Written by Erik van den Elsen   

Institute full name:

Estación Experimental de Zonas Áridas

Institute acronym:

EEZA-CSIC

Institute profile:

EEZA is an Institute of the Spanish National Research Council, CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas). EEZA has five Research Groups on Desertification and GeoEcology (DEGECO), Functional Ecology, Biodiversity Conservation, Conservation of Endangered Species, Ecological Morphology and Behavioural Ecology. The scientific interests of DEGECO include the assessment of landscape responses to human and climatic driving forces in extreme environments and the development of indicators of land condition and land degradation. The research is carried out at several scales ranging from plot to landscape level, and is mostly concerned with understanding the sources and processes of spatial heterogeneity in drylands, their implications on water balances, erosion systems and ecological connectivity, the search of scale links between field and remotely sensed data, and the off-site role of the marginal lands by providing water and other resources to their surrounding areas.
