Data from: Census parcels cropping system classification from multitemporal remote imagery: a proposed universal methodologyLuis Garcia-Torres, Juan Jose Caballero-Novella, David Gomez-Candon & Jose Manuel Peña
A procedure named CROPCLASS was developed to semi-automate census parcel crop assessment in any agricultural area using multitemporal remote images. For each area, CROPCLASS consists of a) a definition of census parcels through vector files in all of the images; b) the extraction of spectral bands (SB) and key vegetation index (VI) average values for each parcel and image; c) the conformation of a matrix data (MD) of the extracted information; d) the classification of...
Data from: A critical analysis of the potential for EU Common Agricultural Policy measures to support wild pollinators on farmlandLorna Cole, David Kleijn, Lynn Dicks, Jane Stout, Simon Potts, Matthias Albrecht, Mario Balzan, Ignasi Bartomeus, Penelope Bebeli, Danilo Bevk, Jacobus Biesmeijer, Róbert Chlebo, Anželika Dautartė, Nikolaos Emmanouil, Chris Hartfield, John Holland, Andrea Holzschuh, Nieke Knoben, Anikó Kovács-Hostyánszki, Yael Mandelik, Heleni Panou, Robert Paxton, Theodora Petanidou, Miguel Pinheiro De Carvalho, … & Jeroen Scheper
1. Agricultural intensification and associated loss of high-quality habitats are key drivers of insect pollinator declines. With the aim of decreasing the environmental impact of agriculture, the 2014 EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) defined a set of habitat and landscape features (Ecological Focus Areas: EFAs) farmers could select from as a requirement to receive basic farm payments. To inform the post-2020 CAP, we performed a European-scale evaluation to determine how different EFA options vary in...
Data from: Intestinal microbiota is influenced by gender and body mass indexCarmen Haro Mariscal, Oriol A. Rangel-Zúñiga, Juan F. Alcalá-Díaz, Francisco Gómez-Delgado, Pablo Pérez-Martinez, Javier Delgado-Lista, Gracia M. Quintana-Navarro, Blanca B. Landa, Juan A. Navas-Cortés, Manuel Tena-Sempere, Jose C. Clemente, José López-Miranda, Francisco Pérez Jiménez, Antonio Camargo, Carmen Haro & Francisco Pérez-Jiménez
Intestinal microbiota changes are associated with the development of obesity. However, studies in humans have generated conflicting results due to high inter-individual heterogeneity in terms of diet, age, and hormonal factors, and the largely unexplored influence of gender. In this work, we aimed to identify differential gut microbiota signatures associated with obesity, as a function of gender and changes in body mass index (BMI). Differences in the bacterial community structure were analyzed by 16S sequencing...
Agriculture causes homogenization of plant-feeding nematode communities at the regional scaleAntonio Archidona-Yuste, Thorsten Wiegand, Nico Eisenhauer, Carolina Cantalapiedra-Navarrete, Juan E. Palomares-Rius & Pablo Castillo
1. An emerging research line in conservation ecology addresses how environmental change drivers may cause the biotic homogenization of ecological communities by shifts in species diversity and community composition. While the drivers have been explored in unmanaged ecosystems and managed agricultural systems, this issue has received limited attention in regards to a key soil bioindicator organisms, soil nematodes. 2. In this study, we evaluated the effect of land-use change and intensification on the diversity of...
