Evolution and Conservation Biology Research Group

En español

Our mission is to promote research on animal population biology, from characterising phenotypic and genetic diversity to understanding the configuration of geographic distributions, in order to contribute to conservation. Although we like to use terrestrial vertebrates as models, our research is better represented by the questions we try to answer: what do we mean by biodiversity, how does it function, and how does it evolve.

Our research brings together biogeography, behavioural ecology, physiology, evolutionary ecology, population genetics and conservation biology. We use a wide array of techniques and scales of approach, spanning from geographic information systems to the molecular biology toolbox.

We believe that training young researchers is a cornerstone in the development of our field. We contribute with our firm commitment with education at every University level.
