Seminarios EBD Seminarios EBD

Los seminarios que organiza la EBD-CSIC (#EBDSeminar) están abiertos a todo el público interesado. Normalmente se dan los jueves de las 13:00-14:00 en la sala de conferencias del CABIMER (http://www.cabimer.es/web/es/), centro del CSIC contiguo a la EBD.

A lo largo del año se suelen dar unos 30 seminarios; aproximadamente una tercera parte son impartidos por invitados de otros centros, y el resto por personal propio.

La temática tratada es muy amplia: trabajos científicos cerrados, propuestas de estudios, funcionamiento de laboratorios y servicios, etc. Actualmente los organizadores de los seminarios son varios investigadores postdoctorales de la EBD: María José Ruiz López, Irene Mendoza, Maria Teresa Boquete, Christoph Liedke, David García Callejas y Elena Angulo. ¡Contacta con ellos si te interesa dar un seminario!

Aqui puedes consultar el listado de seminarios pasados. En nuestro canal de Youtube se publican videos de varios de ellos. Si quieres descargar un video puedes encontrarlos aqui.

    • Resumen: 

      As a consequence of global climate change, species distribution ranges are expected to be dramatically altered in the near future. Hence, the identification of drivers accounting for distribution range shifts has become a goal of paramount importance for better understanding the ecology and evolution. Nevertheless, there is much debate concerning whether geographic boundaries are driven by merely geographic and climatic characteristics and/or by biological and historical processes, such as dispersal, post-glacial re-colonization history and human activities. Arabidopsis thaliana represents a useful model system to assess the effects of these processes on distribution patterns, mostly due to the high-quality and quantity of genetic and genomic resources publicly available. Although previous studies provided insight into the climatic features where A. thaliana is expected to occur, the new tools and resources available, such as spatial distribution models, satellite image, and predicted vegetation layers, enable the use of more reliable distribution models including several biotic and abiotic factors as well as the historical dynamics of the species. This project aims to disentangle the differential role of drivers accounting for contractions and expansions at very different distribution edges as well as the forces governing the genetic structure of A. thaliana with particular attention to contact and overlapping zones among different genetic lineages. Furthermore, this PhD project will shed light on the understanding of the drivers and processes accounting for the distribution range of cosmopolitan organisms.

    • Resumen: 

      Movement ecology has been recently proposed as a new paradigm to encompass a broad range of scientific approaches and it is currently considered a unified framework to study the movement of organisms. Simultaneously, the study of animal movement has experienced a massive revolution due to the technological advances in tracking free-range animals such as miniaturization of devices, high temporal and spatial resolution and the development of new sensors. As a result, the long-term tracking of specific individuals has shown that individuals from the same population are not as ecologically equivalent as traditionally assumed, e.g. in terms of prey and habitat selection. To our knowledge, there have not been any attempts to study individual specialization from the perspective of movement ecology in raptors. The aim of this thesis is to assess how movement patterns differ between a specialist falcon, lesser kestrel (Falco naumanni), and a generalist one, common kestrel (Falco tinnunculus). At the same time, we would like to elucidate if individuals have some degree of specialization. We hypothesize that lesser kestrel specialism will be reflected in its movement ecology, conversely for common kestrel. Hence, lesser kestrel range of movement patterns will be narrower and individual differences will be smaller than those of common kestrel. In order to achieve these goals, individuals from the two species are being monitorized in areas where they breed in sympatry and information about energy expenditure, prey selection, habitat use and hunting strategy will be analysed.
