Marine Island Biogeography and information on a Summer Course in the Azores
My team studies a wide range of marine groups, both recent and fossil, from a palaeontological, biogeographical, ecological, and climatic perspective. Our research is focused on the Atlantic Ocean insular systems and includes the following areas: Marine Island Biogeography theory; Geological processes in volcanic oceanic islands; Island ontogeny and sea-level changes; Spatial-temporal biogeography and biodiversity patterns; Evolution of marine species in islands. TV programs illustrate our work.
The seminar will be held on November 23, at 13:30, at the Anfiteatro A l Complexo Pedagógico.
Participation is free but mandatory to register.
