DOMIPEX TEAM 4) Núria and Pablo


We are Núria & Pablo, DOMIPEX team 4. We are doing our thesis in fluvial ecology at the Departament d'Ecologia of the Universitat de Barcelona (the same as Ada and Núria! Yes, we are department-mates!).

Núria’s PhD is about the relationship between emerging pollutants and invertebrate community and functioning in Iberian basins (Llobregat, Ebro, Júcar and Guadalquivir). Her PhD is part of the SCARCE project (“Assessing and predicting effects on water quantity and quality in Iberian rivers caused by global change”). She has also worked in a non-polluted stream, studying the leaf litter breakdown process, analyzing the changes in leaf litter stoichiometry and invertebrate dynamics during the process.
If you want to know more about the SCARCE project, check out here:

Pablo’s thesis focuses on wildfire long-term effects in streams, mainly about top-down effects of an endangered fish (Barbus merdionalis) that was locally extinct due to a wildfire. He works on macroinvertebrate ecology in Mediterranean streams, stream food webs, wildfire effects on freshwater ecosystems and biodiversity-ecosystem functions relationships. Take a look at his research group webpage!

Thanks Ada & Núria for letting us participate in DOMIPEX project!!!
