    • Apex scavengers from different European populations converge at threatened savannah landscapes 

      Delgado González, A.; Cortés Avizanda, A.; Serrano, D.; Arrondo, E.; Duriez, O.; Margalida, A.; Carrete, M.; Oliva-Vidal, Pilar; Sourp, E.; Morales-Reyes, Zebensui; García-Barón, I.; Riva, M. (Nature Research, 2022)
      Over millennia, human intervention has transformed European habitats mainly through extensive livestock grazing. “Dehesas/Montados” are an Iberian savannah-like ecosystem dominated by oak-trees, bushes and grass species ...
    • Biases in the Detection of Intentionally Poisoned Animals: Public Health and Conservation Implications from a Field Experiment 

      Gil Sánchez, José María; Aguilera-Alcalá, Natividad; Moleón, Marcos; Sebastián-González, Esther; Margalida, Antoni; Morales-Reyes, Zebensui; Durà Alemañ, Carlos Javier; Oliva-Vidal, Pilar; Pérez-García, Juan M.; Sánchez-Zapata, José Antonio (MDPI, 2021-01-29)
      Intentional poisoning is a global wildlife problem and an overlooked risk factor for public health. Managing poisoning requires unbiased and high-quality data through wildlife monitoring protocols, which are largely lacking. ...
    • Cannibalistic necrophagy in red foxes: do the nutritional benefits offset the potential costs of disease transmission? 

      Oliva-Vidal, Pilar; Tobajas, Jorge; Margalida, Antoni (Springer Science and Business Media Deutschland GmbH, 2021)
      Cannibalism, or intraspecific predation, occurs when an individual consumes another individual of its own species; c.f. ‘cannibalistic/conspecific/intraspecific necrophagy’ when the individual consumes all or part of a ...
    • Functional traits driving species role in the structure of terrestrial vertebrate scavenger networks 

      Sebastián-González, Esther; Morales-Reyes, Zebensui; Botella, Francisco; Naves-Alegre, Lara; Pérez García, Juan Manuel; Mateo-Tomás, Patricia; Olea, Pedro P.; Moleón, Marcos; Barbosa, Jomar Magalhaes; Hiraldo, Fernando; Arrondo, Eneko; Donázar, Jose Antonio; Cortés Avizanda, Ainara; Selva, Núria; Lambertucci, Sergio A.; Bhattacharjee, Aishwarya; Brewer, Alexis L.; Abernethy, Erin F.; Turner, Kelsey L.; Beasley, James C.; DeVault, Travis L.; Gerke, Hannah C.; Rhodes, Oline E.; Ordiz, Andrés; Wikenros, Camilla; Zimmermann, Barbara; Wabakken, Peter; Wilmers, Christopher C.; Smith, Justine A.; Kendall, Corinne J.; Ogada, Darcy; Frehner, Ethan; Allen, Maximilian L.; Wittmer, Heiko U.; Butler, James R. A.; du Toit, Johan T.; Margalida, Antoni; Oliva-Vidal, Pilar; Wilson, David; Jerina, Klemen; Krofel, Miha; Kostecke, Rich; Inger, Richard; Per, Esra; Ayhan, Yunus; Sancı, Mehmet; Yılmazer, Ünsal; Inagaki, Akino; Koike, Shinsuke; Samson, Arockianathan; Perrig, Paula L.; Spencer, Emma E.; Newsome, Thomas M.; Heurich, Marco; Anadón, José D.; Buechley, Evan R.; Gutiérrez-Cánovas, Cayetano; Elbroch, Marck; Sánchez-Zapata, José Antonio (Ecological Society of America, 2021)
      Species assemblages often have a non-random nested organization, which in vertebrate scavenger (carrion-consuming) assemblages is thought to be driven by facilitation in competitive environments. However, not all scavenger ...
    • Modeling of Vaccination and Contact Tracing as Tools to Control the COVID-19 Outbreak in Spain 

      Colomer, M. Àngels (Maria Àngels); Margalida, Antoni; Alòs, Francesc; Oliva-Vidal, Pilar; Vilella, Anna; Fraile Sauce, Lorenzo José (MDPI, 2021)
      We developed an agent-based stochastic model, based on P Systems methodology, to decipher the effects of vaccination and contact tracing on the control of COVID-19 outbreak at population level under different control ...
    • Modelling the SARS-COV-2 outbreak: assessing the usefulness of protective measures to reduce the pandemic at population level 

      Colomer, M. Àngels (Maria Àngels); Margalida, Antoni; Alòs, Francesc; Oliva-Vidal, Pilar; Vilella, Anna; Fraile Sauce, Lorenzo José (Elsevier, 2021)
      A new bioinspired computational model was developed for the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic using the available epidemiological information, high-resolution population density data, travel patterns, and the average number of contacts ...
