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
Susana Gómez-González currently works at the Department of Biology, Universidad de Cádiz. Susana does research in Plant Ecology. Her current project is 'Assessing the impacts of forest plantations on ecosystem services'
The general aim of this proposal is to evaluate the dynamics, growth potential and sensitivity of Macaronesian laurel forests to climate variations in order to identify threatens and opportunities for their preservation derived from climate warming and land-use changes, respectively.
The main objective of this project is to quantitatively evaluate the impact of wildfires on the climate ambition of different countries on the American continent. Furthermore, we explore the potential role of Nature-based solutions as alternatives to strengthen Nationally Determined Contributions.
1) To disentangle the relative role of forest plantations and native vegetation in providing fire-regulating services at a global scale, and how environmental and management-related variables modulate them. 2) To evaluate the effects of artificial afforestation of natural habitats on: i) soil variables and their interactions; ii) the diversity of arthropods and plant-pollinator interactions; iii) tree productivity and tree resource use of cork-oak woodlands next to plantations
