GORONGOSA. PTDC/BIA-BEC/4019/2012. Investigadora Principal. EXPLORING BIODIVERSITY AND ECOLOGICAL NETWORKS FOR FOREST CONSERVATION AND RESTORATION IN GORONGOSA NATIONAL PARK - MOZAMBIQUE. (GORONGOSA). July 2013-June 2015

MUTUALNET. PTDC/BIA-BEC/103507/2008. Principal investigator. Below and aboveground mutualisms and the invasion by Australian acacias: relevance on invasive dynamics and consequences for native ecosystems (MUTUALNET). 2010-2012. The objective of this project is to determine the role of below and aboveground mutualisms in the invasive expansion of A. dealbata, A. longifolia and A. saligna. Our general working hypotheses are a) the Australian acacias need to find compatible mutualists in the invaded range in order to establish permanent viable populations, and b) the invasion by Australian acacias will disrupt native plant-mutualist networks leading to ecosystem degradation and therefore facilitating the progress of invasion

Acção Integrada Luso-Espanhola 2009-2010: Effect of soil biota on the clonal growth of Trifolium sp.: potential use for restoration of heavy metal polluted environments.Team: Susana Rodríguez Echeverría (PI), Cristina Nabais, António Portugal, Sergio R. Roiloa, Rubén Retuerto Franco, Julia Sánchez Vilas, Raimundo Bermúdez Villanueva. The proposed project will investigate the ecological implications of symbiotic soil biota on the capacity of clonal plants to colonize metal-polluted soils. Plant and soil mutualists will be collected from serpentine areas, where natural selection has already enhanced the appearance of tolerant plants, and from a non-metallipherous soil. Serpentine soils contain unusual high concentrations of phytotoxic elements as nickel, chromium and cobalt, making these areas a very stressful environment for plant growth. In this way, we want to compare the effect of plant genotype and soil mutualists on Trifolium sp. performance on metal-contaminated soils. The information obtained will be used to design a revegetation pilot program of a metal contaminated area using the most promising combinations of Trifolium sp. and soil mutualists.

ROBIN.2004-2008. POCI/BIA-BDE/56941/2004. Funded by the FCT. Principal Investigator. This project aimed at studying the role of belowground communities for the processes of invasion by exotic plant species. As a model to study the role of rhizosphere organisms in plant invasions we selected the case of the Australian woody legume Acacia longifolia in the Natural Reserve of São Jacinto. We focused in the main groups of rhizosphere organisms that affect plant growth and survival: arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), Rhizobiaceae bacteria, plant parasitic nematodes (and their natural enemies) and pathogenic fungi.

Acção Integrada Nº - E – 6/05 (2005-2006) “ The role of rhizobia symbiosis in the invasiveness of Acacia longifolia(Andr.) Willd. in the North coast of Portugal”. Principal Investigator. The Australian leguminous tree Acacia longifolia (Andr.)Willd. is one of the most invasive species along the Portuguese coast. In particular, this exotic species is a great threat to the conservation of native vegetation in the coastal dunes of the Natural Reserve of São Jacinto. Like most legumes, Acacia longifolia can enter into symbiosis with Rhizobaceae bacteria and develop root nodules where nitrogen fixation takes place. Since nitrogen is one of the most limiting elements for plant growth in terrestrial ecosystems the symbiosis confers legumes an extraordinary advantage when colonising new areas.  We, therefore, propose to study the symbiotic promiscuity of Acacia longifolia in order to determine the role of the symbiosis in the invading ability of this species.

EcoTrain. 2002-2006. RTN2-2001-0464 Funded by the European Union. Post-doctoral researcher. EcoTrain aims to examine the regulation of plant parasitic nematodes in natural ecosystems, which processes contribute most to nematode control, and how predictable they are. EcoTrain will use coastal sand dunes of Europe as a natural model system. In EcoTrain, ecologists will use the extensive knowledge of agronomists on processes that regulate populations of plant parasitic nematodes. Agronomists will use the experience of ecologists to obtain fundamental knowledge on the principles of the regulation of nematode populations. EcoTrain will help the targeting of future search for nematode control measures in production systems

Research Interests

I am interested in the mechanisms that drive the structure and composition of plant communities. In particular my research focuses in three topics: diversity of mutualisms between plants and soil microbes, integrating soil microbiota in plant-plant interactions and biogeography of plants and soil microbial mutualists.
