João E. Rabaça

Head of LabOr, Associate Professor

I graduated in Biology (Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon) and hold a PhD and Habilitation in Biology from the University of Évora.
I have a position of Associate Professor at the Department of Biology and currently I’m the Director of this unit. I lead the LabOr and have broad interests in avian ecology, chiefly in understanding the composition and structure of riparian and forest bird communities, the effect of changes in farming systems on the distribution and abundances of priority species, the biology and ecology of owls and methodological issues of census techniques. Additionally, I have a special awareness in the spread out of scientific knowledge using birds as a reference tool.
