publicationsMost of my scientific work has focused on biodiversity and process-oriented studies concerning population and community ecology in marine benthic habitats, especially those dominated by long-lived species. These structural species are considered engineer species with significant effects on the structure and function of their communities (e.g. sponges, cnidarians, bryozoans and tunicates). They are typically very abundant and occur on both soft and hard substrate in shallow and deep marine environments throughout the world. These communities are especially sensitive to disturbances associated to climate change and other multiple human-derived threats, which poses serious challenges for their conservation.
