Alexandra Correia has a strong background on ecophysiology monitoring of Mediterranean woody species, with experience in soil-plant-atmosphere monitoring particularly carbon and water fluxes in trees, shrubs, herbaceous and soil level focusing on the impacts of seasonal droughts on ecosystem productivity and plant functioning. Experience in carbon sequestration monitoring, analysis and interpretation using outputs from the eddy-covariance method. Modelling carbon stock using biomass alometric equations according with IPCC guidelines. Applied ecological studies using tree rings, remote sensing techniques, phenology monitoring approaches to study the responses to abiotic stresses. Several topics regarding forest management and adaptative silviculture, namely Pinus pinea fertirrigation, Quercus suber stripping, improved pastures in soil quality and productivity, Eucalyptus globulus soil residues and organic material management in species growth and response to biotic and abiotic stresses. The last 7 years have been dedicated to the study of species mixtures (Pinus pinea and Quercus suber) to increase resilience to environmental changes.
