Antonio Fontdevila es un biólogo evolutivo[1]​ español, catedrático emérito de Genética e investigador del Departamento de Genética y de Microbiología de la Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona,[2]​ donde ha desarrollado gran parte de su carrera científica. Natural de Barcelona, se doctoró en Genética en septiembre de 1971 con el reconocido Doctor Antoni Prevosti i Pelegrín y completó su formación posdoctoral con el biólogo evolutivo Francisco José Ayala en la Universidad de California (1971-1973).

Carrera e investigación[editar]

Fue catedrático numerario de genética de la Universidad de Santiago de Compostela[3]​ (1973-1980) y posteriormente en la Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona donde actualmente es catedrático emérito en Genética. Profesor visitante y conferenciante más de cuarenta veces en universidades y centros de investigación de quince países diferentes, además de investigador principal de más de veinte proyectos financiados por agencias nacionales e internacionales.

Sus trabajos de investigación en genética evolutiva más conocidos tratan sobre el papel de la hibridación interespecífica en la movilización de los elementos transponibles, así como sobre la arquitectura genética del aislamiento reproductivo, genética evolutiva de la colonización y la medida de la aptitud biológica en poblaciones naturales de Drosophila.

Autor de más de 140 publicaciones,[4]​ la mayoría en revistas de alto impacto como Nature, Genetics, Evolutión, Molecular Biology and Evolution, Journal of Evolutionary Biology, The American Naturalist y Heredity.

Así como doce capítulos de libro, editor de un libro y autor de cuatro libros, entre ellos The Dynamic Genome: A Darwinian Approach (Oxford University Press, 2011), que ha sido adoptado como libro de referencia de diversos másteres de biología y genética en universidades nacionales y extranjeras.

Ha sido nombrado miembro del consejo de la Society for the Study of Evolution (EE. UU., 1986) y elegido vicepresidente de la Sociedad Española de Genética (1985-1989). Es miembro fundador y socio honorario de la Sociedad Española de Biología Evolutiva.[5]​ Ha sido director del Departamento de Genética (1973-80) y vicedecano y decano (1977) de la Facultad de Biología de la Universidad de Santiago de Compostela.

Director del departamento de genética (1980-1985) y del departamento de genética y Microbiología (1997-1999) de la Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona.

Recibió los máximos honores por su actividad de investigación durante treinta y seis años por el Ministerio de Investigación y Educación de España y por la Generalidad de Cataluña.
