New fellowship achieved. TreEsilience: Global patterns of intraspecific variation in tree resilience to drought

Lucía DeSoto has been recently granted with a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship to carry out TreEsilience project. TreEsilience aims using tree rings to investigate the role of local adaptation in determining intraspecific variation in tree resilience to drought.

TreEsilience will use an interdisciplinary approach that combines dendrochronology, phylogenetic comparative methods and species distribution modelling, thus bringing tools from the spatial and evolutionary ecology to the study of forest management and conservation. Therefore, TreEsilience will gather an interdisciplinary team, José M. Gómez and Cristina Armas (EEZA-CSIC), Antoine Guisan (DEE-UNIL), Paco Lloret and Jordi Martínez-Vilalta (CREAF) and Agresta S.
