I'm a Mexican biologist interested in different topics of Conservation Biology and Restoration Ecology (i.e., restoration success assessment, surrogate ecology, invertebrate conservation, information-based decision making). I've been involved in ecological restoration, applied ecology, terrestrial arthropod faunistics, university teaching and science communication. I'm also exploring the use of arachnids and ants as bioindicators in Mexican mangrove and cloud forests.

Field of study
- Spider local diversity
Diversity and temporal variation of arboreal spiders were studied in 2 cocoa plantations with different agronomic management in Chiapas, Mexico. Sampling was made by direct visual collecting on cocoa trees randomly selected. The collected specimens (8 394) represent 28 families, 66 genera and 89 morphospecies, with 57 of these identified to species...
The known distribution range of Loxosceles colima is extended towards North Central Mexico
Se presentan los datos de recolecta de cuatro nuevos registros de arañas para el estado de Guanajuato: Argiope argentata (Fabricius 1775), Castianeira dorsata (Banks 1898), C. plorans (O.P.Cambridge 1898) y Selenops gracilis Muma 1953. Adicionalmente, se proporcionan algunos datos de su historia natural y se actualiza el número de especies de araña...
The taxonomy of the monotypic genus Diguetinus Roewer, 1912 is discussed with a redescription of the only named species. The redescription, illustrations, and photographs are based upon male and female type specimens as well as a pair of more recently collected specimens from a relatively nearby location; both in Jalisco, Mexico. The genitalia are...
In the Americas, the largest number of cases of araneism is due to the genera Loxosceles, Latrodectus and Phoneutria. However, in Mexico there are no specific records of cases of araneidic accident, which makes it impossible to determine their epidemiology. Cases provoked by Kukulcania tractans and Zorocrates guerrerensis with favorable clinical ev...
Mexico has increased its efforts to recover forests in recent decades. Our paper addresses the problem of a net fall in the production of trees in official nurseries and the decline in the overall diversity of tree species produced to supply official federal programs. These reductions contrast with increases in the annual expenditures devoted to th...
Holl and Zahawi (2018) agree on a number of approaches that we describe in a local case study of tropical montane cloud forest restoration in Mexico. However, they contend our argument that most applied nucleation projects have taken place in tropical lowlands as a mistake. They also provide data on the per‐hectare cost of restoration projects in C...
Tropical Montane Cloud Forests (TMCFs) are among the vegetation types facing the greatest threats, both globally and in Mexico. Ecological restoration of TMCFs is a priority in several tropical countries. In this paper, we propose that restoration of TMCFs based on applied nucleation methods should be accompanied by a set of additional mechanisms t...
Capacity building is supposed to be an essential component for improving ecological restoration (ER) outputs in large-scale restoration efforts, but there is little information concerning the factors that should be emphasized when building ecological restoration capacities. In this work, we review a six-year experience on capacity building from a M...
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide an ambitious and comprehensive framework for addressing development needs on a global, regional, and national scale. In order for the SDG targets to be obtainable, diverse stakeholders need the technical, institutional, and organizational capacity to implement the wide variety of initi...
Assessment of mangrove restoration performance through chinampas technique in Alvarado Lagune System https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBXuhw-AUUE
Presentación que se llevará al taller de validación de la propuesta de ordenamiento ecológico local del municipio de Alvarado, Ver. Primer ordenamiento con enfoque de cambio climático.
The book contains the main results of the 1a Mexican Simposium in Ecosystem Restoration.
Presentation about the framework for the monitoring system of mangrove restoration projects of Pronatura Veracruz
Para prevenir la degradación de bosques nativos en México, una opción es establecer reservas de semillas enfocada a la recuperación de la diversidad del germoplasma de especies silvestres y cuyos puntos de diseminación sean los viveros forestales. Esto permitirá generar impactos sinérgicos, conocer la trazabilidad de la semillas, investigar la feno...
Se evaluó la riqueza de especies y la jerarquía de dominancia de grupos funcionales de arañas en chinampas utilizadas para acelerar la sucesión en zonas de manglares con alto nivel de degradación, en Veracruz, México.
The high population density in the cloud forests of Central Veracruz is one of the main threats to the survival of this ecosystem in the region and is accompanied by high marginalization levels. We modeled the value of several ecosystem services and contrasted them with recent governmental social investment in the area. The results allow the establ...
RESUMEN: las arañas violinistas son un grupo distribuido en casi todo el mundo. Todas pertenecen al género Loxosceles, el cual está conformado por 102 especies, de las cuales 36 se encuentran en México. Algunas especies se consideran de importancia médica, aunque en México no existen datos fehacientes respecto al riesgo sanitario que representan. M...
Greetings. One of my the research lines I'm interested in is the conservation of Mexican terrestrial invertebrates. The national policy only includes six species while the IUCN Red List's assesses 149 species. My final goal is to contribute to national policy, and I'd like to do some "benchmarking" . Thanks in advance!
Cabin (Cabin, R. J. 2011. Intelligent tinkering: bridging the gap between science and practice. Island Press, Washington, D.C.) used the idea of Intelligent Tinkering (I.T.) as a framework for restoring dry tropical forests in Hawai'i.
Later, Murcia & Aronson (Murcia, C. & J. Aronson. 2014. Intelligent tinkering in ecological restoration. Restoration Ecology 22: 279–283. DOI: 10.1111/rec.12100) defined the concept of Intelligent Tinkering and showed the several aspects of tinkering in the context of ecological restoration. I'd like to know if the concept of I.T. is receiving attention by ecological restoration "performers" in any country.
Greetings. I'm just preparing a sci. note about spider predation on Uropygy, but I haven't found any valuable information. I'd greatly appreciate if you can suggest some literature, since my search in data bases have been unsuccessful. Thanks in advance
I'm new to both CAPTURE & R software, and I'm just planning a set of camera trap surveys. I'd really like to know what software I should use for analysing dummy data once I get it. Thanks in advance
