Castro works as Junior researcher at University of Coimbra Department of Life Sciences, linked to FLOWer Lab - Laboratory of Ecology and Evolution of Plants, Agri-Environment and Pollination Services at Centre for Functional Ecology. Published 18 articles in journals. Has 1 book chapter. Participated in 4 science communication events. Participates and/or participated as collaborator in 2 projects, Post-doc Fellow in 3 projects, Research Fellow in 4 projects and Researcher in 5 projects. Works in the areas of Natural sciences emphasis on Ecology and Agrarian Sciences with emphasis on Agroecology. In her professional activities interacted with 230 collaborators co-authorship of scientific papers. In her curriculum Ciência Vitae the most frequent terms in the context of scientific, technological and artistic-cultural output are: Plant species; Functional traits; Ecosystem services; Agroecosystems; Climate change; Drought; Plant traits; Litter traits; Pollination services; Land use change; Plant functional traits; Litter decomposition; Plant physiology; Land management; Biodiversity; Land use; Pollination deficits; Vegetation; Crops. From 2018 on, while still maintaining research in plant diversity and traits, through collaborations, H. Castro has focused on plant-pollinator interactions and pollination services to crops.
