Through the identification and micropropagation of elm trees which  show enhanced resistance to Dutch elm disease, researchers at the School of Forest Engineering and Natural Resources (ETSIMFMN-UPM) contribute to fight against a pathology that has already killed one billion trees in Europe and North America   The Hydrobiology Research Group at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM) has more than 20 years of experience working on applied ecology and fluvial management in Spain. Since then, the group has shared this knowledge and participated in projects dealing with human impact on aquatic resources, fisheries management and physical habitat evaluation.
