Dr.  FERNÁNDEZ, Romina Daiana
(PhD fellow at CONICET)

I am mainly interested in studying different aspects of ecology of invasive plants. My doctoral dissertation was focused on the analyses of the mechanisms through which Ligustrum lucidum, an invasive exotic species, locally affects different factors that regulate the litter decomposition, the relative importance of those different factors, and how those factors influenced the decomposition pattern of invaded forests.In my current project I will evaluate the impact of this invasive species in different aspects of functional heterogeneity and its relation to properties and processes of the ecosystem linked to water, nitrogen and carbon dynamics.

The main objective goal of my research is to study the dynamics of the Dry Chaco forest with using remote sensing data and methods. A major goal is to find indicators to reliably identify forest degradation and separate it from forest conversion modification and natural disturbances.

My main areas of interest include land use science and conservation science, and the links between them. During my PhD thesis and in the near future I analyze the consequences of different land uses and their changes over diversity, mainly of vertebrates, and ecosystem services at different scales of analyses.

I am interested in studying the territorial dynamics and forcing changes in land use to understand their influence on socio-ecosystems and on possible future scenarios of land use. Currently my focus of study are the countries and ecoregions of South America, and I pay special attention to the processes and forces, regional or global, that explain the different land uses in this continent.

My main research interests are linked to understand the effects of anthropic processes as forest loss and fragmentation of Dry forest Ecoregion on bird assemblages. Additionally, I am evaluating the role that linear remmnats of native forests left in the agricultural landscapes have in the delivery of ecosystem services. My interests are also focus to the rehabilitation and restoration of the degraded dry forests fragments.

My studies aim to contribute to the creation of carbon balance models in forest plantations to analyze the impact of possible future scenarios of land uses. In particular, I will investigate the regional, spatial and temporal dynamics of carbon in the biomass and soil of Eucalyptus spp. Plantations. in the basin of the Uruguay River.
I am also interested in the study of changes in ecological processes of Celtis ehrenbergiana forests, associated with both the invasion of exotic tree species and the rehabilitation activities

I am a biologist interested in studying the mechanisms that mediate the response of fauna to the transformation of the environmental, and its relationship with its ecosystemic function. In particular, to examine my questions I have used mainly vertebrates as models. During my doctoral thesis I will investigate the reciprocal effects between native forest of yungas and cultivated highbush blueberry, Vaccinium corymbosum, in terms of plant-animal interactions.To do so, I will evaluate the possible effects of the competition for pollinator  between the crop and native plants, in relation to landscape variables at different spatial scales.
