El próximo jueves 31/01/2019 a las 15:00h en la Sala Seminarios del ICBiBE (Edificio de Cabecera, 2ª planta), Ángel Gálvez, estudiante predoc del grupo de Ecología y biogeografía de sistemas acuáticos, nos hablará de su proyecto de investigación sobre metacomunidades en charcas y de los muestreos realizados durante su estancia en la Costa Rica.

He says:

Metacommunities are structured by a complex set of processes involving historical, environmental and spatial components. Here we contrasted patterns of species sorting across a large diversity of taxonomic groups (from phytoplankton to vertebrates) in temporary ponds of Costa Rica and the eastern Iberian Peninsula. Temporal effects were significant but weak, and higher in the temperate system where we found also the highest environmental effects. Finally, the percentage of explained metacommunity variation was higher in the temperate compared to the tropical system, probably because of the stronger environmental filters and the lower diversity.
