    • Biogeography and lake morphometry drive diatom and chironomid assemblages’ composition in lacustrine surface sediments of oceanic islands 

      Pereira, Cátia Lúcio; Raposeiro, Pedro; Costa, Ana Cristina; Bao, Roberto; Giralt, Santiago; Gonçalves, Vítor (Springer, 2014)
      [Abstract] Subfossil biotic assemblages in lakes’ surface sediments have been used to infer ecological conditions across environmental gradients. Local variables are usually the major drivers of assemblage composition, but ...

M.; Giralt, Santiago (National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2021-08-27)
      [Abstract] Humans have made such dramatic and permanent changes to Earth's landscapes that much of it is now substantially and irreversibly altered from its preanthropogenic state. Remote islands, until recently isolated ...
    • Impact of the historical introduction of exotic fishes on the chironomid community of Lake Azul (Azores Islands) 

      Raposeiro, Pedro; Rubio, Maria Jesus; González, Alba; Hernández, Armand; Sánchez-López, Guiomar; Vázquez-Loureiro, David; Rull, Valentí; Bao, Roberto; Costa, Ana Cristina; Gonçalves, Vítor; Sáez, Alberto; Giralt, Santiago (Elsevier, 2017)
      Little is known about the effect of top predator introduction in historically fishless communities, especially on remote islands. This issue is important because it might strongly affect climate reconstructions derived from ...
