EBD Seminars EBD Seminars

Our seminars (#EBDSeminar) can be attended by anyone interested to assist. They are normally given on Thursday between 13:00 and 14:00 in the conference room of the CABIMER centre (http://www.cabimer.es/web/es/), located next to our building.

During the year about 30 seminars are presented; approximately one third by invited researchers and the rest is given by our own people. Exposed issues are very diverse: scientific results, proposals for projects, protocols of services and labs, etc.

At this moment the seminar organizers are Josué Martínez de la Puente y Oscar Gordo. Contact them if you are willing to give a seminar at EBD! 

Here you can check past seminars. At our Youtube channel (DSA-EBD) several seminars are published. You can download videos here.

    • Resumen: 

      The specialists, lesser kestrel, and its close relative, the generalist common kestrel, are two protected raptors breeding in sympatry in southern Spain. In this doctorate thesis project, we want to study the movement ecology of these two falcons in a comparative way. Under the umbrella of individual specialization, we want to study the movement strategies of the two species during commuting flights, energy expenditure, habitat selection and prey selection in three study areas that differ in habitat availability. The main hypothesis is that common kestrels my show individual specialization that will be reflected in their movement strategy while lesser kestrels may be limited by their already highly specialized character.
