My main interest is focused on the macrofaunalcommunities from Mediterranean temporary ponds. Specifically, I’ve been working on the relationships between pond sizeand community structure and composition. I also study the effect of some environmental filters such as salinity or altitude on the macrofaunacommunity. The effect of connectivity within metacommunities is also a topic I’m interested on.
