Our main research line relies on wood to gain a long-term temporal perspective of ecosystems response to the environment. Xylem encapsulates an annual record of the environment in which plants grew and how environment impacted them. So, we use dendrochronology and quantitative wood anatomy to evaluate responses of individuals and populations, going from individual plants to the landscape scale using remote sensing data (satellite, LiDAR) to have a larger spatial perspective of ecosystem responses. We also love mushrooms and aim at disentangling the factors behind fungi fruiting to predict present and future yields in a warmer and drier world.
