A. Plant stock quality for resforestation
Research line focused on to develop specific protocols for seedlings culture of Mediterranean species for reforestation of degraded areas. Culture protocols and techniques takes into account the ecological requirements and functional characteristics of species.
Research line focused on research and development of restoration measures and strategies to combat desertification and promote the recovery of vegetation in dry and semi-arid degraded ecosystems. This line also addresses the study of the effect of restoration on ecosystem function.
C. Functional Ecology of Mediterranean plants
Research line focused on the functional characteristics of Mediterranean species and their mechanisms of resistance to stressful conditions, mainly drought stress. This research line is developed in seedlings and it is aimed to improve restoration techniques and management of degraded ecosystems.
