Opinion article in the newspaper Expresso / Artigo de opinião no jornal Expresso: "Apesar do valor estratégico dos aquíferos, a política de ordenamento e gestão do uso de solo, nomeadamente a que decorre da intensificação da produção agrícola e florestal, não tem garantido a máxima infiltração da água das chuvas. Urge estudar a dinâmica de recarga, monitorizar a captação de águas subterrâneas e
Congratulations to Nuria Galiana who was awarded a Marie Marie Skłodowska-Currie research fellowship to work with us on issues related to the biogeography of food webs. While we are all waiting for the paper work to be finished, we made a few questions so that we can get to know her better. Below her answers. - Tell us a little bit about your professional background? I
AQUACOSM-plus offers funding for mesocosm experiments through a unique collaborative international project, representing a full cross section of aquatic ecosystems. It is a good opportunity to visit and work in our Iberian-wide distributed pond mesocosm facility set up to examine the effects of climate change on aquatic biodiversity.

CORESCAM: Studying Coastal Biodiversity Resilience to Increasing Extreme Events in Central America. A project co-led by Rosa Román Cuesta (CIFOR), Ana Rey and Miguel Bastos Araújo (both from MNCN-CSIC). Synthesis: Central America (Mesoamerica+Caribbean) has been dubbed the miner’s canary of climate change due to the marked increase in extreme events and their impacts over humans and
Kudos for Shirin Taheri who just published the first article from her PhD thesis in Global Change Biology. We show that determinants of bird species range shifts in Great Britain, in the past decades, is likely driven by a combination of factors (climate change, land-cover change, and stochasticity) and that the strength of the signal of each one of these factors varies across the

How are global diversity gradients formed? What are the main underlying driving mechanism? Can we tease them apart easily? These are some of the topics addressed in the lecture recorded on the 15th of June 2020 with the title "Understanding Species Diversity: Ecological and Evolutionary Approaches". The lecture was given in the context of the MSC in Palaeontology jointly put together by NOVA
I am thrilled to have contributed to the decision to recognise The Guardian with the BIOPHILIA Award for its leading role in global efforts to communicate good-quality and information about the environmental challenges of our times. The original nomination was supported by several prestigious leaders in the field, including recently deceased Georgina Mace. The full justification for the
