Luís Gomes

Degree in Biology from the University of Évora (2002), Master in Conservation Biology from the University of Évora (2005) and PhD in Biology from the University of Évora (2013). I developed research in ecology, ethology, eco-ethology, road ecology and conservation biology with a focus on different taxonomic groups. My area of expertise is eco-ethology of vertebrates related to intraspecific communication. Currently my main research interests include the study of deterministic factors of eco-ethology of several species of vertebrates, modeling and macroecological analysis of distribution patterns of vertebrate species, the impact of anthropomorphic activities on the distribution of species, study the patterns of biodiversity, and biodiversity conservation.

    I graduated in Biology (University of Aveiro) and hold a Master degree in Conservation Biology from the University of Évora. At this time I collaborate with LabOr in the work of community management of forest birds developed in the area of Companhia das Lezírias, and in the study of the effect of grazing on forest birds in oak stands in the Alentejo, in the context of the Montado as HNV.

    I am interested in nature conservation related areas, particularly in the study of bird communities associated with forests, methods of census and monitoring of bird populations.

      I have a degree in Biology (University of Évora, 2004), a Post-graduate in Conservation Biology (University of Évora, 2005). I work in ecology of riparian birds community as bioindicators of the system conservation status.

      My main research interests are: Birds as bioindicators of riparian galleries conservation status; Birds as seed dispersers; the impact of exotic vegetation proliferation in riparian galleries. Currently, I am a Doctoral researcher in the University of Coimbra, collaborating with LabOr and School of Biosciences of Cardiff University (Wales – UK).
