Population Ecology Group, Department of Biodiversity and Conservation, IMEDEA CSIC UIB, Esporles, Spain
PLoS ONE 5:e9774. 2010..This article provides a reliable example of how natural selection may operate in the wild and proves that predators mainly prey on substandard individuals...

PLoS ONE 8:e70711. 2013..Given our results we recommend gathering more data before concluded whether these taxa should be treated as two species or subspecies. ..

- Genetic and phenotypic differentiation between the critically endangered Balearic shearwater and neighboring colonies of its sibling speciesMeritxell Genovart
Population Ecology Group, Institut Mediterrani d Estudis Avançats IMEDEA CSIC UIB, Miquel Marque s 21, 07190 Esporles, Mallorca, Spain
J Hered 103:330-41. 2012..We suggest that these 2 young shearwater species could have been involved in processes of divergence and admixing. However, due to the longer coalescence times in nuclear markers, incomplete lineage sorting cannot be ruled out...

- Determinants of extinction-colonization dynamics in Mediterranean butterflies: the role of landscape, climate and local habitat featuresAlbert Fernández-Chacón
Population Ecology Group, Institut Mediterrani d Estudis Avançats CSIC UIB, Miquel Marques 21, Esporles, 07190, Spain
J Anim Ecol 83:276-85. 2014..Our models predicted higher sensitivity of the butterfly assemblages to deterministic changes in habitat features rather than to stochastic weather patterns, with some relationships being clearly dependent on the species' traits. ..

Population Ecology Group, IMEDEA CSIC UIB, Esporles, 07190, Spain
Ecol Lett 16:1501-14. 2013..Comparison of subsidised and non-subsidised ecosystems can help predict changes in diversity and the related ecosystem services that have suffered the impact of other global change agents. ..
