Herrando Pérez Salvador


I am a quantitative ecologist interested in the curation and analysis of biodiversity data. In terms of study taxa, habitat or ecological discipline, I am definitely a generalist.

I am proficient in R programming, multivariate ordination and compilation of biological databases. I have published 31 peer-reviewed papers, lectured 15 postgraduate courses on multivariate statistics and described 4 species new to science. I hold BSc in Biology/Zoology (1991), MPhil in marine ecology (1992-1996), PhD in population dynamics (2007-2012), and have completed two postdocs in ecophysiology (2013-2015), palaeoecology (2018-2020) and ecological monitoring (2021).  Throughout, I have experienced 12 years of career interruptions mostly due to parenting responsabilities.

I write popular science on biodiversity and global change since 2011, resulting in more than 100 printed articles and blogs.
