Environmental Stress & Functional Ecology - ESFE

seed conservation seed ecology seed germination

I received a Ph.D. in Ecology and Biosystematics from the University of Lisbon in 2003 and I am currently working in the ESFE (Environmental Stress & Functional Ecology) research group of cE3c. My research focuses on seed ecology and conservation. I was Seed Curator at Banco de Sementes A.L. Belo Correia, Jardim Botânico, MUHNAC and I coordinated the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership in Portugal for seven years. I lead the implementation of the ex situ conservation programme for Portuguese plant species protected under habitats Directive in order to meet the objectives of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation, in collaboration with ICNF. I currently collaborate with European seed conservation institutes and networks.
My current research is driven by three overarching objectives: i) to assess the effect of intensive management practices on the diversity of the soil seed bank in olive groves; ii) to estimate seed longevity and identify factors that determine this trait, and iii) to characterize germination ecology and seed responses to fire-related cues.
