20 June 2022

José Luis Yela is an Associate Professor of Zoology and Conservation Biology and founder of the DITEG research group at the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Toledo, Spain. He serves also as a member of the Scientific Committee of the List of Wild Species under Special Protection Regime and of the Spanish Catalog of Threatened Species and Spanish Catalog of Invasive Alien Species from the Spanish Ministry of Ecological Transition. He just joined the Editorial board of Zookeys as a Subject Editor for the Lepidoptera family Noctuidae. Currently, at the University of Castilla-La Mancha, Yela is leading an integrative taxonomic revision of the whole Noctuoidea fauna of the Ibero-balearic area, as part of the Fauna Ibérica project.

“Noctuoids have been my favorite group for more than 50 years, given their enormous diversity, crypticity and degree of endemism in the Iberian area, as well as their ecological and economic importance. Integrative studies, which merge data on pheromones, internal genitalia and genetic barcodes, are opening enormous gates towards the knowledge of the identity and evolutionary relationships of species and lineages, which are irresistible to cross”.
