Marta I Sánchez
I’m a Ramón y Cajal Researcher at the Doñana Biological Station (Spanish Council of Scientific Research, CSIC), Seville, Spain. Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center of Functional Ecology and Evolution (CEFE-CNRS) and the Institute for Research and Development (IRD), Montpellier, France. My research focuses on understanding the processes regulating aquatic ecosystem functioning. In particular I’m interested in the complex influence of waterbirds on wetland ecosystems via predation and dispersal of propagules, the role of trophically transmitted parasites (mainly those manipulating host behaviour) and biological invasions.
