How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
My main research interest is the use of retrospective analysis to answer questions about forest ecology, environmental sciences and biogeography, in the context of global change. My fieldwork has focused mainly in Mediterranean forest of South America.

Este proyecto busca desarrollar estrategias y políticas públicas en sinergia con otras iniciativas como la de los PEGH, para la mantención y conservación de aquellos servicios ecosistémicos que serán prioritarios bajo las condiciones de mayor incertidumbre frente al cambio climático. La metodología contempla cuatro aproximaciones: Primero dendrocronología y teledetección para un análisis del estado de conservación del bosque. Segundo, simulación climática e hidrológica para la vinculación y evaluación de la resiliencia de indicadores de estado del bosque con niveles variables de bienes y servicios ecosistémicos. Tercero, simulación de escenarios climáticos para explorar la variación en bienes y servicios ecosistémicos. Cuarto, mediante trabajo con los actores tanto público como privados, traducción de los resultados de las proyecciones de las variaciones de los BSE del bosque nativo, en Paquetes de Pago por Servicios Ecosistémicos y estrategias y políticas de conservación del bosque nativo que consideren la no estacionariedad del clima futuro.
The aim of the project is evaluate the growth dynamics and genetic variability of remaining populations of N. macrocarpa and their vulnerability to the climate change. For this, we will perform sampling and fieldwork in five studies areas in central Chile using classic techniques of dendrochronology and forest genetic. The generated results will allow to highlight the conservation status of Mediterranean deciduous forest, characterized by the endemic species N. Macrocarpa. Thus, we could understand and evaluate the historical degradation that has affected this forest, which despite its current conservation state still would have a key ecological role in central Chile. Moreover, our results could be used in public decision making for conservation and ecological restoration of this ecosystem, considering that Chile is going through a time of discussion, modification and implementation of their Forestry laws
In this study it was determined the carbon content in tree compartments (e.g. stems, branches, leaves and roots) for mexican tree species.
