Introduction
My research is focused on marine invasive algae thriving in the Mediterranean Sea and the process that may influence its invasibility in a climate change context. Specifically, I’m interested in how environmental conditions of the native and introduced range, as well as, invasive algae characteristics may determine establishment, spread, growth and impacts.

As invasive species spread, the ability of local communities to resist invasion depends on the strength of biotic interactions. Evolutionarily unused to the invader, native predators or herbivores may be initially wary of consuming newcomers, allowing them to proliferate. However, these relationships may be highly dynamic, and novel consumer–resour...

As invasive species spread, the ability of local communities to resist invasion depends on the strength of biotic interactions. Evolutionarily unused to the invader, native predators or herbivores may be initially unskilled or wary of consuming newcomers, allowing them to proliferate. However, these relationships may be highly dynamic, and novel co...

Morphological plasticity can enable algae to adapt to environmental change and increase their invasibility when introduced into new habitats. Nevertheless, there is still a lack of knowledge on how such plasticity can affect the invasion process of an invasive species. In this context, the high plasticity in the genus Caulerpa is well documented. H...
Article
Gradual climate change and discrete extreme climatic events have driven shifts in the structure of populations and the distribution of species in many marine ecosystems. The most profound impacts of recent warming trends have been generally observed at species’ warm edges and on large conspicuous species. However, given that different species and p...
Article
In the marine realm, biomonitoring using eDNA of benthic communities requires destructive direct sampling or the setting-up of settlement structures. Comparatively much less effort is required to sample the water column, which can be accessed remotely. In this study we assess the feasibility of obtaining information from the eukaryotic benthic comm...

Good datasets of geo-referenced records of alien species are a prerequisite for assessing the spatio-temporal dynamics of biological invasions, their invasive potential, and the magnitude of their impacts. However, with the exception of first records on a country level or wider regions, observations of species presence tend to remain unpublished, b...

Aurelia spp. are cosmopolitan scyphozoan species and probably the most studied jellyfish in the world. They inhabit nearshore waters, especially closed basins, such as coastal embayments, fjords and estuaries, occupying a great variety of habitats worldwide. Recent studies have addressed the biogeography of the genus Aurelia and reported that it co...

Pirosomatida, the only colonial order within the class Thaliacea, is still a little-known group of marine gelatinous animals inhabiting warm and temperate waters of all oceans that may form immense swarms. Pyrosoma atlanticum is the most widespread and common species of pyrosomid between 50º N and 50º S and the only species recorded so far in the M...

In the frame of the European MedSeA project research cruise (May 2013) zooplankton samples were collected by multi-net system (MOCNESS, covering the upper 600m) and Bongo nets (at 200m) from 21 stations distributed along the entire Mediterranean Sea from the Atlantic off Cadiz, Spain, to the Levantine Basin. At the same time biotic and abiotic para...

Jellyfish are fragile and poorly understood but amazing marine animals. Trying to create adequate technics to keep them alive and in good conditions in aquaria represents a great challenge. Moreover the interest for culture these animals has been significantly increasing in the last decades. Growing techniques with a scientific purpose are improvin...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
During the MedSeA project Cruise (May 2013) plankton samples were collected by multi-net system (MOCNESS) covering the upper 600m and plankton nets (Bongo) at 200m. A main aim of this study is to improve our understanding of the environmental factors controlling the understudied gelatinous plankton distribution in the Mediterranean Sea. Zooplankton...
