Research profile

I am a plant population ecologist and evolutionary biologist. My research spans local to large geographical scales and combines field and molecular ecological approaches. Woody plants are my favourite study organisms, and dispersal processes represent a common denominator of my different research lines:

  • Interactions between animal-dispersed plants and their dispersers
  • Demography of woody plant recruitment
  • Ecological determinants of population genetic structures
  • Phylogeography and species range dynamics
  • Climate relict populations and their refugia
