Líneas de investigación

Biogeographer with broad interests in macroecology, ecology of related species, and ecology of parasitism. I am interested in determining the role of biotic, abiotic, and historical factors in the past and present distribution of wildlife species and their parasites, as a means to achieving effective solutions for broad-scale management and conservation problems. Given the temporal dimension of biogeographical dynamics, I use approaches based on both current and historical data –sometimes in combination with phylogenetic information– to achieve my goals and extract knowledge with which the effects of environmental changes in the future, such as those derived of global change, can be managed.

Main model hosts and pathogens

Mainly lagomorphs and ungulates and their parasites, including macro- and micro-parasites, at local and large spatial scales.
