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.

Ismael Galván awarded with Francisco Bernis Prize



Our colleague Ismael Galván has received the Francisco Bernis Research Award for "the originality of the approach he uses in his studies on the role of melanins in bird ecology and evolution. The use of new methods is also acknowledged, combining mechanistic, ecological and evolutionary questions that allow to better understand senescence and sexual and social selection". Congratulations Ishmael!
