The research of this lab focuses on the application of reptile and amphibian phylogenies to understand how biodiversity is generated and maintained. There is also a focus on inferring the biogeographical and evolutionary patterns of the groups studied, to revise their taxonomy and conserve them. Although the research carried out by this lab include the study of many different reptile and amphibian groups, its main interest is the faunas of the Mediterranean Basin and Arabia, including some oceanic and continental islands, such as the Canary and Cape Verde islands and the Socotra Archipelago.
