Nuria Cid



Adjunct lecturer
Brief description:

Núria Cid Puey (PhD) is a freshwater ecologist at the Department of Ecology, University of Barcelona (UB). She is a member of the FEM (Freshwater Ecology and Management) research group. Her work has been mainly focused on the ecological assessment of the main human pressures received by aquatic ecosystems, such as pollution, hydrological alterations and the introduction of alien species. Recently she participated in the EU-funded projects Refresh and BioFresh and was mainly involved in studies for informing policy on freshwater biodiversity conservation and restoration planning for setting priorities in the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive and Habitats Directive. She is currently working of the TRivers project, dedicated to the improvement of temporary river management in the Mediterranean Basin. She is member of the Global Freshwater Biodiversity Atlas editorial board.
