Biology and Conservation of Aquatic Organisms

This research line grew from an initial core of researchers dedicated to the study of fish behaviour, especially in littoral fish. The study of behaviour of littoral fish led the team to extend its activities to the study of fish ecology, larval biology, monitoring and conservation, biogeography, phylogeny, phylogeography and evolution; estuarine and freshwater fish were also integrated in our area of research.

A great emphasis was placed on monitoring fish communities and in collecting base line data on the temporal dynamics on fish assemblages, crucial information to investigate problems associated with global warming and to delineate strategies of conservation of aquatic organisms and habitats. In this respect, the study of fish was also integrated with other aquatic organisms, namely marine mammals and marine birds.
