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.

Doñana Biological Station, belonging to Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), will improve energy efficiency and the e-labs of the ICTS-Doñana Biological Reserve (RBD) with European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) co-financing

Insecticides in wild bird eggs

Recent studies demonstrated that the common pyrethroid insecticides are present in aquatic biota tissues. In this study, 123 samples of unhatched eggs of 16 wild bird species collected from 2010 to 2012 in Doñana National and Natural Park were analysed to determine 13 pyrethroids.

The common water-clover in Doñana temporary ponds

The common water-clover in Doñana temporary ponds // El trébol de cuatro hojas peludo en las lagunas temporales de Doñana
This year, thanks to the winter rains (around 350 mm), temporary ponds were flooded in Doñana. During one of the visits to the ponds the Doñana monitoring team (ICTS-RBD-Doñana) identified the common water-clover (Marsilea strigosa), a rare aquatic fern that usually inhabits in ephemeral ponds with clear waters.

Population dynamics of the Iberian hare in Doñana

The Iberian hare (Lepus granatensis) is a widely distributed endemic species in the Iberian Peninsula. To improve knowledge of its population dynamics, the relative abundance and population trends of the Iberian hare were studied in the autumns of 1995–2012 in a protected area (Doñana National Park) by spotlighting in 2 different habitats: marshland and ecotones.
