Abstract

Las Tablas de Daimiel National Park has experienced many hydrological and ecological modifications through out its
history, both of natural as well as anthropogenic origin, which have affected its carbon storage capacity and carbon
fluxes. The study of those variations has been carried out by the analysis of its sedimentary record (geochemistry and
pollen) and historical data. The natural changes have a wider variation range than the anthropogenic ones, showrepetitive
patterns and the system reacts readjusting the equilibrium among its components. Anthropogenic effects depend on the
direct or indirect impact on the wetlands of change and its intensity. In addition, the anthropogenic impacts have the
capacity of breaking the natural balance of the ecosystem and the internal interactions.
