My main research interest is in using complex species-interactions networks to frame important conservation problems at the community level. Such trophic or mutualist networks offer an holistic view-point to evaluate the causes and consequences of disturbances, such as the impact of biological invasions, polution, biodiversity-loss or global change, on important ecosystem functions, particularly seed-dispersal and pollination.
