Exploring bat populations trends in Southern Europe | Elena Tena López, Doñana Biological Station

Elena Tena López, post-doc at the Doñana Biological Station, CSIC, is currently involved in the SUMHAL project with the bat lab group, her line of research being in particular focused on an endangered species of bat, called the greater noctule. The greater noctule is the largest bat in Europe, its most important populations are located in Southern Europe and converge in a geographical triangle of 136,000 hectares: María Luisa Park (Seville), Doñana Biological Reserve- CSIC (Huelva) and Zoobotanical Garden of Jerez (Cádiz). “LifeWatch ERIC has improved a lot the research of biodiversity”, she says, “as it has really powerful tools, providing resources, e-science infrastructure and facilities that can help us – as researchers – to know more about different species and find solutions to preserve nature.” Watch the video and find out more!
