Activity summary

My scientific work has been mostly devoted to marine ecology and conservation, studying patterns and processes of abundance and distribution. Population dynamics and sustainable harvesting of invertebrates in marine protected areas. The study of processes that influence the intertidal ecosystems structure and functioning. Anthropogenic impacts on marine habitats, specially by the building of artificial structures and by the introduction of alien species.
