Jesus Bastida is enrolled as a post-doc in our group to address macroevolutionary questions regarding domestication using the comparative method.
Nieves Martín-Robles. Nieves performs her PhD thesis on the evolution of root mutualisms during plant domestication
Pablo García-Palacios. Pablo works on litter dynamics, and contributed a superb work on litter chemistry and decomposition as affected by domestication (main paper here). We are working on follow-ups of that work.
Silvia Matesanz is using our crops-wild progenitors study system to test hypotheses on whether and how phenotypic plasticity and integration has changed during crop evolution.
Gerlinde de Dyen & Janna Barel, at Wageningen University, are doing great experiments on how plant soil feedbacks work for pasture species from comercial and from wild seedstocks. We are doing the same for agricultural crop and wild progenitor species.
