I’m a researcher at the IMIB Biodiversity Research Institute (University of Oviedo - CSIC - Principality of Asturias) working on:
Functional seed ecology. How plant regeneration by seed varies at different environmental scales, from macroecological patterns at the biome level, to microhabitat effects at the plot level. How these seed-environment relationships drive the distribution and persistence of plant diversity.
Plant responses to global change. How plants acclimatize and adapt to climate change and other global change aspects such as sea level rise and urbanization, with a special focus on (but not limited to) responses in regeneration by seed.
Soil microclimate. How climate varies at microscales within the soil, and how this variation is driven by factors such as waterlogging or snow cover.
In this website I collect and share the datasets and codes of my publications, plus some research tools, like the SylvanSeeds database and the seedr R package. Also check out the SeedArc initiative to build a global archive of primary seed germination data. Please get in touch for comments or questions about any of these items.
