Under present conditions of environmental degradation, understanding the process of ecosystem recovery is essential to provide targeted action to accelerate the recovery of biodiversity and ecosystem functions and increase benefits to societies. Recovery is a long process that may take centuries and that must also adapt to changing conditions. My research focuses on understanding patterns and mechanisms regulating the recovery process of ecosystem´s complexity (e.g., biodiversity and ecosystem function relationships, amount and strength of interactions among organisms, stability of those relationships), define actions to accelerate the recovery process and adapt it to climate change, understand the socio-economic implications of the lack of ecosystem recovery, and use ecosystem restoration to adapt to climate change.
