Brief description of research lines
I have focused my research on the analysis of the physiological mechanisms that determine the distribution pattern and feeding behavior in vertebrates. The studies have been focused on intra and inter specific differences as well as ontogenetic and seasonal changes. Studies have included birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. I have focused my studies on the causal relationships between physiological plasticity and ecological flexibility using osmoregulatory and digestive physiology as potential physiological constraints. To address these problems, in the laboratory we use various tools, from stable isotope analysis (e.g., δ 13C, δ 15N), up to determination of biochemical capacities (e.g., digestive and metabolic enzymes), systemic (e.g., renal function) and organismic (e.g., energy metabolism).
