Introduction
I am starting my thesis about carry-over effects and migration behaviour in seabirds. Concretly I am working with procellariforms. My fieldwork take place in a colony of Cory's shearwaters in Canary Island.

Description
  • My thesis project is about carry-over effect and seasonal interactions in atlantic procellariform seabirds. I concentrate my research in migratory information and reproductive success of some different procellariform species in diverse populations among Atlantic ocean and Mediterranean sea.

Description
  • The work was related with seabirds. I create and manage the web page of the group. I participate on fieldwork in Medas Islands, sampling Larus michahellis. Also I coordinated and led the fieldwork in Canary Island. There we worked sampling Calonectris borealis and deploying GPS and GLS.

Description
  • The work was related with seabirds. The main task was identify and classify diverse samples (specially cadavers) in freezers and a cold room. I participate on fieldwork in Medas Islands, sampling Larus michahellis. Also I coordinated and led the fieldwork in Canary Island. There we worked sampling Calonectris borealis and deploying GPS and GLS.

Article
Seabirds have been proposed as suitable candidates for tracking and monitoring changes in marine systems (bioindicators). However, their suitability depends on our ability to link the large degree of environmental variability inherent to marine systems with a few, relevant, and accessible signals (biomarkers) informing on changes in their feeding b...

Understanding how climate driven environmental changes are affecting trophic pathways within marine communities is challenging due to their open, dynamic and complex nature. Seabirds have been proposed as suitable candidates for tracking and monitoring changes in marine systems (ecological indicators). However, their suitability will depend on our...
Presentation
Las actividades pesqueras y acuícolas representan uno de los mayores impactos antropogénicos sobre los ecosistemas marinos. En España, durante la pasada década, se creó una amplia Red de Áreas Marinas Protegidas (RAMPE) para minimizar dicho impacto; sin embargo, su eficacia todavía está por determinar. Aquí evaluamos el papel de la actual RAMPE en...
Article
1. Ornamental coloration is frequently an honest signal of quality associated with sexual selection. While changes in average environmental conditions affect carotenoid- and melanin-based coloration, no evidence exists that changes in intrinsic environmental predictability affect coloration. 2. Here we experimentally manipulated the intrinsic pred...
