I am a vegetation ecologist interested in biogeography, seed ecology and conservation biology. I study the diversity, distribution and regeneration of natural plant communities at different spatio-temporal scales. I am also strongly involved in the development and analysis of big data infraestructures such as the European Vegetation Archive (EVA) and the Global Vegetation Database (sPlot).
