His talk links to his research titled, ‘Saving a species from extinction one boulder at a time: Advances in the conservation of the Mediterranean Ribbed Limpet Patella ferruginea Gmelin, 1781’. Gibraltar is a hotspot for this endangered species, hosting the largest number of individuals anywhere in the Iberian Peninsula.
As well as authoring several popular books, Dr Fa has published over 70 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters mainly on ecological and archaeological subjects, and has been principal investigator on a number of EU and EFCHED funded projects, several of which received international awards. His primary research areas are in marine species ecology and conservation, paleoecology, and human evolution and behaviour, especially the relationship between people and the sea in the past. He is a recognised expert on this protected species, having published extensively on this subject together with other local and international scientists over the years.
