. The research project […]
