About Us


The Salgo Team is composed by an interdisciplinary group of ecologists and evolutionary biologists led by Assoc Prof Rob Salguero-Gómez working on the following areas:

  • Drivers of life history strategies
  • The evolution of and escape from senescence
  • Functional trait demography
  • Species distributions and habitat suitability
  • Life history oddities and gaps of knowledge
  • Conservation biology and population forecast
  • Comparative demography
  • Population modelling

Our group’s ultimate goal is to promote an integrative academic research programme integrating genetics, metabolomics, biochemical, anatomic, and ecophysiological approaches to examine demographic aspects of an organism’ life cycle. We do so by combining field experimental manipulations, ecological modelling, and comparative analyses.
