Animal Biology

Research group

The Animal Biology Research Group (GRCT0018) is interested in understanding in how animals live and reproduce, which functions they carry out in the ecosystem, how they relate to each other, how they respond to environmental changes and what conservation problems they pose. We have specialised in assessing biodiversity in the land and marine environments, and relating that assessment to today’s main environmental challenges: climate change, forest fires, overfishing, invasive species and fragmentation of the habitat. Our researchers regularly publish in international magazines of the areas of the Zoology, Ecology, Biodiversity Conservation, Sylviculture, Fishing, Ichthyology, Entomology and Ornithology. For these studies we have used ants, cicadas, fish, reptiles, birds and mammals as our main indicator groups.

The Animal Biology Research Group belongs to the Department of Environmental Sciences and most of its members also belong to the Catalan government’s Consolidated Research Group on Ecological Perturbations and Land Animal Communities (Pecat- 2017 SGR 10).
