Let’s go to Galápagos!

I am looking forward to spend a glorious time in Galápagos. I am going to participate in a research project for three months …

CDFOver the last 10 years, the Galápagos National Park Directorate has carried out manual and chemical control of the invasive blackberry in the Scalesia forests at Los Gemelos on Santa Cruz. It is possible that this management has changed the structure of the forests which is supposed to affect invertebrates and birds that live there. To analyse effects of the management on plants, invertebrates and birds, a multi-taxon monitoring has been established. My part in this project is to evaluate the efficacy of the blackberry control measures and the impacts on non-target invertebrate species.
