His research focuses in the analysis of interaction between the biological conservation and the forestry and others land-uses at local and landscape scales. His activity focuses on the applied research and the transfer the results to the land management. The variability of the internal composition and structure of the habitat at stand scale is the main ecological factor that explains the richness, abundance and diversity of the faunal communities and populations of species. He was worked in the relations fauna and the changes of his habitats in the Mediterranean, Eurosiberan and Alpine ecosystems and landscapes, using birds and mammals as a bioindicators.

At the same time, he focuses the research from the point of view of the ecology and conservation of endangered species, as the capercaille, woodpeckers and forest bats in relation with the structural variables of the habitat (recovery of vegetation stratus and species, density and diametric distribution of the trees, volume and type of dead wood and availability of cavities in trees) in different management or natural perturbation scenarios.
