https://youtu.be/DIrNac2Eauk We - Shirin Taherim Babak Naimi, Carsten Rahbek and Miguel B. Araújo - just published the study in Science Advances. We reviewed 240 reports of climate-related species-range shifts and classified them based on three criteria. We ask whether observed distributional shifts are compared against random expectations, whether multicausal factors are examined on
Quando um leigo me pergunta sobre o objeto da minha investigação, nem sempre é fácil de explicar numa frase. Na verdade, quem trabalha em biodiversidade trabalha com sistemas complexos. Logo, para entender estes sistemas, para os modelar, para projetar dinâmicas futuras, são diversas as ramificações por onde se estende a investigação. Consciente da dificuldade em sintetizar a diversidade muitos

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
I was happy to share some thoughts on biodiversity, climate change and conservation planning to the representatives of the environmental ministries of CPLP (referring to the "Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries"). My presentation starts at
I was asked to write an essay about climate change adaptation. The original version can be read here, but I copy below the full text too because the format is not the most user friendly: Adaptação à mudança num contexto de complexidade e incerteza O mundo encontra-se num processo de transformação profunda. Se as alterações climáticas e a perda de biodiversidade globais já estavam na agenda
Below we will be sharing regular updates on estimated changes in climate suitability for SARS-CoV-2 transmission after incorporation of new data on positive cases. The most updated maps will be provided on the top of the page. 1st May (includes t_mean, t_min*t_max, precipitation, evapotranspiration, radiation) 31 March (includes t_mean, t_min*t_max, precipitation,
