Main areas

Biogeography has focused on the study of:

- Consequences of environmental changes (mainly global warming) in plant communities
- The impact of the sea level rise on coastal ecosystems
- Land use changes in the flora and vegetation structure and conservation status.

Influences of physical and human activities in the natural communities and landscape dynamics have been studied. Characterization of chloroplast genes was used to study peat bogs’ present ecological conditions in comparison with paleoenvironmental settings, allowing to reconstruct migration routes and glacial refugees of their flora and vegetation.
