Dr Salvador Herrando-Perez
  • Biography/ Background


    I am a quantitative ecologist with a general interest in how environmental variation shapes biodiversity. I have strong expertise in R programming, multivariate ordination and multi-model inference, and collation and curation of biodiversity datasets. I have published 30 peer-reviewed papers and more than 100 popular-science articles, lectured 15 postgraduate courses on multivariate statistics and described 4 species new to science. I hold a BSc in Biology/Zoology (1986-1991), a MPhil in marine ecology (1992-1996), a PhD in demography (2007-2012) and have completed two postdocs in ecophysiology (2013-2015) and palaeoecology (2018-2020).

    I am now working on amphibian bioprospection using environmental DNA with the Spanish Research Council (2021), and leading a theme section on the effects of global changes on biodiversity in a Spanish magazine.
