Research Program

My research focuses on understanding the patterns and processes of macroevolution using the fossil record. I am interested in the origin and diversification of new groups of organisms, particularly major vertebrate radiations such as birds, duck-billed and horned dinosaurs. Areas of research include the following:

  • The origin of novel characters and how these relate to the raise and diversification of ‘successful’ clades of organisms
  • Characterization of the tempo and modalities (e.g. early fast vs. slower but sustained expansion) of clade diversification through deep time
  • How factors extrinsic to the biology of organisms (such as geological events) influence the evolution and geographical distribution of vertebrate faunas
  • How morphological anatomical variation relates to taxonomic diversity and life history

These questions are approached by integrating comparative anatomy (including traditional character analysis and the quantification of shape variation through geometric morphometrics), phylogenetic inference and systematics, quantitative historical biogeography, and macroevolutionary analysis of biodiversity patterns through time. I use dinosaurs as a research model because of their long (160 million year) temporal range, widespread geographical distribution, high diversity, and the possession of unique anatomical structures.

 

Teaching

Albert has served as instructor for a variety of courses, including various macroevolutionary subjects at the Master’s level (University of Bristol, Bristol, UK) and Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy and Histology to senior undergraduate students (Florida State University, Tallahassee, USA)

 

Fieldwork

The search and excavation of vertebrate fossils, mostly non-avian dinosaurs, has taken Albert to conduct fieldwork in Mesozoic strata from Europe, North and South America. He has conducted fieldwork in the Lower Cretaceous lake deposits with dinosaur footprints of La Rioja (Spain), the lithographic limestones of Barremian (Lower Cretaceous) age in Lleida province (Spain), the late Maastrichtian strata of the south-central Pyrenean Basin in Spain, the Campano-Maastrichtian beds of the Allen Formation in Patagonia (Río Negro province, Argentina), the Judith River Formation near Malta (Montana, USA), the late Maastrichtian deposits of the Hell Creek Formation (eastern Montana, USA), and the Early Cretaceous exposures of the Yucca Formation in the Quitman Mountains (Hudspeth County, southwestern Texas, USA).

Preparadora

Júlia Jiskoot Busquets (Barcelona, 1994)

Graduada en Conservació i Restauració de Béns Culturals a la Universitat de Barcelona l’any 2016. Un cop finalitzada la carrera va realitzar diversos cursos i voluntariats relacionats en el camp de la Conservació i la Restauració. Un d’ells va ser a l’Institut Català de Paleontologia a l’àrea de Conservació i Preparació on des de fa poc hi treballa.

Actualment està treballant amb fòssils del jaciment de Vallparadís (Terrassa).

Evolutionary Paleobiology

During my undergraduate studies in Biology in the University of Salamanca (Spain) I decided to start my research trajectory focused on ecology and biodiversity conservation. During those days, I had the opportunity to communicate new records of Mediterranean tree frog (Hyla meridionalis) outside its known range; records that I directly found in the companion of colleagues and which we published in my first research paper (Balmori et al. 2015). My final research project was focused on Cambrian explosion and its evolutionary repercussions. After my graduation, I enrolled the master of biodiversity in the University of Barcelona (Spain) during which I performed a research project on metapopulation dynamics of invasive alien species (American mink as study system) for my master thesis. This work will be submitted for its publication in scientific indexed journals (Calderón et al. in prep.). Nowadays, I am working in a doctoral project in the Institut Català de Paleontologia (Autonomous University of Barcelona). The thesis is focused on the evolution of mammal life history in Miocene Iberian ecosystems.

Paleobiologia Evolutiva

Durant els meus estudis en biologia a la Universitat de Salamanca, vaig decidir enfocar la meva trajectòria científica cap al camp de l'ecologia i la conservació de la biodiversitat. En aquest temps, vaig tenir l'oportunitat de comunicar nous registres de reineta meridional (Hyla meridionalis) fora de la seva distribució coneguda, aquestes dades van ser publicats en el meu primer article (Balmori et al. 2015). Vaig realitzar el projecte de final de carrera sobre l'explosió cambriana i les seves repercussions evolutives. Posteriorment vaig realitzar el màster en Biodiversitat a la Universitat de Barcelona (Espanya), en el qual vaig dur a terme un treball d'investigació sobre dinàmica metapoblacional d'espècies invasores (usant el visó americà com a cas d'estudi). Aquest projecte està sent preparat per a la posterior publicació (Calderón et al. In prep.). Actualment estic treballant en el meu projecte de doctorat a l'Institut Català de Paleontologia (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona). El tema principal de la tesi tracta sobre l'evolució del cicle vital dels mamífers en ecosistemes ibèrics continentals del Miocè.

Faunes del Neogen i Quaternari

Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona), 1992

És graduada en Biologia, menció de biodiversitat, per la Universitat de Barcelona(UB). Des del 2012 ha col·laborat com a voluntària a l’Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont realitzant principalment tasques de triatge i anar a excavacions al camp. Alhora de fer el Treball de final de Grau, va seguir dins de l’ICP on va desenvolupar un estudi sobre Les Cases de la Valenciana, un dels jaciment del Miocè inferior del Vallès-Penedès de la mà del Dr. Isaac Casanovas Vilar. Posteriorment, va realitzar el màster de Biodiversitat també a la UB i va realitzar el treball de final de màster sobre els micromamífers rosegadors que es troben al jaciment de les Cases de la Valenciana. Actualment fa la tesi doctoral a l’ICP, al Grup de Recerca de Faunes del Neogen i Quaternari amb una beca FI. La seva investigació se centra en els rosegadors fòssils de la conca del Vallès-Penedès durant el Miocè inferior.

Stress affected the reproduction of the last European titanosaurs

Stress affected the reproduction of the last European titanosaurs
