Her PhD thesis focuses on the study of the short and medium term effects of prescribed burning on Mediterranean pines. Specifically, we aim to understand the mechanisms driven by fire that affects the primary and secondary metabolism of pine species. The ultimate goal is to contribute to the scientific basis for optimizing the burning prescription in order to achieve management objectives and minimize the negative effects on the ecosystem.
