Impact of forest eutrophication on plant diversity and animal-plant interactions
In collaboration with Dr. Lucas Garibaldi and the PhD student Margarita Fernández we are assessing experimentally the bottom- up effects of forest eutrophication on plant diversity, animal-plant interactions and ecosystem functioning with especial emphasis on pollination, herbivory and nutrient cycling.
Ecological intensification to conserve biodiversity and improve provision of ecosystem services in farmlands
In collaboration with Dr. Lucas Garibaldi, Dr. Georg Andersson, Dr. Fabrice Requier and Dra. Juliana Hipólito we are working in different research lines for assessing how ecological intensification affect biodiversity conservation and the provision of multi-dimensional ecosystem services (environmental, social and economic) in small-holder farms.
Winners and losers from Global Change: consequences for pollination mutualisms
In collaboration with Dr. Lucas Garibaldi, Dr. N. Bartomeus, Lic. Juan Agüero and Lic. Carolina Coulin, we are evaluating the impact of different processes of global change on pollination mutualisms. We use both an observational and an experimental approach to link shifts in the structure and functional diversity of pollinator communities with the reproductive outcome of plant populations.
