This group specialises in ecology of rivers and lakes, including biological indicators of water pollution, eutrophication of reservoirs and large rivers using mainly macro invertebrates.

Narcís Prat is member of the board of the SETAC group – their focus lies on creating awareness regarding the issue of salinization of rivers and the effects this could have on freshwaters.

Narcís has a large experience as a professor and in giving conferences about topics related to ecology. In cooperation with the research group he is leading, he has published several articles on topics related to the “Effects of Fire on Mediterranean Streams” and also “Salinization of Freshwaters, a Global Issue”.

The FEM investigates the effects of forest fires on Mediterranean streams. Their current work is being done in several countries in Europe; mainly in Spain, but also abroad in countries such as Ecuador, Colombia and Peru. The research group has been working in dry land rivers for many years and they are involved in the European project MIRAGE (Mediterranean Intermittent Rivers Ecology and Management).
