  Brief description   At present, a fund is being promoted to supporting basic priority researches, which are integrated and of technological validation on the Reserve’s management, trying to systematize and diffuse the results of researches and monitoring among the different users. It is also intended to design and operate a monitoring network of water quality as well as other physical, biological and social elements within the reserve, which allow to know the behaviour of these elements during the time.
