Experimental Design

FLAMMINGGOS uses paired field and laboratory studies to investigate the combined effects of waterbirds, macrophytes, invertebrates, and microbes on GHG flux in Mediterranean wetlands.

Our study investigates both top-down and bottom-up effects of waterbirds that may modify wetland greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As one of the largest remaining networks of wetlands in Europe, Doñana National Park provides critical habitat to an abundant and diverse array of waterbirds, and is a potential sink for CO2.

Sediment cores are collected in the field and brought back to the lab for analysis.
