It has been a great pleasure to do so and allowed me to apply scientific knowledge to concrete conservation problems, and to use this experience to improve scientific knowledge itself. BIOTA has proved to be a very valuable partner, with a competent and motivated team that has the necessary experience to tackle each challenge. Overall, it has been a pleasure to collaborate with BIOTA during all these years!”
