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.
