Antonio Flores-Moya


Antonio Flores Moya (born 1964), Full Professor of Botany at the Department of
Plant Biology (Universidad de Málaga, Spain) from 2008, where he has been teaching, with different positions, since 1993. Bachelor Degree in Biology (1987) and PhD in Biological Sciences (1993) by the University of Malaga. My PhD thesis focused on deep-water seaweed populations at the Strait of Gibraltar and, later, I continued working on ecophysiology and taxonomy of seaweeds. In 2002, I started a new research line focused on experimental evolution of photosynthetic microorganisms. I has made stays in several institutions from France (Laboratoire Arago, Université Paris VI), Sweden (Upssala Universitet), England (Robert Hill Institute, University of Sheffield), Germany (Alfred Wegener Institute für Polar und Meeresforschung), Japan (Kobe University Research Center for Inland Seas) and Australia (Australian Institute for Marine Science), and two expeditions to Antarctica.

Full Professor in Botany

Universidad de Málaga
June 1990
Plant Biology (Botany)
Teaching activity: Botany (Bachelor Degree in Envirnmental Sciences), Botany I and Botany II (Bachelor Degree in Biology), Evolutionary Theory, Plant Evolution and Experimental Evolution (Master Degree in Evolutionary Biology). Research activity: My present research line is focused on the adaptation of cyanobacteria and microalgae to sudden environmental changes as well as to extreme natural environments. For this aim, I am studying if the adaptive mechanisms allowing the survival of phytoplankton to extreme conditions could be explained as an acclimation process or, alternatively, by the selection of genetic variants. As second interest, I continue with the study of biodiversity of seaweeds inhabiting Andalusia (S. Spain) shores. At the preset, Dean of the Faculty of Science from the Universidad de Málaga from June 2016.
