Personal profile


My main research interest is the interactions between the vegetation and the soil microorganisms and how this is regulated by abiotic factors such as nutrient availability. The arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis is of fundamental importance for the understanding of ecosystem processes and the study of regulation of nutrient exchange in the symbiosis at various scales (physiology to ecosystems) is therefore a central research issue. Other projects deals with the biodiversity (plants, fungi and insects) in grasslands and how it can be preserved in the most efficient way.
