            The group conducts research projects related to the factors and mechanisms that determine the resilience of marine benthic ecosystems face to the global change impacts. To this end the group adopted a multidisciplinary ranging from taxonomy and systematics, to species biology, structure and dynamics of populations and communities, both benthic and planktonic, and the relationship of biological processes with environmental factors. The multidisciplinary approach implies that the studies contemplate a wide range of analytical, experimental (in the field and in the laboratory), statistical and modeling techniques. The team works mainly in the littoral and platform benthic ecosystems in which it has a long experience (campaigns in oceanographic and coastal areas with SCUBA-diving). The research activities is complemented by a long experience in educational and scientific outreach activities.,

            The group was created in 1997 as a Quality Group (Generalitat de Catalunya) and became a CSIC group in 2004. Currently it includes 6 senior scientists, 3 RyC, 7 postdocs, 14 PhD students and 7 technicians. Its main goal is understanding the ecological role of marine microbes. The group applies complementary tools to samples from oceanographic cruises, coastal observatories and lab experiments. It also maintains well-equipped laboratories for molecular biology, culturing, flow cytometry, microscopy and bioinformatics. The group is funded by national and EU projects and has participated in the global circumnavigations Malaspina and TaraOceans, as well as in polar expeditions. During the period 2017-2021, the group has published 161 papers in ISI journals, most of them (81%) in Q1 journals, 42% in D1 journals and 23% in journals with IF >9. The group has a strong commitment to outreach and participates in events addressed to schools or general public.,

            Since its creation in 1990, the research group has been studying continent-ocean interactions within the coastal ecosystem, including continental flows and their implications for the marine environment, mainly the nutritional enrichment of coastal waters and its consequences: harmful algal blooms and eutrophication. These studies include researching the mechanisms relevant to the associated biological processes and the relationships between continental inputs, spatial structure, and land use. The group is mainly devoted to basic science but it also addresses the growing demands arising from management criteria and legislation enacted by society and, in particular, by the European Union on environmental quality, human health and wellbeing. Currently, funding of the PBL’s research has been secured until 2024 mainly from European public sources. The group also has a strong commitment to science dissemination and outreach.,

                The scientific collection of vertebrates includes specimens - naturalized or conserved in alcohol – of fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Very recently an invertebrate collections is being set up (insects and mites). These items are available to scientists worldwide for use in the study of systematics, zoogeography, ecology, genetics, etc. and are from different geographical areas: the Iberian Peninsula, Africa, South America and Asia. The collection of fishes is the smallest, with some 9,000 specimens (300 species); the herpetological collection contains 22,000 specimens of reptiles (450 species) and 15,000 amphibians (150 species); the ornithological collection has around 33,000 specimens (2,300 species); and the mammal collection some 34,000 specimens (1,300 species). Currently the main aim is the use of the collection by the scientific community, completing and updating the stock catalogue and facilitating access to it. Due to the considerable number of requests for tissue samples for molecular genetics research, a tissue bank has been set up with mammal dermal specimens. Since 2017, the Scientific Collections are part of our Large Scale Facility ICTS-RBD,

                  Our goal is to improve the conceptual integration of the different levels of complexity in explaining trait evolution and species diversification. We are pushing the boundaries of current evolutionary theory by examining the possible role of both genetic and non-genetic inheritance, the role of the environment as a phenotypic inductor via epigenetic regulation, and the possibility that such epigenetic changes may evolve under selection into accommodated genetic variation. One important characteristic of this research line is its interdisciplinary component, based on the integration of several approaches, mainly evolutionary ecology, population genetics, and theoretical ecology. This results in an eminently collaborative research. We dig into the histories of species, populations and communities using both traditional genetics and new omics tools. By incorporating and consolidating novel molecular techniques we seek to test ecological hypotheses, study host-parasite interactions, and identify functional polymorphisms in candidate genes to account for ecologically and evolutionarily divergent life history traits.,

                    We perform multidisciplinary research aiming at providing the scientific knowledge needed for the conservation of biodiversity in all its forms. Our research is oriented towards threatened ecosystems, communities, species and populations. We have no a priori taxonomic or regional bias. Nevertheless due to historical and practical reasons most of our work deals with vertebrates. We use long-term data series to evaluate changes in composition, processes and dynamics in ecosystems, communities, populations and individuals as well as the impact of specific human activities at local, regional and global levels and the role of global change drivers. We make use techniques from many disciplines (physiology, epidemiology, complex systems modeling, etc) in order to determine causes, evaluate effects and make projections. We work in cooperation with other researchers both from CSIC and national and international Universities and research institutions.,

                        Our group applies many different approaches within inland and estuarine wetlands, with much research carried out in Andalusia (notably Doñana), as well as other parts of the Mediterranean. Our key difference with other research groups is our focus on aquatic systems. Group members have been researching into aquatic birds, amphibians and reptiles for several decades. During the last 15 years we have broadened our research lines and now conduct quality research into aquatic invertebrates and plants, parasites and emergent diseases, and remote sensing of wetlands. We have strength in population dynamics, community and metacommunity ecology, restoration ecology, population genetics, biological invasions and ecotoxicology. Much of our research is focused on the diverse interactions between waterbirds, amphibians or aquatic reptiles and other organisms, and novel research for over a decade has made us world leaders on the passive dispersal of seeds and invertebrates by waterbirds.,

                                  Islands have been considered as the best natural laboratories for the study of plant and animal evolution. Their evolutionary uniqueness and isolation make island dwellers prone to extinction in a scenario of climatic change and biodiversity crisis. Insular taxa form simplified communities, where ecological relationships and evolutionary processes can be studied more easily than on the continent. The Balearic Islands are particularly vulnerable to global change and human perturbations. Because of their reduced territory, their rich biodiversity (555 animal and 130 plant endemic taxa) is threatened by loss of habitats and introduction of alien species. The research group covers a broad expertise in taxonomic, biogeographic, evolutionary and ecological issues of insular biotas. The methodological approach is multidisciplinary, combining morphological, distributional, population and molecular data to improve our understanding and promote the conservation of insular unique biotas.,

                                      The group pursues to advance the knowledge of the marine pelagic ecosystem, promote novel research and foster social awareness of the significance of protecting ocean health. Our main research focuses on studying the structure and dynamics of plankton, its response to environmental disturbances, and its role in the cycling of key chemical elements in the ocean. We investigate the response of plankton ecosystems to ocean warming, stratification, acidification, turbulence, atmospheric deposition, continental runoff and pollution, and explore solutions to abate anthropogenic impacts. In order to tackle these objectives, we use a wide array of laboratory techniques, innovative experimental and field approaches, time series monitoring, remote sensing data analysis, and computer model simulations. By integrating these approaches, methodologies and analytical tools, we aim to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the ocean plankton ecosystem.,

Currently it includes 6 senior scientists, 3 RyC, 7 postdocs, 14 PhD students and 7 technicians. Its main goal is understanding the ecological role of marine microbes. The group applies complementary tools to samples from oceanographic cruises, coastal observatories and lab experiments. It also maintains well-equipped laboratories for molecular biology, culturing, flow cytometry, microscopy and bioinformatics. The group is funded by national and EU projects and has participated in the global circumnavigations Malaspina and TaraOceans, as well as in polar expeditions. During the period 2017-2021, the group has published 161 papers in ISI journals, most of them (81%) in Q1 journals, 42% in D1 journals and 23% in journals with IF >9. The group has a strong commitment to outreach and participates in events addressed to schools or general public.",

We are pushing the boundaries of current evolutionary theory by examining the possible role of both genetic and non-genetic inheritance, the role of the environment as a phenotypic inductor via epigenetic regulation, and the possibility that such epigenetic changes may evolve under selection into accommodated genetic variation. One important characteristic of this research line is its interdisciplinary component, based on the integration of several approaches, mainly evolutionary ecology, population genetics, and theoretical ecology. This results in an eminently collaborative research. We dig into the histories of species, populations and communities using both traditional genetics and new omics tools. By incorporating and consolidating novel molecular techniques we seek to test ecological hypotheses, study host-parasite interactions, and identify functional polymorphisms in candidate genes to account for ecologically and evolutionarily divergent life history traits.,

Very recently an invertebrate collections is being set up (insects and mites). These items are available to scientists worldwide for use in the study of systematics, zoogeography, ecology, genetics, etc. and are from different geographical areas: the Iberian Peninsula, Africa, South America and Asia. The collection of fishes is the smallest, with some 9,000 specimens (300 species); the herpetological collection contains 22,000 specimens of reptiles (450 species) and 15,000 amphibians (150 species); the ornithological collection has around 33,000 specimens (2,300 species); and the mammal collection some 34,000 specimens (1,300 species). Currently the main aim is the use of the collection by the scientific community, completing and updating the stock catalogue and facilitating access to it. Due to the considerable number of requests for tissue samples for molecular genetics research, a tissue bank has been set up with mammal dermal specimens. Since 2017, the Scientific Collections are part of our Large Scale Facility ICTS-RBD,

Part of this research is recorded in the changes associated with climate change and the possible evolution of habitat availability and the future distributions of both endemic species and communities and their functionality. My research has necessitated the long-term monitoring of some aquatic ecosystems in order to be able to differentiate the interannual variability of change trends over time in these ecosystems, as well as some emblematic or vulnerable species. ,

We are pushing the boundaries of current evolutionary theory by examining the possible role of both genetic and non-genetic inheritance, the role of the environment as a phenotypic inductor via epigenetic regulation, and the possibility that such epigenetic changes may evolve under selection into accommodated genetic variation. One important characteristic of this research line is its interdisciplinary component, based on the integration of several approaches, mainly evolutionary ecology, population genetics, and theoretical ecology. This results in an eminently collaborative research. We dig into the histories of species, populations and communities using both traditional genetics and new omics tools. By incorporating and consolidating novel molecular techniques we seek to test ecological hypotheses, study host-parasite interactions, and identify functional polymorphisms in candidate genes to account for ecologically and evolutionarily divergent life history traits.,

One important characteristic of this research line is its interdisciplinary component, based on the integration of several approaches, mainly evolutionary ecology, population genetics, and theoretical ecology. This results in an eminently collaborative research. We dig into the histories of species, populations and communities using both traditional genetics and new omics tools. By incorporating and consolidating novel molecular techniques we seek to test ecological hypotheses, study host-parasite interactions, and identify functional polymorphisms in candidate genes to account for ecologically and evolutionarily divergent life history traits.,

Our key difference with other research groups is our focus on aquatic systems. Group members have been researching into aquatic birds, amphibians and reptiles for several decades. During the last 15 years we have broadened our research lines and now conduct quality research into aquatic invertebrates and plants, parasites and emergent diseases, and remote sensing of wetlands. We have strength in population dynamics, community and metacommunity ecology, restoration ecology, population genetics, biological invasions and ecotoxicology. Much of our research is focused on the diverse interactions between waterbirds, amphibians or aquatic reptiles and other organisms, and novel research for over a decade has made us world leaders on the passive dispersal of seeds and invertebrates by waterbirds.,

Our research is oriented towards threatened ecosystems, communities, species and populations. We have no a priori taxonomic or regional bias. Nevertheless due to historical and practical reasons most of our work deals with vertebrates. We use long-term data series to evaluate changes in composition, processes and dynamics in ecosystems, communities, populations and individuals as well as the impact of specific human activities at local, regional and global levels and the role of global change drivers. We make use techniques from many disciplines (physiology, epidemiology, complex systems modeling, etc) in order to determine causes, evaluate effects and make projections. We work in cooperation with other researchers both from CSIC and national and international Universities and research institutions.,

Our key difference with other research groups is our focus on aquatic systems. Group members have been researching into aquatic birds, amphibians and reptiles for several decades. During the last 15 years we have broadened our research lines and now conduct quality research into aquatic invertebrates and plants, parasites and emergent diseases, and remote sensing of wetlands. We have strength in population dynamics, community and metacommunity ecology, restoration ecology, population genetics, biological invasions and ecotoxicology. Much of our research is focused on the diverse interactions between waterbirds, amphibians or aquatic reptiles and other organisms, and novel research for over a decade has made us world leaders on the passive dispersal of seeds and invertebrates by waterbirds.,

We are pushing the boundaries of current evolutionary theory by examining the possible role of both genetic and non-genetic inheritance, the role of the environment as a phenotypic inductor via epigenetic regulation, and the possibility that such epigenetic changes may evolve under selection into accommodated genetic variation. One important characteristic of this research line is its interdisciplinary component, based on the integration of several approaches, mainly evolutionary ecology, population genetics, and theoretical ecology. This results in an eminently collaborative research. We dig into the histories of species, populations and communities using both traditional genetics and new omics tools. By incorporating and consolidating novel molecular techniques we seek to test ecological hypotheses, study host-parasite interactions, and identify functional polymorphisms in candidate genes to account for ecologically and evolutionarily divergent life history traits.,

We use long-term data series to evaluate changes in composition, processes and dynamics in ecosystems, communities, populations and individuals as well as the impact of specific human activities at local, regional and global levels and the role of global change drivers.

We are pushing the boundaries of current evolutionary theory by examining the possible role of both genetic and non-genetic inheritance, the role of the environment as a phenotypic inductor via epigenetic regulation, and the possibility that such epigenetic changes may evolve under selection into accommodated genetic variation. One important characteristic of this research line is its interdisciplinary component, based on the integration of several approaches, mainly evolutionary ecology, population genetics, and theoretical ecology. This results in an eminently collaborative research. We dig into the histories of species, populations and communities using both traditional genetics and new omics tools. By incorporating and consolidating novel molecular techniques we seek to test ecological hypotheses, study host-parasite interactions, and identify functional polymorphisms in candidate genes to account for ecologically and evolutionarily divergent life history traits.,

In recent years she has worked at the Spanish Institute of Oceanography on different projects, the objective of which is to contribute to the protection and sustainable use of biodiversity in the Spanish seas by identifying valuable spaces for the Natura 2000 Network, as well as in other areas of the world with Spanish fishing interests like Indian Ocean (Mozambique), SW Atlantic (Patagonia), NW Atlantic (Canada), Nord Sea (Hatton Bank), SE Atlantic (Namibia), Antarctica or Cantabrian Sea (Spain). During her research career, until today, she has produced 47 scientific articles (Zootaxa, Zookeys, Frontiers, JMBA(UK), etc.) and is the co-author of 19 books or book chapters related to the marine environment, ecology, taxonomy, biodiversity or Vulnerable marine ecosystems. She has worked in 16 research projects funded by public call and in 7 sectorial research projects of special relevance funded by companies and / or administrations, about the results of an investigation or with new content. She was in charge or as member of a team for the preparation of 16 scientific reports for different government agencies. She has presented 117 scientific communications at conferences (99 international and 14 national). She carried out 10 research stays in 3 foreign centers and 1 Spanish. She has participated in 18 marine research cruises on the coasts of the Atlantic Ocean, SW (Patagonia, Argentina), NW (European coasts), SE (abyssal basins of the Cape, Angola and Guinea); Antarctica, Arctic and Indian Ocean (Mozambique). She has taught 6 courses related to the marine environment and received 26. Professor of interns at the Universities of Málaga and Alcalá. She is a reviewer for the journals Polar Biology, Journal of Natural History, Zootaxa, JMBA and Zoologische Mededelingen, and editor of WoRMS (World Porifera Database). Currently Senior Scientist in the Oceanographic Centre of Gijon (IEO-CSIC) In the last five years, her lines of research have been directed to studies related to biodiversity, and to the characterization and conservation of benthic communities in Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VMEs), both in the Cantabrian Sea and in the Arctic, Canada, Indian Ocean or Patagonia. A very special section of this line of work has been occupied by the structuring species associated with VMEs that present a fragile structure of biological origin, such as coral reefs and sponge grounds. They are the bioconstructor species that, due to their morphology and development, they create environments that can be used to host other species. The research effort carried out and in the coming years also aims to know and conserve the benthic communities that make up the VMEs, which is essential even to guarantee the sustainability of fishery resources.

The group emphasizes the interactions between all components of the Earth system, addressing impacts on biodiversity and biogeochemistry, as well as assessing the role ecosystems play in mitigation and adaptation to global change, both in marine and terrestrial systems. These objectives are addressed through multidisciplinary long-term monitoring, experiments, field observations, data mining and modelling. The marine research lines of the GCR group include (1) metabolism in seagrass meadows, modification of the carbon system by marine vegetation, ocean acidification and warming; (2) function of and services provided by marine ecosystems dominated by macrophyte; (3) coastal ecosystem responses to pressures and to the release of pressures, with particular interest in no linear responses; and (4) scientific support to marine ecosystem conservation polices. The terrestrial systems are studied mostly under the framework of network theory, assessing how different drivers of Global Change (specifically habitat loss, invasive species, agricultural intensification, and climate change) alter the ecological interactions between species, as well as their resilience. The main ongoing research lines encompass (1) the ecological complexity of small islands; (2) pollination ecology; (3) conservation of insect pollinators.,

The marine research lines of the GCR group include (1) metabolism in seagrass meadows, modification of the carbon system by marine vegetation, ocean acidification and warming; (2) function of and services provided by marine ecosystems dominated by macrophyte; (3) coastal ecosystem responses to pressures and to the release of pressures, with particular interest in no linear responses; and (4) scientific support to marine ecosystem conservation polices. The terrestrial systems are studied mostly under the framework of network theory, assessing how different drivers of Global Change (specifically habitat loss, invasive species, agricultural intensification, and climate change) alter the ecological interactions between species, as well as their resilience. The main ongoing research lines encompass (1) the ecological complexity of small islands; (2) pollination ecology; (3) conservation of insect pollinators.,

                                                                                                                  Islands have been considered as the best natural laboratories for the study of plant and animal evolution. Their evolutionary uniqueness and isolation make island dwellers prone to extinction in a scenario of climatic change and biodiversity crisis. Insular taxa form simplified communities, where ecological relationships and evolutionary processes can be studied more easily than on the continent. The Balearic Islands are particularly vulnerable to global change and human perturbations. Because of their reduced territory, their rich biodiversity (555 animal and 130 plant endemic taxa) is threatened by loss of habitats and introduction of alien species. The research group covers a broad expertise in taxonomic, biogeographic, evolutionary and ecological issues of insular biotas. The methodological approach is multidisciplinary, combining morphological, distributional, population and molecular data to improve our understanding and promote the conservation of insular unique biotas.,
