Project description Global change is driving biodiversity loss at unprecedented rates constituting a global threat to human welfare and ecological stability. Consequences of such changes (e.g., warming, drought, salinization) are particularly pervasive in aquatic ecosystems (e.g., ponds, lakes, rivers). Ecosystem services (i.e., benefits provided to people, both directly and indirectly) by
My recent interview to the magazine Lisboa (page 54, sorry in Portuguese alone) where I talk about broad issues of sustainability, biogeography, climate change, economics, and how these issues are linked together through the concept of metabolism.
2 years postdoc position in the context of the PredWeb (Predicting Food-Web Biogeography). Project, funded through the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities. Background: Biogeography examines distributions of species and communities at broad geographical scales of extent and it is often assumed that interactions among species are second-order effects, with the relationship
This is our little tribute to Alexander von Humboldt while disseminating the results of our recent paper in Nature Communications about climate determination of animal community trophic structures. https://youtu.be/1WwGVnNFJOY
Community trophic structure typical of seasonal tropical climates https://youtu.be/1WwGVnNFJOY In Spanish here Climate determines the arquitectures of trophic structures and human activities simplify them. This is the main conclusion of a study published today in Nature Communications, by Manuel Mendoza and Miguel B. Araújo. Using the geographic distributions and feeding

Background: Nature’s complexity is intriguing, but the circumstances determining whether or how order emerges from such complexity remains a matter of
