Grants for research teams

Ecology and Conservation Biology


The project’s mission is twofold. Firstly, to learn more about the importance of food availability and vegetation structure in the generation of quality habitats and its dependence on extensive grazing, through traditional grazing and the use of remote sensing (drones). Secondly, to get local communities involved in the conservation of the Dupont’s lark by means of public participation.
