Selected publications

Where do our deer come from?

A collaboration between researchers at universities iberico-americanas reveals the evolutionary history of the stag (Cervus elaphus) in the Iberian Peninsula and its relationship with other European populations. The team, led by researchers at the University...

Tick parasitism in the Mediterranean spur-thighed tortoise in the Maamora forest, Morocco

The h-bombs in general and ectoparasites have particular potential to regulate the dynamics of host populations. In this context, this study evaluates the parasitation tick in a population of turtle...

Evaluation of methods to monitor wild mammals on Mediterranean farmland

Managers need methods to monitor wild populations, who have the best possible balance between cost and accuracy. Monitoring is particularly important to determine population density and richness...

High prevalence and intensity of Stephanurus dentatus in a population of wild boar (Sus scrofa) in south western Spain

In the period from October 2016 and February 2017, urinary tracts of 390 feral pigs (Sus scrofa) in four areas of the Centre-South of Spain (102 of the Doñana National Park; 150...

Body proportions for the facilitation of walking, running and flying: the case of partridges

Predation is one of the most important forces of natural selection. Species which are dams can optimize foraging behavior and escape predators according to their mobility that is...

Dietary canthaxanthin reduces xanthophyll uptake and red coloration in adult red-legged partridges

Supplementation with canthaxanthin is a common practice in commercial feed that according to this study would be counterproductive to the objective pursued. Carotenoids give color to animal signs that often...

Metal pollution in the Odiel Marshes: An ecological trap for the black-necked grebe

The Marismas del Odiel are a haven for biodiversity, especially for a multitude of water birds such as the black-necked grebe (Podiceps nigricollis), classified as "Near threatened" species on the red list of the...

Mammalian susceptibility to a neonicotinoid insecticide after fetal and early postnatal exposure

The neonicotinoids have become the class of insecticides most commonly used throughout the world. Although numerous studies have documented the toxicity of neonicotinoids on bees and other insects, the effects...

Metals in blood and feathers of common moorhens from wetlands that receive treated wastewater.

In this study addressed the hypothesis that birds in the eutrophic wetlands receiving effluents from wastewater treatment of wastewater (wastewater treatment plant) are exposed to high levels of metals and non-metals, the...

Bioinspired models for assessing the importance of transhumance and transboundary management in the conservation of European avian scavengers.

Assessment of spatio-temporal trophic resources availability is an important requirement in the development of management tools for effective conservation action. This is especially interesting for the conservation of...
