Abstract

© 2016 CSIC. Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente’s huge media output concerning the natural sciences allows us to thoroughly explore the processes of generation, circulation and management of scientific-technological knowledge in a particularly turbulent context of Spain’s recent history, the end of Franco’s dictatorship. With an approach focused on the relations between human beings and their environment, Rodríguez de la Fuente’s multidimensional work, as a falconer, naturalist, activist and broadcaster, contributed an exceptional scientific-technical component to the processes of social, political and cultural transformation of Spain in those years. The aim of this paper is to show how that scientific-technical element was often linked, among other aspects, to the definition and contextualization of Spain and its natural heritage both within its borders and in the international scene.
