About

I am a plant ecologist. I focus my work mainly in fire ecology and plant evolution and I have conducted my studies in fire-prone Mediterranean ecosystems (specifically in the Mediterranean Basin). My work encompasses the study of important traits for plant persistence in fire-prone ecosystems. Specifically I study post-fire regeneration strategies (germination and resprout) and plant flammability traits. Regeneration is a key process for the success of plant populations and understanding this process provide clear clues for ecology and evolution of the species, as well as for predicting the future of our species in a changing world. I also study the impact of fire on the genetic variability of these species. The aim of my work is to help understanding the role of fire in shaping plant species (i.e., fire-related plant traits) and populations.
