  • Quality analysis and categorisation of public space
    12 urban parks on the island of Tenerife were evaluated, combining the assessment of a trained observer and the perception of users, to analyse and categorise the environmental quality of the parks. The findings conclude that users are good evaluators of public spaces; that the Public Space Characteristics Observation Questionnaire (PSCOQ) tool allows the classification of public spaces and that physical order is capable of predicting the environmental quality and the restorative capacity of spaces, as perceived by users. The PSCOQ observation tool makes it possible to detect the strengths and weaknesses of public spaces so they can be improved and adapted to the needs of users

  • Low genetic diversity and homogeneity in Diadema africanum across distant islands with different population densities
    Diadema africanum is an important macro-herbivore that inhabits the subtropical and tropical rocky reefs of the western African coast and the archipelagos of Macaronesia. This species is investigated due to its impact on coastal rocky substrates through its considerably high density. Although much is known about the ecological role of Diadema species, studies on population genetics have not been yet performed. To explore the genetic diversity levels, phylogeographic patterns and demographic features of D. africanum, we analysed sea urchins of 14 localities across the Canary Islands and Cabo Verde archipelagos using mitochondrial marker. This study allowed us to explore the genetic connectivity across, close and within distant areas inside each archipelago. Our results indicated low levels of genetic, haplotype and nucleotide diversity of this species compared to other common sea urchins in the areas. Most populations from the two regions did not show structural genetic differences. Within the Canarian archipelago, two populations obtained a rather low number of different haplotypes and low population density, and a general genetic homogeneity was found across the studied areas. Through our finds of a recent speciation followed by population demographic expansion, we discuss the occurrence of a potential founder effect of D. africanum along the subtropical eastern Atlantic, which explains the obtained genetic features.

  • Senegal hotels and private clinics
    The target population consists of private clinics and four and five star hotels located in Senegal’s Coastal Region. Of the total of 40 clinics in the country, according to sources obtained from Senegal’s Ministry of Health, 28 are in the target region of our research. The target population in the case of hotels is made up of the four and five-star hotels that are located along Senegal’s coast, out of the total of 200 hotels that are in the area. During our research, all the clinics in the area under study were interviewed, 21 of the 28 agreed to collaborate by providing the information requested. In this case, though the statistical universe studied is 28 establishments, the sample analysed consisted of 21 cases.

  • Sea Turtle Strandings data in Tenerife (Canary Islands)
    Sea turtle populations have suffered a significant decline in recent years, mainly due to anthropogenic causes. The Canary Islands (Spain) constitute an important passage and feeding area for several species of sea turtles. Historical stranding records in this archipelago revealed a high frequency of strandings of Caretta caretta and Chelonia mydas species. Tenerife is the island with the highest sea turtle strandings, registered by the La Tahonilla Wilde Recovery Centre, which provided us with a database on strandings collected over 23 years, from January 1998 to February 2021, with a total of 1,875 registered cases. A systematic review of this database was performed, which consisted of a one-by-one review of all data, checking the consistency of each stranding record, the missing variables, the mistakes in its compilation as well as sorting all entries in the database. The cases with missing stranding or descriptive data were eliminated from the review. Finally, we selected 965 records of stranded sea turtles on the coast and at sea. This dataset contains these stranding records, identifying their main causes. It has been analyzed in the study entitled “Sea Turtle Stranding Records and fishing interactions on an Oceanic Atlantic Island, Tenerife, Canary Islands”, carried out in 2021. This study showed that the main cause of stranding for sea turtles is fishing gear, specifically nets, and hooks employed by surface longlines, that drift into Canarian waters. Furthermore, the individuals affected by this problem in the study area correspond to juvenile sea turtles.
