Theoretical ecology

We are interested in understanding which ecosystem properties favor the maintenance of biodiversity in the face of environmental changes.
We contributed to develop structural stability as the mathematical framework that allows addressing this question, and characterizing under which circumstances mutualistic interactions enhance structural stability and biodiversity.
