Luis M. Carrascal is a research professor whose scientific interests are focused on the causal explanations of habitat and elevational patterns in species, and the interspecific variation in position and breadth of organisms within thermal gradients.

Ecological impacts of artificial night lighting

Influence of environmental variables on the transmission of parasitic diseases.

I’m interested in how species deal with challenging situations such as stressful conditions, for example due to temperature or humidity, exposure to new pathogens or colonization of new environments.

Behavioural ecology of birds and reptiles

Grupo de Investigación en Ecología y Conservación de Aves

Using field and molecular techniques to understand the evolutionary processes that generate and maintain biodiversity.

Investigating the role of song in speciation processes of island birds. Interested in evolution, speciation, adaptation and animal communication.

Population dynamics, ecotoxicology and conservation of birds
