We are conservation biologists and our aim is to provide the necessary scientific knowledge to collaborate in the preservation and management of biodiversity, mainly, but not exclusively, in Mediterranean ecosystems. An important part of our research focuses on identifying conservation problems of animal species or groups of species particularly relevant for their contribution to the functionality of ecosystems: endangered species or key species.

We also apply biology to provide the public administrations with the scientific bases to adequately manage biodiversity, including solutions to infrastructure impacts, land use, generation and transport of energy, among others. Consequently, our activity is not limited to the study of natural areas such National parks or other protected areas, but expands to areas with intensive human presence and use. We try to make these uses compatibles with high levels of biodiversity, looking for a healthy biological environment.

We are also interested on the evaluation of management and conservation plans conducted by the public administration, looking for the necessary improvement and the dissemination of results. We work at different scales, from the individual (genetic aspect, physiology, etc) to the population level (demography, spatial analyses, simulation models, etc). During the last years we have been working in different areas of Spain (including islands) as well as in Europe (Italy, Finland, Norway, Germany, Scotland, etc.), Africa (Morocco, Senegal, Cabo Verde, Mali, etc), America (Chili, Argentina and Colombia) and Antarctica.
