Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
Research interests - Stream Ecology Streams are complex ecosystems, highly diverse, and valuable for humans. Even so, our understanding of tropical streams is rather limited. With this in mind, my research is focused on the ecology of tropical rivers, with emphasis on stream ecology and aquatic insect taxonomy, and the effects that humans are having on them.
Our research laboratory is dedicated to the study of tropical stream ecosystems - we focus on understanding factors controlling ecosystem processes, the role that biota play in those processes, and the relation between biodiversity and ecosystem function. At the same time, we consider critical to advance the taxonomy and our knowledge of the biodiversity inhabiting tropical streams.
