I am a researcher working in the fields of plant ecology, plant-soil interactions, community ecology and functional ecology. I used observational and experimental studies conducted at regional and local scales to evaluate the responses of the functional structure of plant communities to climate and land cover changes, and to determine how plant functional attributes ultimately affect ecosystem functioning in semi-arid Mediterranean ecosystems. In addition, I am working on expanding and updating the analyses of patterns in temporal synchrony within different types of communities.
