Descripción de las líneas de investigación:

Nuestro interés se centra en el estudio de los procesos ecológicos a escala regional. Utilizamos herramientas de teledetección en el análisis de patrones de uso del suelo y biodiversidad. A partir de nuestros resultados: 1) desarrollamos estrategias de conservación y manejo de ecosistemas basadas en un enfoque de funcionamiento de los ecosistemas, 2) evaluamos el impacto de las actividades humanas en los ecosistemas y 3) evaluamos los servicios de los ecosistemas mediante modelos biofísicos.
