My research falls within the field of evolutionary ecology. In particular, I try to comprehend diverse evolutionary processes (selection, adaptation, genetic drift, gene flow, speciation) in two mediterranean plant species throughout spatial gradients.

The methodological approaches used are:

  • The genetic bases of diverse functional traits combined with genetic tools and methods of quantitative genetics.
  • Neutral molecular variation studies to test demographic process.
  • Demographic variability studies to identify the main factors influencing the performance and persistence of the species studied.
