Sergio Chozas arrived today to Madrid for two weeks of work at MNCN. We’ll set up the analyses for the effects of human pressure and natural dynamics on the structure of the sand dune plant communities he’s studying at south-west Portugal.
About The Author
I am a biogeographer with broad interests in macroecology, community ecology, island biogeography, insect ecology, evolution, and biodiversity research. My main research aim is to determine why biodiversity – and in particular community structure – is geographically distributed the way it is, and to identify the processes that domain the spatial and temporal dynamics of ecological assemblages. Currently I am a Ramón y Cajal Research Fellow at the Department of Biogeography and Global Change of the Natural History Museum in Madrid (MNCN), a research institute of the Spanish Scientific Council (CSIC). I am also a Collaborating Professor at the Departamento de Ecologia of the Federal University of Goiás (UFG) in Brazil, and an Associate Researcher of both the Azorean Biodiversity Group – CITA A of the University of the Azores and the Centre for Environmental Biology (CBA) of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon in Portugal.
I am a biogeographer and community ecologist, working as scientific researcher at the Department of Biogeography and Global Change of the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales (CSIC).
I am also external professor of the Postgraduate Course on Ecology and Evolution of the Universidade Federal de Goiás, scientific collaborator of cE3c – Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes of the Universidade de Lisboa, and member of eBryo – Research Group on Experimental Bryology.
