Grupo de Investigación en Ecología y Conservación de Aves

Using field and molecular techniques to understand the evolutionary processes that generate and maintain biodiversity.

Investigating the role of song in speciation processes of island birds. Interested in evolution, speciation, adaptation and animal communication.

Population dynamics, ecotoxicology and conservation of birds

Luis M. Carrascal is a research professor whose scientific interests are focused on the causal explanations of habitat and elevational patterns in species, and the interspecific variation in position and breadth of organisms within thermal gradients.

Ecological impacts of artificial night lighting

Behavioural ecology of birds and reptiles

I’m interested in how species deal with challenging situations such as stressful conditions, for example due to temperature or humidity, exposure to new pathogens or colonization of new environments.

Ecological and Genomic Approach to Evolutionary Divergence Mechanisms in Insular Birds

Investigating the evolutionary mechanisms that drive speciation, focusing on processes of local adaptation in populations of island birds
