“La nacra més amaneçada que mai” UVic talk
Patricia Prado participated this April in the 15th edition of “Tertúlies de Literatura Científica” at the Science and Technology faculty in the University of Vic. The researcher presented the new LIFE European project focusing on the recovery of the fan mussel (Pinna nobilis) in the Mediterranean Sea and talked about the new research about how P. nobilis individuals in sub-optimal environments are more tolerant to disease but more vulnerable to severe weather phenomena.
The event had a total of 203 participants, where attendance varied from students (local high school and Biology, Biotechnology and Advertising and Public Relations degree), from PDI and PAS of the UVIC-UCC and some public in general.
