Current Students

Miguel Blázquez

Miguel is studying the radiation of the Ramalina decipiens group in Macaronesia. Using different approaches as analyses of function traits related with hydric relationships or characterization of abiotic niche, he tries to shed light on the adaptative nature of this radiation.

 

Alejandro Berliches de Gea

Alejandro studies the effect of forest fragmentation on myco-photobiont interaction networks in a  typical Mediterrenean agricultural landscape. Using metabarcoding data he tries to understand how patch size affects the loss of species and interactions.

Isaac recently moved from the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales (MNCN) to the Real Jardín Botánico. During a year he will work on species delimitation and population genomics in Ramalina.
