Rita T. Torres, biologist and researcher at the University of Aveiro, uses space ecology to understand how species respond to global changes and their dynamics at ecosystem level. She is particularly interested in the biology of reintroductions and how they can be used as tools for restoring ecosystem functions and processes. In recent years, she has been trying to understand the role of wild ungulates as role models for unraveling the main challenges of infectious diseases.
