PhD thesis defense by Jofre Carnicer

Jofre Carnicer defended his thesis at Universitat Auntónoma de Barcelona. The thesis is entitled: “Species richness, interaction networks, and diversification in bird communities: a synthetic ecological and evolutionary perspective”. He addresses large-scale patterns of species diversity and interactions for passerine bird species, taking case studies with the North American avifauna, the bird fauna of Catalonia, and frugivorous birds in SW Spain. The defense went very well and he has already published or has in press manuscripts of several chapters. Congratulations Jofre for an excellent work!

Updated Equipo57 photo album

Equipo 57

I’ve updated the photo gallery with a special section dedicated to my favorite Equipo 57 sculptures. Equipo 57 was a group of artists based in Córdoba that had a close interaction with my father, Diego Jordano Barea, because of their shared interests in topological geometry and the possibilities of “computable art”. Please visit the web site of a recent exhibition.
