Biodiversity is the variety of organisms in a particular area at a given time, the genetic variability within a species, and the variety of habitats or ecosystems in which they live, including the complex ecological relationships between species. Throughout history, human beings have altered their environment, which has become the main cause of loss of biodiversity, one of the major current environmental problems at the global level. Knowing the components of biodiversity and their functions in ecosystems, identifying those that indicate the state of ecosystems and the environment, and monitoring their evolution over time as indicators of environmental changes is of great importance to establish the most appropriate conservation measures and policies.

For these reasons, we work on the development of biodiversity indicators in the framework of ecological processes and the realization of long-term biodiversity monitoring to obtain useful information for the management of natural areas and the sustainable exploitation of renewable resources in forestry and agriculture.
