Current research lines

General Research Topics:
  • Plant-animal interactions (mostly herbivory, seed dispersal).
  • Plant-plant interactions (facilitation vs competition as drivers of community dynamics).
  • Global Change Ecology (population and community responses).
  • Ecology of forest regeneration in Mediterranean environments.
  • Restoration Ecology (biodiversity restoration).
  • Ecology and biodiversity of Mediterranean Ecosystems (particularly High Mountain Ecosystems).
  • Forest Ecology.
  • Bizarre ecological interactions (carnivorous plants ( Pinguicula..), parasitic plants ( Viscum…). etc.)
Specific Key words (more related to my current research):
  • Interaction between interactions (plant-plant vs plant-animal interactions).
  • Mobile links.
  • Ecological monitoring.
  • Emerging ecosystems.
  • Ecological interactions as drivers of passive restoration processes and ecosystem services.
  • Scale-dependence of plant-animal interactions.
  • Global change and forest pests.
  • Global change: forest migration and regeneration.
  • Ecology of parasitic plants (Viscum album): the balance of plant-plant/plant- animal interactions.
