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

La Caixa Foundation is funding a number of PhD projects in a variety of domains. I am offering one such projects for a highly motivated student in conservation biology. The project title is "Global biodiversity conservation under climate and land use change" and can be found in the link below. I look forward to receiving good applications from committed students. The projects can be searched in
Happy to have accepted the challenge by Ricardo Garcia to co-organise this workshop for journalists. It is important that journalists acquire the competencies to communicate complex issues, like climate change, with objectivity. Thrilled that the idea was well received by EEA Grants Portugal. It will take place in February 2020 and be opened to journalists based in Portugal and Norway. The
