Institute for Game and Wildlife Research

Home Research Research groups

Research groups

Researchers from the Institute for Research in Hunting Resources (IREC – CSIC, UCLM, JCCM) are organized into five Research Groups that cover the different sciences oriented to the study of hunting species and wild fauna. Among them, collaborations are also frequent to carry out interdisciplinary studies with which to respond to complex problems of management and conservation of species and their environment.

For each of them, on their respective pages on the IREC website, you can consult outstanding general information, their research lines and projects, their scientific production (scientific and informative publications), their training capacity, the doctoral theses they have developed and the IREC research staff they make up.
