  • I am interested in understanding the mechanisms behind the  response of terrestrial plant communities to different disturbances. My  current project tries to identify which components of diversity can  promote the resilience of plant communities. Specifically, I am  developing a meta-analysis of studies that had evaluated resilience in  plant communities to test whether different components of functional  diversity are related to their resilience after disturbances. This  project will contribute to the development of a common framework on the  links between diversity and ecological resilience and  will also highlight knowledge gaps in this area.
