Bernat Claramunt Lopez, Ph.D.
Researcher and Ecology Lecturer, CREAF (Centre for Ecological Research and Forestry Applications)
Dr. Bernat Claramunt-Lopez’s initial research was focused in plant ecology, but his interest in animal ecology started during his post-doc in a project on the grazing effects of herbivores in semi-arid ecosystems of South America. He then focused on the alpine species of the Pyrenees. In 2008 he started building a database to study the interactions among vertebrates in alpine ecosystems, totaling more than 400 species and 2,500 interactions. Dr. López is part of the Scientific Committee of the Observatoire Pyreneen pour le Changement du Climat, and collaborates with the Catalan Office for Climate Change as an expert in alpine biodiversity.
Biologist and an Expert Birdwatcher
Jana Marco has combined her degree study years with an active professional life collaborating in several projects and campaigns such as Greek tortoise volunteering, Alpine marmot studies, and has focused on bird census for research projects. She is currently developing her own project supported by the ecology department of the University of Alicante on the wild population of European hedgehog, focusing on behavior, home range and ecology. She is also working with the University of Miguel Hernandez studying the trends, ecology, and interactions of the raptors community on the southern wetlands of the Iberian Peninsula.
