I am a Research Professor working at the Mediterranean Institute of Advanced Studies, a mixed institution of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and the University of the Balearic Islands in Mallorca (Spain). I am interested in the ecology and evolution of plant-animal interactions worldwide, especially the mutualistic ones like biotic pollination and seed dispersal, and how they contribute to the maintenance of biodiversity. I focus most of my research on island systems (Balearics, Canary Islands, Galapagos and most recently Seychelles), hotspots of biodiversity, investigating how such mutualisms are threatened by current drivers of global change (e.g. invasive species, climate change) and using the approach of network theory. Currently, I am working on a project to assess the effectiveness of vertebrates as pollinators and seed dispersers in different archipelagos. For more information, please see the website of my lab:
