Carnivores, roads and plants: how unexpected relationships change ecosystems
Alberto Suarez-Esteban is a biologist by training and a passionate naturalist. He has studied a variety of topics and taxa (plants, birds, mammals), always with a focus on conservation and sustainability.
Ecosystems are very much like a car's engine: they have multiple components (species, for example) that are structured in a particular way and provide functions. When we humans build roads, we do not only affect certain species, but also the structure and the functions of the ecosystem. All these changes combined can lead to a much different landscape. Join Alberto Suarez-Esteban on a trip to southern Spain to unravel the unexpected consequences of roads in a Mediterranean ecosystem.
