Structure and functioning of Mediterranean aquatic ecosystems
Responses to global change
Predictive modeling to know the responses of species, populations and communities to natural and anthropogenic multi-stressors.
Biogeography and biodiversity conservation
Biodiversity inventories (mainly those referred to Coleoptera, Hemiptera and Mollusca); assigning species conservation priorities (e.g., red list of threatened species), and areas (e.g., biodiversity hotspots), assessing the role of protected areas in representing biodiversity attributes, etc.
Restoration of aquatic ecosystems
Riparian and river restoration plans, monitoring and evaluation of actions, invasive species control, ecological quality assessments, environmental flows.
