Article
Vegetation canopy plays a key role in the local water balance by partitioning rainfall into interception, throughfall and stemflow in dry forests. Many invasive plants have the capacity to replace native species and alter the net amount and spatial distribution of rainfall reaching the soil. In this paper, we aimed to compare the rainfall partition...
Article
Ecological theory predicts that the success of exotic plants in new environments depends on a combination of ecological attributes. Requirements for germination and seedling traits are the main components in the regenerative niche, and largely determine the success of exotic species in a new environment. Acacia dealbata Link is an Australian specie...

Project
Douglas-fir, the most abundant exotic tree in Nahuel Huapi National Park is aggressively invading under native Nothofagus forest on the Isla Victoria, and is converting it to an exotic-dominated forest. The aim of this project is to evaluate different Douglas-fir tree-removal strategies to prevent its expansion by considering the role co-invading soil fungi that facilitate tree invasion. Field experiments will follow to determine the sustainable restoration program needed to revert back to a healthy native forest
Project
Understanding the contribution of belowground interacting mechanisms such as mycorrhizal-mediated facilitation, root-pathogen induced antagonism, and root competition in native forests under threat by invading exotic trees.
