Introduction
I am an ecologist specialized in wildlife management and conservation, and terrestrial ecosystem ecology. I am interested in understanding terrestrial herbivore-ecosystem interactions. My research is focused in how they interact with nutrient recycling. Understanding how herbivores can modify nutrient cycling (especially carbon cycling) is pivotal to reverse climate change. Moreover, it will be a powerful tool to halt soil poverty and desertification, and improve our ecosystems through rewilding

Different herbivores have different impacts on ecosystems because of differences in their diets, behaviour and energy requirements. The combined effects of different herbivores can in some cases compensate each other but lead...
