Pedro Jordano - Curriculum Vitae#

Main research lines

Pedro Jordano's research focuses on the study of Biodiversity from both ecological and evolutionary perspectives. He is interested in how ecological interactions shape complex ecological systems. Such interactions, e.g., plants and their mutualistic seed dispersers and pollinators, are the wireframe of biodiversity, yet we are far from understanding how they evolve and coevolve. Over the years Prof. Jordano’s research lines have unfolded to cover many aspects, including botany, zoology, population genetics, statistics, and theoretical models.

Track record

He is author of more than 220 scientific papers and three books, with >28000 citations (h= 80). Supervised 23 Post-doctoral fellowships, 16 PhD theses (plus 3 ongoing), and 11 Master theses.

Since 2015, included in the list "Most cited Scientists- Ecology and Environment" (Essential Science Indicators, ISI), and has 12 papers included as "Highly cited publications".

He teaches within the PhD and graduate programs at Univ. Pablo de Olavide (director of the Master Course “Biodiversidad y Biología de la Conservación”) and Univ. Sevilla, Spain, teaching courses on evolution, plant-animal interactions and conservation genetics. Since 2019 he was appointed as Associate Professor at Univ. Sevilla, where he has been Honorary Professor since 2009. He is a co-organizer of the field course “Curso Ibero-Americano de Frugivoria e Dispersão de Sementes” that takes place each year in Brazil, with the collaboration of UNESP (Rio Claro), UNICAMP (Campinas) and CYTED-UNESCO. External professor within the Ciência sem Fronteiras Program (Brazil) for the Programa Pós-graduação em Biodiversidade e Ecologia, UNESP (Brazil).
