The evergreen laurel forest is a relic of ancient subtropical/tropical forests, of which the best remnant in the Canary Islands is in Garajonay National Park, on La Gomera island. The soil microbiome associated with a mature undisturbed (unburned) laurel forest was characterized at two locations at different topographical positions on the mountain: The slope and the ridge crest. Given the unusual circumstance of an intense wildfire that severely affected part of this forest, the burned soils wer...

Abstract Global warming is changing the structure and elevational limits of treelines around the world. This could become a threat particularly on islands, where usually high mountain ecosystems occupy small areas. Tenerife, with a maximum elevation of 3715 m, is an excellent example of this. In this subtropical island, the treeline composed by endemic pine forests is expected to go up in elevation due to global warming, invading the summit scrub ecosystem. However, there is a lack of knowledge ...

Islands harbour a spectacular diversity and unique species composition. This uniqueness is mainly a result of endemic species that have evolved in situ in the absence of mammal herbivores. However,...

Alpine ecosystems on islands are among the most isolated on Earth, leading to very high rates of endemism. Endemic species on oceanic islands are particularly vulnerable to invasive herbivores. In the alpine zone of Tenerife, which harbors a unique endemic flora, the dominance pattern of the two most dominant species in our days (Spartocytisus supranubius and Pterocephalus lasiospermus) has shifted in the last few decades, which may be a result of increasing rabbit pressure. In this study we exp...
