Vicente is generally interested in animal communication and wildlife ecology, behaviour, management and conservation. Since 1998 his research has focused on a range of topics relating to the ecology, behaviour and conservation of wolves. His major research interests are wolf acoustic communication, development of tools useful for monitoring wolf populations, predator-prey relationships and mitigation of wolf-human conflict due to predation on livestock. He combines his job as a wildlife consultant focused on wolf management with his PhD thesis on acoustic communication in Iberian wolves, description and function of acoustic signals and usefulnes of audio recording analyses for monitoring wolf populations.
