Gustavo Paterno is a postdoctoral researcher of the Biodiversity Enrichment Experiment (EFForTS-BEE). His research focuses on:

  • the effect of biodiversity enrichment in oil-palm plantations on community natural regeneration and successional pathways;
  • disentangling the effect of taxonomic, phylogenetic and functional diversity into ecosystem function, resistance to invasion and ecosystems services;
  • trade-offs between biodiversity and oil-palm yield;
  • and data integration and synthesis.
