Otra batalla ganada

Cuando de manera totalmente inexplicable en 2013 el hongo asesino de anfibios fue retirado del catálogo español de especies exóticas invasoras, varios colectivos conservacionistas y científicos elaboraron un recurso solicitando la inclusión de esta y de otras especies peligrosas. Ahora, una sentencia del Tribunal Supremo ordena que el hongo vuelva a incluirse en el catálogo.


Peñalara, The Stage for a New International Project

Chytridiomycosis has become one of the biggest threats to global biodiversity. Understanding more about how the disease dynamic changes depending on the response of different amphibian species is vital in fighting against it, and Peñalara offers ideal conditions for these studies. Therefore, we have begun a project with a new approach towards finding this information, in which we will work with diverse investigators from the United Kingdom.


Alpine newts in Guadarrama and other outsiders

The last number of the Asociación Herpetológica Española (AHE) - Spanish Herpetological Association-bulletin deals in a monographic way about the amphibians’ and retiles’ species introduced in Spain. In this number we tell you about the alpine newt history in Sierra de Guadarrama. Another example of an interesting specie that was introduced irresponsibly outside its natural range and that could unchain incalculable damages in the unique Peñalara’s ecosystem.
