Starting fieldwork in Teno Bajo

  Starting fieldwork in Teno Bajo: “ We (Alfredo, Néstor and myself) are this week with field work in Teno Bajo (Teneriffe), finishing georreferencing and sampling of orijama (Neochamaelea pulverulenta) plants in the study plots. The work is going fine in this spectacular site. We study seed dispersal by the Gallotia endemic lizards to analyze the consequences of this specialized dispersal system on the genetic structure of the plant.” (Via Weblog de Pedro.)


Gibraltar: “Arrived from a Symposium in Gibraltar: the CALPE Conference dedicated this year to the Pleistocene ecological changes and the evolution of bird migrations systems. It was an homage to the work of Reginald Moreau organized by Clive Finlayson and people at the Museum.”
