Detalles del evento


Pollinators are threatened by a human induced rapid environmental change. In this talk I will review what we know of the current threads to pollintors, and how pollinator are responding to threads such as habitat loss, global warming or species invasions. Understanding this responses is key to understand ecosystem functioning as more than 80% of the plants worldwide depend on pollinators to maximize its reproduction, including most agricultural crops. Hence, I will conclude by summarizing what we know of the consequences of pollinator declines for crop production.

About the Lecturer

I am a researcher at EBD-CSIC (Doñana Biological Station), Seville, funded by a Ramón y Cajal Fellowship. I am broadly interested in understanding how global change drivers impact community structure and composition, and how those impacts translate to the ecosystem functioning. I like to work with plant-pollinator communities because they show complex responses to land use change, climate warming or biological invasions, and encapsulate a critical ecosystem function, pollination.
