Her interests took her to develop cooperation projects to India, Dominican Republic, Patagonia, Peru and Costa Rica. She has participated in national and international studies on animal behaviour, bothany and ornithology on subjects as identification, population ecology and conservation. Is remarkable her participation on studies on the rol of interspecific communication in mixed flocks of passerines in the Peruvian forest with Florida University. It was on Llobregat Delta where her passion on birds became a way of life, which is making her and all that know her to vibrate, with a list of lifers which is non-stop growing!
