My research is focused on the dynamics and functioning of Andean socio-ecosystems in northwestern Argentina, with emphasis on vegetation dynamics, in the context of global changes. I am interested in evaluating how changes in climate and land use influence vegetation composition and structure and the provision of ecosystem services along the altitudinal gradient.
Land change trade-offs for ecosystem services and biodiversity
On 28 June the GLP Socio-Ecological Land Systems in Latin America Working Group and the GLP Nodal Office for Latin America presented the newly-created Network of Andean Social-Ecological Observatories (funded by the ESA-Future Earth Joint Program), that integrates the social-ecological monitoring efforts of the region. The webinar recording and presenters' slides are now available.
