History

Our interests for Biogeography date from 1984, within a project for the study of small mammals in southern Iberia funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science. This line of research was strengthened by the inclusion of “Zoogeograhy” and “Animal Biodiversity and Conservation” as subjects in the Biological Sciences degree programme of the Universidad de Málaga. Our research group was officially constituted by the Department for Education and Science (Regional Government of Andalusia) in 1989. It was formerly named “Morphology, Systematic and Biogeography of Vertebrates“. Read more…
