About

I am Aitor Ameztegui, research fellow at the Universitat de Lleida, and associated researcher at the Forest Sciences Center of Catalonia (CTFC). My main research aims at assessing how different forest management approaches may interact with climate change, and how this can affect the provision of ecosystem services. My research interests also include assessing the causes and consequences of forest expansion in mountain areas, and understanding the mechanisms that drive species coexistence and forest resilience, particularly post-disturbance.​
