We are very happy to announce that María Hurtado de Mendoza Romo (Yes, she has this long name, isn’t that cool!) has joined the lab to conduct her PhD. She will be the FPI (Research investigator under training) of our MeDiNaS project. She will study the spatiotemporal mechanisms that maintain plant … [Read more...] about Welcome Maria Hurtado to MESSY lab. PhD on species coexistence in variable environments
Our project entitled “Mechanisms of species coexistence in variable environments” (MeDiNaS) has been funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (RTI2018-098888-A-I00). During three years (2019-2021), we will be studying at Doñana National Park the spatiotemporal mechanisms that … [Read more...] about New funded project by Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation
