About
I am mainly interested in studying different aspects of ecology of invasive plants. My doctoral dissertation was focused on the analyses of the mechanisms through which Ligustrum lucidum, an invasive exotic species, locally affects different factors that regulate the litter decomposition, the relative importance of those different factors, and how those factors influenced the decomposition pattern of invaded forests.In my current project I will evaluate the impact of this invasive species in different aspects of functional heterogeneity and its relation to properties and processes of the ecosystem linked to water, nitrogen and carbon dynamics.
