Víctor Resco de Dios

Professor of Tree Biology

Southwest University of Science and Technology & UdL

I am a Professor at Southwest University of Science and Technology and I also hold an affiliation with University of Lleida. My current research revolves around:

  1. Rhythmic ecology: Exploring diurnal, seasonal and annual rhythms in plant growth, reproduction and gas exchange and how they are driven by the interplay between circadian vs exogenous factors.
  2. Pyrophysiology: Trying to understand the physiological mechanisms that affect fire activity and, at the same time, how fires shape plant species structure and function.

I am a member of the Editorial Boards of New Phytologist, Regional Environmental Change, Trees, Plant Ecology and Diversity, Forests, Forest Systems and Frontiers in Forests and Global Change.
