Curriculum vitae

 

 

Research interests:

  • Regeneration silviculture of oaks
  • Stem quality improvement in young forest stands
  • Intraspecific and interspecific interactions (competition vs. facilitation)  
  • Relationships between species diversity and stand productivity
  • Influence of drought on tree growth and survival
  • Scope of meta-analysis for doing research synthesis in forestry
