In this video podcast, Luisa Conti explains how ‘Functional trait differences and trait plasticity mediate biotic resistance to potential plant invaders‘, which is also the title of her recent paper published in Journal of Ecology.
Luisa’s video can also be found on the Journal of Ecology YouTube channel (English subtitles available).
Luisa Conti is a plant ecologist. She is interested in the interactions between plant functional patterns and community assembly processes, in plant invasions dynamics and their impacts, as well as in global change effects on vegetation. Luisa got her PhD from Roma Tre University in Italy and is now a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Botany at the University of South Bohemia in Czech Repubblic.
