Title: Coastal Biodiversity Resilience to Increasing Extreme Events in the Caribbean Principal Investigators: Dr. Miguel Araujo CSIC-MNCN Dr. Ana Rey CSIC-MNCN Dr. Rosa Maria Roman-Cuesta, CIFOR 1. Background Central America (CA) (Mesoamerica + Caribbean) has faced increased exposure to damaging climate extreme events. This region has long been dubbed the miner’s canary of climate
CLIMATE change is the greatest threat humanity faces – and we aren’t the only ones at risk. Global warming will harm millions of other species, including iconic endangered animals such as polar bears and tigers. Despite this, conservationists often don’t take climate change into account, meaning plans to preserve these species are doomed to fail. “It’s astonishing,” says Miguel Araujo at the
We are looking for an administrative project manager to a PARIBAS-funded international project: COastal biodiversity RESilience to increasing extreme events in Central AMerica (CORESCAM): implications for regional conservation and policy making Principal Investigators: Dr. Ana Rey CSIC-MNCN, Dr. Miguel B. Araújo CSIC-MNCN, Dr. Rosa Maria Roman-Cuesta, CIFOR 1. PROJECT DESCRIPTION A
Miguel Araújo is participating in a round the table discussion at the NOVA University of Lisbon's School of Business and Economics to talk about EU's new Green Deal. Registrations here.
My recent interview to the magazine Lisboa (page 54, sorry in Portuguese alone) where I talk about broad issues of sustainability, biogeography, climate change, economics, and how these issues are linked together through the concept of metabolism.
2 years postdoc position in the context of the PredWeb (Predicting Food-Web Biogeography). Project, funded through the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities. Background: Biogeography examines distributions of species and communities at broad geographical scales of extent and it is often assumed that interactions among species are second-order effects, with the relationship

Proud to have been identified for the 6th year in a row as highly cited in the field of environmental sciences. More on the 2019 awardees here. In total, 24 researchers at he CSIC we listed in 2019.
Community trophic structure typical of seasonal tropical climates https://youtu.be/1WwGVnNFJOY In Spanish here Climate determines the arquitectures of trophic structures and human activities simplify them. This is the main conclusion of a study published today in Nature Communications, by Manuel Mendoza and Miguel B. Araújo. Using the geographic distributions and feeding
