My research interest is to understand how the limitation of water transport in plants can affect leaf growth and plant height specially in small trees and shrubs. I want to know the thresholds of these hydraulic limits. I also want to know how this hydraulic limitation can determine the shape of some plants; related to this goal, I have proposed a hypothesis on the development of the wide crown in isolated trees. I also study plant form and other acclimations as indicators of microsite condition and its use as a diagnostic tool for forest management. Another area of research is the study of water and carbon fluxes using different approaches along different marine, terrestrial and urban systems.
