Grants for research teams

Ecology and Conservation Biology


The Balearic shearwater (Puffinus mauretanicus) is a marine bird endemic to the Balearic Islands and the most endangered in Europe, at a critical risk of extinction. The genome of the Balearic shearwater will be sequenced on this project, and a study will be conducted to report on the conservation actions.
