Brief summary of work: His work relates to the role of Mediterranean vegetation cover on runoff generation, erosion and retention of water contents in the soil. Until 1990, its work focuses mainly on the Mediterranean holm oak, to pass in recent years to the study of native Mediterranean shrub species mainly regrowth in relation to water dynamics in soil-plant pine understory environments or in areas deforested analyzing the ecological relationships that focus on applied aspects in the management of Mediterranean natural resources, specifically in the forest and its implications on the water cycle.
