Areas of expertise
My research is focused on the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms that cause and maintain the high diversity of flowering plants. My main interest is in plant interactions with animals and with environmental factors in wild populations. We do field work in tropical, temperate and Mediterranean environments. Current work combines field and greenhouse observations with genomic markers to study evolutionary potential in natural populations.
