MARIO VELAMAZÁN. PhD
My thesis (defended in Feb 2019) focused on the ecology and management of semiarid Mediterranean systems dominated by Barbary Sheep (Ammotragus lervia). Barbary sheep are wild ungulates that were introduced in 1970 in Sierra Espuña, Murcia (Spain). I investigate the effects of Barbary sheep on threatened and widespread taxa as well as the effects of management practices (firebreaks, artificial supply points, silviculture) on the habitat use to ensure sustainable populations and natural regeneration.
