Ecology of Environmental Change - eChanges

Environmental changes Lichens Functional diversity Ecological indicators

I graduated in Biology from the University of Coimbra and did my master in Ecology and Environmental Management at the University of Lisbon. My master thesis was on the development of ecological indicators of nitrogen impacts in cork oak woodlands, based on epiphytic lichens and coprophagous beetle’s functional diversity. I am currently doing my PhD  “Using Lichens Diversity to track the effects of climate change: can we do this at a global scale?” at FCUL which aims at using epiphytic lichens as an ecological indicator to identify the effects of climate change at the ecosystem level, both in time and space.

My main interests are in working with the effects of global changes, primarily climate change, at the ecosystem level and in potential ways to mitigate those.
