Doñana’s Singular Scientific-Technical Infrastructure (ICTS-RBD) provides access and support to carry out research at the Doñana Protected Areas.

For such purpose, it provides researchers with accomodation, various facilities and technical/logistical support. It also runs monitoring programs to assess the status and trends of biodiversity, provides online access to all the information gathered by these monitoring programs and delivers ICT service management and tools to facilitate the search and use of that information.


Is restocking a useful tool for increasing rabbit densities?

The Population of European rabbit Oryctolagus cuniculus have declined due to several factors including habitat transformation and viral diseases. At the same time, corrective measures including population restocking in areas with low population densities using rabbits from other geographical areas have been performed. As part of the natural processes monitoring program carried out in the Doñana Biological Station (ESPN-EBD-CSIC), rabbit censuses were conducted

Erradication of invasive plants from RBD-ICTS.

In March, volunteers from Adena / WWF have offered us their invaluable help to eliminate the invasive plant Oxalis pes-caprae, native from South Africa, from several sites of the Biological Reserve of Doñana (RBD-ICTS). This plant is included in the Spanish catalog of invasive species
