The complex process of their decline is examined from an interdisciplinary perspective, thanks to the establishment of dialogue between scientific experts and local populations.

temperatures in spring, in order to determine how adaptation contributes to the ongoing survival of a species. The project is based on the long-term study of Eurasian blue tits and great tits in Europe.
CORESCAM, LED BY THE SPANISH NATIONAL MUSEUM
of Natural Sciences, assesses the vulnerability and resilience of coastal ecosystems (coastlines and marine reefs) in view of the increased frequency and intensity of hurricanes and droughts in Central America. The study of these extreme weather phe- nomena caused by climate change, will be promoted through awareness-raising initiatives via a digital platform.
