The Barcelona Zoo Foundations concedes a grant to study trophic interactions of the Purple Gallinule with ricefields using stable isotopes.


The study “Trophic interactions of the Purple Gallinule (Porphyrio porphyrio) with rice cultivations in the Ebro Delta” included in Action E4 - Monitoring the Purple Gallinule population in the Alfacada Lagoon has been granted by the Barcelona Zoo Foundation.

The main goal of the project is to define, using nitrogen and carbon stable isotopes analysis the trophic habits of the Purple Gallinule all year round. This will help to improve knowledge on the importance of rice plants on their feeding habits.
