    • 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 ...

N. van; Masque, Pere; Prego, Ricardo; Ruiz-Fernández, Ana Carolina; Sánchez-Cabeza, Joan-Albert; Trigo, R. 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 ...
    • Diatom-inferred ecological responses of an oceanic lake system to volcanism and anthropogenic perturbations since 1290 CE 

      Vázquez-Loureiro, David; Gonçalves, Vítor; Sáez, Alberto; Hernández, Armand; Raposeiro, Pedro; Giralt, Santiago; Rubio-Inglés, María Jesús; Rull, Valentí; Bao, Roberto (Elsevier, 2019-07-29)
      [Abstract] The impacts of natural- and human-induced processes on lake ecosystems in remote oceanic islands remain to be fully elucidated. These lakes are excellent candidates to analyze the importance of anthropogenic ...
    • 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 ...
    • Long-Term Hydroclimate Variability in the Sub-Tropical North Atlantic and Anthropogenic Impacts on Lake Ecosystems: A Case Study From Flores Island, the Azores 

      Richter, Nora; Russell, James M.; Amaral-Zettler, Linda; DeGroff, Wylie; Raposeiro, Pedro; Gonçalves, Vítor; Boer, Erik de; Pla-Rábes, Sergi; Hernández, Armand; Benavente Marín, Mario; Ritter, Catarina; Sáez, Alberto; Bao, Roberto; Trigo, R. M.; Prego, Ricardo; Giralt, Santiago (Elsevier, 2022-06-01)
      [Abstract] Human land use and climate change threaten ecosystems and natural resources, particularly on remote islands such as the Azores Archipelago in the North Atlantic. Since the official Portuguese settlement of the ...

      [Abstract] Plastic debris is thought to be widespread in freshwater ecosystems globally1. However, a lack of comprehensive and comparable data makes rigorous assessment of its distribution challenging2,3. Here we present ...
    • Recent Global Warming Induces the Coupling of Dissimilar Long-Term Sedimentary Signatures in Two Adjacent Volcanic Lakes (Azores Archipelago, Portugal) 

      Vázquez-Loureiro, David; Sáez, Alberto; Gonçalves, Vítor; Buchaca, Teresa; Hernández, Armand; Raposeiro, Pedro; Boer, Erik de; Masqué, Pere; Giralt, Santiago; Bao, Roberto (Elsevier, 2023-01-30)
      [Abstract] Paleoclimatological information derived from the study of lacustrine sedimentary records is not only biased by taphonomical processes but also by potential differences in the expression of climate variability ...
