Research Interests

I´m a community ecologist interested in several topics, such as i) diversity-ecosystem functioning relationships, ii) plant-plant interactions, their biotic and abiotic drivers, and their consequences for plant community assembly, iii) the effect of grazing pressure, climate or land use on plant diversity, or iv) woody encroachment.

Number of items: 22.
