    • A Review of the Potential Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Options for European Viticulture 

      Santos, João A.; Fraga, Helder; Malheiro, Aureliano C.; Moutinho-Pereira, José; Dinis, Lia-Tânia; Correia, Carlos; Moriondo, Marco; Leolini, Luisa; Dibari, Camilla; Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi; Kartschall, Thomas; Menz, Christoph; Molitor, Daniel; Junk, Jürgen; Beyer, Marco; Schultz, Hans R. (MDPI, 2020-04-29)
      Viticulture and winemaking are important socioeconomic sectors in many European regions. Climate plays a vital role in the terroir of a given wine region, as it strongly controls canopy microclimate, vine growth, vine ...
    • Analysis of factors influencing deployment of fire suppression resources in Spain using artificial neural networks 

      Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi; Cardil Forradellas, Adrián; Molina Terrén, Domingo; Daniel, Sarah N.; Mavsar, Robert; Vega García, Cristina (Italian Society of Silviculture and Forest Ecology (SISEF), 2015)
      In Spain, the established fire control policy states that all fires must be controlled and put out as soon as possible. Though budgets have not restricted operations until recently, we still experience large fires and ...
    • Análisis de la estructura de la vegetación y su relación con la ocurrencia de incendios forestales 

      Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi (2010-05-27)
      Aquest estudi sorgeix de la hipòtesis de la existència d’una relació entre l’estructura del paisatge i l’ocurrència d’incendis. Per a modelitzar aquesta relació i establir models predictius, s’analitza en primer lloc ...
    • Human-caused fire occurrence modelling in perspective: a review 

      Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi; Comas Rodríguez, Carles; Vega García, Cristina (CSIRO Publishing, 2017)
      The increasing global concern about wildfires, mostly caused by people, has triggered the development of human-caused fire occurrence models in many countries. The premise is that better knowledge of the underlying factors ...
    • Lessons learned from arson wildfire incidence in reforestations and natural stands in Spain 

      Da Ponte, Emmanuel; Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi; Vega García, Cristina (MDPI, 2019-03-05)
      Wildfires are currently considered the major threat to forests in Mediterranean countries. It has been implied that a large percentage of arson-caused fires in Spain are connected with the extensive reforestation programs ...
    • Performances Evaluation of a Low-Cost Platform for High-Resolution Plant Phenotyping 

      Rossi, Riccardo; Leolini, Claudio; Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi; Leolini, Luisa; Bindi, Marco; Zaldei, Alessandro; Moriondo, Marco (MDPI, 2020-06-02)
      This study aims to test the performances of a low-cost and automatic phenotyping platform, consisting of a Red-Green-Blue (RGB) commercial camera scanning objects on rotating plates and the reconstruction of main plant ...
    • Phenological Model Intercomparison for Estimating Grapevine Budbreak Date (Vitis vinifera L.) in Europe 

      Leolini, Luisa; Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi; Santos, João A.; Menz, Christoph; Fraga, Helder; Molitor, Daniel; Merante, Paolo; Junk, Jürgen; Kartschall, Thomas; Destrac-Irvine, Agnès; Van Leeuwen, Cornelis; Malheiro, Aureliano C.; Eiras-Dias, José; Silvestre, José; Dibari, Camilla; Bindi, Marco; Moriondo, Marco (MDPI, 2020-05-29)
      Budbreak date in grapevine is strictly dependent on temperature, and the correct simulation of its occurrence is of great interest since it may have major consequences on the final yield and quality. In this study, we ...
    • Spatio-temporal analysis of human-caused fire occurrence patterns in Spain 

      Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi (Universitat de Lleida, 2017-02-17)
    • Spatio-temporal configurations of human-caused fires in Spain through point patterns 

      Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi; Comas Rodríguez, Carles; Vega García, Cristina (MDPI, 2016)
      Human-caused wildfires are often regarded as unpredictable, but usually occur in patterns aggregated over space and time. We analysed the spatio-temporal configuration of 7790 anthropogenic wildfires (2007–2013) in nine ...
    • Stochastic smoothing of point processes for wildlife-vehicle collisions on road networks 

      Borrajo, M.I.; Comas Rodríguez, Carles; Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi; Mateu, J. (Springer, 2021)
      Wildlife-vehicle collisions on road networks represent a natural problem between human populations and the environment, that affects wildlife management and raise a risk to the life and safety of car drivers. We propose ...
    • The relationship between landscape patterns and human-caused fire occurrence in Spain 

      Costafreda Aumedes, Sergi; García Martín, Alberto; Vega García, Cristina (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (INIA), 2013)
      Aim of study: Human settlements and activities have completely modified landscape structure in the Mediterranean region. Vegetation patterns show the interactions between human activities and natural processes on the ...
