My main research interest is to investigate the co-phylogenetic patterns between Parapharyngodon spp. and the three different host genera – Gallotia spp., Chalcides spp. and Tarentola spp. – in the Canary Islands. My work pretend to clarify the current genus taxonomy and genetic diversity, infer specific patterns of speciation and colonization of the Canary Islands and assess cospeciation events, with the ultimate goal of inferring how the species evolved together.
