Plant Ecology and Biodiversity Lab
We study the distribution and abundance of vascular plants, with a special interest in the diversity, biogeography and regeneration of plant communities, and their responses to global change. Research methods include the analysis of botanical databases, biodiversity modelling and experiments. Our main aim is to understand the patterns and dynamics of plant cover as a tool for preserving ecosystems.
"Without plants, there is no life. The functioning of our planet, and our survival, depends on plants"
