Doñana’s Singular Scientific-Technical Infrastructure (ICTS-RBD) provides access and support to carry out research at the Doñana Protected Areas.

For that purpose, it provides researchers with housing, facilities, technical and logistic support. It also runs programs for monitoring the status and trends of biodiversity, provides online access to all the information gathered by these monitoring programs, and delivers IT services and tools to facilitate the search and use of that information.

Insecticides in wild bird eggs

Recent studies demonstrated that the common pyrethroid insecticides are present in aquatic biota tissues. In this study, 123 samples of unhatched eggs of 16 wild bird species collected from 2010 to 2012 in Doñana National and Natural Park were analysed to determine 13 pyrethroids.

The common water-clover in Doñana temporary ponds

The common water-clover in Doñana temporary ponds // El trébol de cuatro hojas peludo en las lagunas temporales de Doñana
This year, thanks to the winter rains (around 350 mm), temporary ponds were flooded in Doñana. During one of the visits to the ponds the Doñana monitoring team (ICTS-RBD-Doñana) identified the common water-clover (Marsilea strigosa), a rare aquatic fern that usually inhabits in ephemeral ponds with clear waters.

Population dynamics of the Iberian hare in Doñana

The Iberian hare (Lepus granatensis) is a widely distributed endemic species in the Iberian Peninsula. To improve knowledge of its population dynamics, the relative abundance and population trends of the Iberian hare were studied in the autumns of 1995–2012 in a protected area (Doñana National Park) by spotlighting in 2 different habitats: marshland and ecotones.

Spectacular number of waterbirds wintering in the Guadalquivir marshes

A mediados del pasado mes de enero el Equipo de Seguimiento de Procesos Naturales (ICTS-RBD) realizó el censo de aves invernantes en las Marismas del Guadalquivir (Espacio Natural Doñana, zonas no protegidas colindantes y Paraje Natural del Brazo de Este). Este censo se hace de forma simultánea en todo el Paleártico Occidental, de forma que podemos conocer las cantidades de aves presentes en los principales humedales de Europa, Norte de África y Próximo Oriente. Se tienen en cuenta todas...

Nest decoration as a communication signal

Avian nests are frequently concealed or camouflaged, but a number of species builds noticeable nests or use conspicuous materials for nest decoration. In territorial species decorations may serve as extended phenotypic signaling of nest-site occupancy and social status to potential intruders. The latter may benefit both signaler and receiver by minimizing the risk of aggressive interactions. Here, it was tested whether nest decorations increased nest-site visibility to conspecifics in black...
