Research profile

My research is focused on Biogeography. I am particularly interested in understanding patterns of species’ distribution (plants in particular) in space and time. My main purpose of study is looking for identifying relevant biogeographical questions for the conservation and protection of the biota of Chile by using modeling methods, herbarium data and environmental variables. In addition to that, my research interests are aimed at working with vegetational and bioclimatological classification, and methods that allow spatialize climatic and enviromental variables. Other topics of interest are Evolution, Spatial Ecology, Global changes, Epistemology and History of Sciences.
