Field of research

I am trained as a researcher of Plant Ecology, focusing particularly on the functioning and dynamics of Mediterranean ecosystems. My research is primarily based on functional traits approach, and deals with aspects of ecology ranging from ecophysiology to ecosystem ecology. I assess the functional structure of plant communities and its changes under different scenes, such as natural environmental gradients, invasive processes or extreme climatic events.

KEY WORDS: functional ecology; functional diversity; plant community structure; plant-soil interactions, root traits
