Chronicle of a foretold extinction

Chronicle of a foretold extinction



The Andalusian torrillo is the first bird declared extinct in Europe in the last 50 years. The last European specimens were hunted in 1981 and are stored in the scientific collection of the EBD-CSIC. Very little was known about its natural history until a small population was discovered in some orchards near the sea in Morocco in 2007. An audiovisual walk through the past, the present and, perhaps, the future of the Andalusian Buttonquail (in Spanish, with subtitles in Spanish, French and English). Documentory of Javier Esquivias.

Highly Cited Researchers 2019



Our colleagues Montserrat Vilà and Pedro Jordano appear again in this year's list of Highly Cited Researchers published by Clarivate Analytics. Montse is included in the Category Environment/Ecology and Pedro in the "Cross-field" Category. This is an annual list recognizing influential researchers from around the world. The 2019 list contains 6216 Highly Cited Researchers, 3725 in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences and 2491 Highly Cited Researchers are identified as having exceptional performance across several fields. For the 2019 Highly Cited Researchers analysis, the papers surveyed were those published and cited during 2008-2018. To identify researchers with Cross-Field impact, highly cited paper and citations are normalized between fields and summed. The new list includes 116 researchers working in Spain, 22 from CSIC. Four Spanish researchers appear in the Environment/Ecology area (out of 169) and 36 are classified as "cross field" researchers. Congratulations!
