The Portuguese Man O’Wars Invading the Mediterranean Will Die off as Summer Progresses

The invasion of Portuguese Man O’Wars in the Valencian coast has caused a great deal of alarm. We asked Ainara Ballesteros, researcher at a reference center, the Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM-CSIC), to dispel our doubts. Ainara Ballesteros studied the Master’s Degree in Assessment and Environmental Monitoring of Marine and Coastal Ecosystems at the UPV. 

UPV Research Project Predicts Significant Reduction of Available Water Supply in the Serpis River

The dramatic impact of climate change will reduce the amount of available water supply in the Serpis River. This is one of the conclusions of the research project titled “Adaptation to Global Change: Integrated Management of the Environmental Flow Regime for the European Eel and Valencia Chub Habitat Against Invasive Species”, sponsored by the Biodiversity Foundation […]

The UPV Develops a Low-Cost System to Achieve More Sustainable Aquaculture

Contributing to more sustainable aquaculture: this is the ultimate objective of the dissertation authored by Oliva native, Lorena Parra, and supervised by the the research professors from the Campus Gandia of the UPV, Jaime Llore and Miguel Rodilla. In this regard, the thesis paper presents the design and development of low-cost sensors for fish farms, with very low energy consumption […]

Promoting Transversal Environmental Education by Using ICTs

Implementing a methodology to promote active and transversal environmental education by using ICT tools (Information and Communication Technologies). This is the main objective of the Project titled “Design, application and evaluation of active learning methodologies, using ICT in the field of environmental engineering”,which brings together professors from the Degree in Environmental Sciences at Campus Gandia, […]

House Martins, Swifts and Swallows: Natural and Cultural Resource of Our Towns and Villages

As we’ve come to expect every year, the songs of house martins, swifts and swallows mark the beginning of spring. With their expected punctuality, these insectivorous birds have returned from Africa traveling thousands of kilometers. It’s hard not to remember those summer afternoons playing in the streets of our town as we listened to them sing and […]

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 […]
