Plant & Soil Science Group
Pursuing excellence in research and education.
Our research group was created in 2005, from the merging of two other groups to improve research on ecophysiology and agrobiology and to find better opportunities for human resources and funding. As a result, publications increased in the last years and training of graduate and PhD students has been highly improved.
We currently lead the Master in Terrestrial Ecosystems, Sustainable Use and Environmental Implications (ETUSIA), coordinated by Dr. Manuel J. Reigosa Roger. The corresponding doctorate program was given the excellence mention. Outstanding professors and researchers, coming from the Universities of Santiago, Granada, Autónoma de Barcelona, Coimbra, etc.; and several centres of the National Research Council (CSIC, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas) are involved in this master.
