Capdevila, Pol
My research aims to better understand the resilience of species to global change in order to develop effective management and conservation tools. To do this, I combine the use of small-scale experiments, field data, large-scale data, along with a wide variety of modeling techniques, to better understand, predict and manage their dynamics and promote their resilience.

Her research interests focus on the interaction between the physiological response of plants in relation to their environment, demographic responses and the distribution of species. Currently postdoctoral researcher Margarita Salas in the SalGo Team, combines experimental approaches together with ecological modeling to examine the processes of biological invasion through the prediction of the distribution of invasive species under different environmental scenarios (climate change).-Bosch

I am an evolutionary biologist interested in understanding the ecological processes that produce and modulate phenotypic and species diversity. I study these processes in four general realms: (1) the evolution in insular systems, (2) the causes of global radiations, (3) the adaptation to climate and climate change and (4) the evolutionary consequences of innovations. I approach my research from a broad perspective, working at the interface between molecular phylogenetics, functional morphology, GIS analyses and statistical modeling.

PhD in biology specializing in ethnobotany. My research focuses on the inventory and conservation of traditional knowledge related to biodiversity with the aim of preserving this heritage and forming the basis for future research to obtain new medicines, food and other products related to human well-being. Currently, as part of the Margarita Salas grant, I am doing a postdoctoral fellowship at Emory University (Atlanta, USA), in order to train in phytochemistry and microbiology and thus associate the medicinal uses of the plants mentioned in the ethnobotany in the Catalan language with its active compounds and test its activity.

Our main research interests are understanding the mechanisms underlying molecular adaptation. We combine theoretical, analytical and experimental approaches, some of them developed in our group, to determine the relative role of the principal evolutionary forces in driving species diversification and in promoting genetic innovations. For that, we analyze both DNA sequence data generated in our lab (NGS data) and genomic data retrieved from databases, always within the framework of comparative and population genomics / transcriptomics. An important part of our work is focused on the origin and evolution of multigene families involved in the chemosensory system of invertebrates. We also actively develop and / or maintain software for the analysis of genetic and genomic variation in different contexts.
