Research group on “Biodiversity, Systematics and Conservation of vascular plants and fungi” BIOCONS-University of Salamanca (Spain).
We are a multidisciplinary group of researchers belonging to the areas of Botany, Ecology and Didactics of Experimental Sciences mainly interested in:
- Biosystematics, evolution, phylogeny, ecology and conservation of vascular plants and fungi.
- Primary production and efficiency in the use of resources in Mediterranean trees: differences among species with different leaf longevity and among growth stages within species. Implications of climate change on future distribution patterns.
- Agroecology and conservation of traditional varieties of plants with agronomic interest. Ethnobotany and forestry regulation, ecotourism, education and environmental awareness.
- DNA banking and characterization of plant genetic resources (wild vascular plants and fungi).
