Equipo SOS Anfibios Guadarrama

El equipo del proyecto financiado por el Organismo Autónomo Parques Nacionales está formado por dos investigadores del MNCN-CSIC, mientras que el equipo del proyecto SOSanfibios.org está integrado por dos biólogos y dos veterinarios.

Nuestro equipo de investigación lleva trabajando en la problemática de las enfermedades de anfibios desde 1999, cuando descubrimos el primer caso de quitridiomicosis en España, concretamente en el Macizo de Peñalara del Parque Nacional Sierra de Guadarrama. Algunas de las contribuciones científicas del equipo aparecen al final de esta página.

Asesor en la gestión de poblaciones de anfibios de varios espacios naturales protegidos, ha diseñado diversos programas de seguimiento y dirige el Centro de Cría en Cautividad de Anfibios Amenazados de la Sierra de Guadarrama.

Dr. Luis María Carrascal de la Puente

Profesor de investigación del CSIC en el Departamento de Ecología Evolutiva del Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales. Doctor en Biología por la Universidad Complutense de Madrid.  Desde hace 30 años sus intereses científicos se han centrado en el análisis de los patrones de distribución-abundancia de vertebrados terrestres, considerando aspectos de su auto-ecología como la búsqueda de alimento, riesgo de depredación, preferencias de hábitat, interacción con el estado térmico del ambiente y sus repercusiones sobre la condición física y salud de los individuos.

Dr. Lucía Arregui Almendral

Lucia Arregui es doctora en biología por la UAM. Su interés en investigación se centra en la biología de la reproducción y los factores que la modulan. Durante sus primeros años trabajó con mamíferos (ungulados y felinos) y desde 2011 su línea se ha centrado en los anfibios. Actualmente desarrolla técnicas de reproducción asistida en anuros y urodelos con el objetivo de utilizarlas para la conservación de este grupo tan amenazado y para aumentar el conocimiento sobre la biología de la reproducción de esta clase principalmente en relación a los factores que afectan a la calidad espermática y la regulación de la espermatogénesis.
