Biography
My main research interests are: Plant diversification and sympatric speciation through polyploidization; Evolutionary dynamics of diploid-polyploid plant groups namely the origin, maintenance and ecological consequences of polyploidy in several complexes; Plant-pollinator interactions driving extant plant diversity; Pollination ecosystem services for sustainable agroecosystems: pollination deficits for crop yield and pollinator improvement solutions; Biodiversity conservation: reproductive biology, ecology and in situ and ex situ conservation of endangered species, integrated conservation of biological units, links and functions.
