Carnivore Conservation Ecology

Francisco Petrucci Fonseca

Assistant Professor

I received a Ph.D. in Biosystematics and Ecology and Systematics from the University of Lisbon in 1990. I am a professor of Ecology at the University of Lisbon. My research focuses on wolf ecology and conservation. ​My research goals are to contribute to Iberian wolf conservation. Being so, the relation between scientific research and environmental education is deeply aimed. Animal ecology, mainly predator prey relationship (wolf/domestic and wild prey); road impact on habitat fragmentation and wolf mortality; wolf population demography and dynamics; molecular genetics as a non-invasive method in mammal ecology studies; GIS analyzes concerning habitat suitability (wolf/deer); practical conservation measures concerning flock protection against predators through the recovery of old protection techniques and research in new ones; the study of the relation between man and wolf; and the development of environmental education programs, are subjects of particular interest.
