That and other TV appearances made him a celebrity in Venezuela even performing in movies conducting an orchestra. Romero attributes his decision to become a scientist the day the press announced the launch of Sputnik. He obtained a Licenciatura in biologywith a zoology concentration, from the Universitat de Barcelona inwhile working as a scientist in several institutions and as science writer for several printed, radio, and TV media.
He obtained his doctorate in biology from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Floridawith a doctoral dissertation on the evolution and behavior of cavefish.
Romero met his wife Ana during the early s while both were undergraduate students at the Universitat de Barcelona. In he fled his native Venezuela to the United States, after denouncing the killing of dolphins by Venezuelan fishermen and receiving death threats. Romero accepted the position as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville ina position that he held until While an undergraduate student in Biology at the Universitat de LP in Spain, Romero volunteered at the Museum of Zoology later renamed as Museum of Natural Sciences where he created the Hydrobiology Section  led a group of other undergraduates to work on aquatic organisms reorganizing some of the collections and re-identifying some of the mislabeled specimens.
He also volunteered working at the Museum of Geology of Album) Seminario Conciliar of Barcelona where he described several new species of Middle Triassic million years old horseshoe crabs and a set of fossils that he described as an entirely new group subphylum of animals never reported to science before. As a graduate student at the University of Miami, Romero specialized on the study of the evolution, behavior, and ecology of cavefishes.
Through these studies he was the first to propose that colonization of cave environments was an active process via behavioral adaptations preceding morphological ones e. He suggested that the mechanism behind this phenomenon was a little understood biological process at the time called phenotypic plasticity. This challenged the typological view of all cave creatures as completely differentiated from a genetic viewpoint from their surface epigean ancestors.
According to Romero all what was needed for the evolution of drastically morphologically distinct cave species were just a few changes in the genes controlling the development of features such as eyes and pigmentation. These and other ideas were Adios A Ocumare - Aldemaro Romero And His Salon Orchestra - Valses Venezolanos (Vinyl in a book. Romero studied the history and practices of exploitation of marine mammals in the Caribbean basin.
To that end he conducted field and archival studies in Venezuela Trinidad and Tobago Grenada St Vincent and the GrenadinesBarbadosand Bermuda    as well as in libraries and archives in the Adios A Ocumare - Aldemaro Romero And His Salon Orchestra - Valses Venezolanos (Vinyl U. He concluded that local shore whaling combined with Yankee whaling were responsible for the depletion of many whale and dolphin populations throughout the Caribbean basin and that both types of whaling influenced each other from a cultural viewpoint.
Romero has described a number of fossil species of horseshoe crabs,  jellyfishes  of which there are very few good-quality fossil impressions from around the world and a group of very unusual species that he grouped under the name of Paleocyphonates, which he described as a new subphylum. He proposed the hypothesis that these extinct, medium-size fossil impressions represented the adult stage of today existing larva cyphonautes and supported such hypothesis not only with paleontological information but with physiological and developmental biology data as well.
In addition to his studies on marine mammal exploitation in the Caribbean, Romero also carried out a number of field and archival studies about the exploitation of other marine animals in the same region.
One of those allowed him to discover that the first animal population depleted by Europeans in the American continent was of a pearl oyster species Pinctada imbricata off the coast of Venezuela. In he studied historical records and used information about the biology of these and other species to explain its rapid disappearance. A decade later he founded the Caracas Philharmonic Orchestraadditionally serving as its first conductor -- during the course of his career, he also conducted the London Symphony Orchestrathe English Chamber Orchestraand the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
He was born in Album)Carabobo State. Romero was a prolific composer, creating a wide range of music, such as Caribbean, Jazz, Venezuelan waltzes, including works for orchestra, orchestra and soloist, orchestra and choir, chamber music, up to symphonic works of great dimensions. In Romero signed contract with RCA Victor to record with a full orchestra, what was to be a very successful album in the "Dinner In Afterwards, recorded numerous LP albums in different countries.
