Tropical and Mediterranean Biodiversity (TMB) aims to contribute to the preservation of Biodiversity by unveiling natural and anthropogenic determinants of the distribution and conservation status of species and ecosystems. We work in natural and semi-natural ecosystems in Mediterranean (Southern Iberia), semi-tropical (Madeira) and tropical (Africa and South America) regions. Our studies involve a broad variety of taxonomic groups such as birds, bats, marine turtles and arthropods.
