PROFESSIONAL DATA

Degree Dr.
Research Area(s) Biological Oceanography, Marine Ecology , Biological Oceanography, Marine Ecology
Research Activities My work plan proposes to study the requirements and feeding habitat selection of coastal seabirds with different trophic requirements and feeding strategies during the breeding season. Thus, the main objective of my research aims to study usage patterns and selection of feeding areas, assessing the physical, chemical and biological variables, including food characteristics (distribution, abundance, availability, quality) as potential factors determinants of this selection. Actually, my work focuses on the marine coast of Patagonia, Argentina. This information has great importance for seabird species conservation, and to work in management plans for Marine Natural Areas, promoting conservation tools.

Mi plan de trabajo propone estudiar los requisitos y selección de hábitat de alimentación de aves marinas costeras con diferentes requerimientos tróficos y estrategias de alimentación, durante la época de cría. Por lo tanto, el principal objetivo de mi investigación es estudiar los patrones de uso y la selección de las áreas de alimentación, y evaluar las variables físicas, químicas y biológicas, incluyendo las características del alimento (distribución, abundancia, disponibilidad, calidad) como factores determinantes potenciales de esta selección. Actualmente, mi trabajo se centra en el litoral marítimo de la Patagonia, Argentina. Esta información tiene gran importancia para la conservación de especies de aves marinas, y para trabajar en planes de manejo de Áreas Naturales Marinas, promoviendo herramientas de conservación.
