Research interests: I use the information contained in the molecule of DNA in an inter-disciplinary and creative context to investigate problems related to the floras from Macaronesia and other insular enclaves, and to integrate our results in multi-disciplinary approaches to biodiversity management and conservation.

Research interests: I use molecular tools (DNA sequencing, ISSRs and microsatellites) to better understand the origins, evolution taxonomy, biogeography, diversification and conservation of island plants from mainly, but not only, the Canary Islands. Some of the focal groups that I have been or I am doing research on are Matthiola and Parolinia (Brassicaceae), Dracaena (Dracaenaceae), Minuartia (Caryophyllaceae), Heberdenia and Myrsine (Myrsinacae), or Echium (Boraginaceae). For the past few years, I have been involved in several projects to explore and develop the potential of DNA barcoding as a practical tool to complement morphology in the species-level identification of the Canarian flora.

Research interests: Carlos´research is focused on the microevolutionary processes and mechanisms that shape molecular and phenotypic variation in plant species. He is especially interested in oceanic islands, in which some evolutionary processes are more evident and easier to address than in mainland areas. His most recent research deals with Olea (Oleaceae) and Prunus (Rosaceae) in the Canary Islands, and Dubautia (Asteraceae) in the Hawaiian Islands.

Research interests: I have a strong personal interest in the population genetics, systematics, and evolution of the endangered endemic canarian flora, with a focus on its conservation. In this sense, I have worked with more than fourty taxa in order to resolve taxonomic doubts, research in conservation genetics, population genetics studies, and molecular characterization.
