Dr. José Herrera

My research focus on investigating patterns of species distribution and the functioning of networks of species interactions at multiple and differing temporal and spatial scales in the face of global environmental change.

My main aim is to shed light on how (and why) species distribute in geographical space and, from a conservation point of view, determine how (and why) organisms respond to different global change drivers. I also try to go beyond the effects on individual species distribution by investigating subsequent impacts on ecosystem processes mediated by interactions among species, and in turn, on ecosystem functioning.

Finally, as a landscape ecologist, I seek for establishing new approaches on how we research, manage and restore real-​world landscapes undergoing rapid and profound environmental changes.
