CONSERVATION BIOLOGY OF THREATENED SPECIES
Using as a model ungulates, our studies pivot around two main axes which in turn are interconnected:
- Assessment and in-situ and ex-situ conservation of populations of Sahel-Saharan ungulates and their habitats
- Trophic ecology, behaviour and sustainable management of native and exotic ungulates
We analyze the ecological characteristics of the environment, social structures of animals and their relationship to reproduction, population dynamics and associated adaptive processes as well as trophic interactions at different scales (herbivory, competition ...), and humans as a driver in the evolution-conservation of study species.
Ex-situ conservation: Conservation program for threatened North African ungulates in the Experimental Farm "La Hoya" of EEZA, and European captive breeding program (EEP/EAZA)
Our group corresponds to the RNM355 Research Group of the Andalusian Regional Government.
