We have met to think about evoflor new paths, specifically to address new ways of increasing the collaboration between evoflor members and how to interact even better. Read more
Este proyecto financiado por el Programa Iberoamericano de Ciencia y Tecnología para el Desarrollo (CYTED) y coordinado por el Profesor Rodrigo Medel (Universidad de Chile) aborda la gestión de las áreas naturales protegidas (ANPs en adelante) desde el dominio de las interacciones interespecíficas planta-animal.

Rubén Torices, PhD, is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Department of Evolutionary and Functional Ecology in the Experimental Station of Arid Zones (CSIC) and at the Department of Ecology and Evolution in the University of Lausanne.
My research program has been focussed on the study of species interaction and distribution. Insects, mainly beetles and butterflies, are my primary groups through my research. In particular, I study antagonisms interaction between plant and insect herbivores, above- and belowground interaction, and in more recently I focus on multitrophic interaction and the complexity of the food web. I seek to understand the ecological factors that determine the coexistence of species and the structure and function of the food web. My research is also focused on the effect of climate change on species distribution and diversity, and its effect on insect-plant interaction.
