I'm a biologist at the Instituto de Ecología Regional (IER) interested on different aspects of system dynamics applied to socio-ecological systems, including land use, ecosystem services and environmental impact. Currently I'm doing a PhD at the National University of Tucumán, Argentina studying the interplay between local and distant drivers of large scale natural land cover change along the ecoregions of South America
Telecoupling of land use systems, Land governance, Land change trade-offs for ecosystem services and biodiversity
A new paper in Sustainability Science looks at how transnational socio-ecological land systems highlight the influence of institutions under different governance regimes in defining the spatial configuration and ecological properties of regions. Land systems' asymmetries are mediated by the primary production of the ecosystems, agriculture aptitude and by contrasting perceptions and valuation of the same ecoregion across national borders. In addition, the land-use history, legacies and cultural heritage can promote land systems’ asymmetries depending on complex interactions and feedbacks of socio-ecological systems.
