Dr. Mohamed Henriques


Dr. Mohamed Henriques obtained a master’s degree in conservation biology at the University of Coimbra and a PhD on the intertidal ecosystems of the Bijagós archipelago from the point of view of migratory shorebirds.

He has worked on the conservation and monitoring of birds, sea turtles and mangroves throughout Guinea-Bissau, in collaboration with the Institute of Biodiversity and Protected Areas (IBAP) and the ISPA University Institute in Lisbon.

Her work on the BirdEyes project focuses on studying the behaviour of birds in the face of global environmental change. In particular, his research on the Eurasian spoonbill reveals sex-specific diurnal rhythms in nesting and foraging, which helps us to understand how birds adapt to their habitats. Mohamed’s work provides valuable information on the impact of environmental change on bird ecology, contributing to conservation efforts worldwide.
