Dr. Teresa Marí

Early stage researcher

I hold a degree in Biology and my MSc in Biodiversity, both granted by the University of Barcelona, in 2009 and 2010, respectively. I also obtained my MSc in Teacher Training from the University of Balearic Islands in 2012. In 2017 I finished a PhD at the Laboratory of Functional Ecology and Global Change (ECOFUN) – University of Lleida. The study focuses on the relationships between soil microorganisms and plant functional groups and the role that they play in the goods and services that ecosystems provide in the face of climate change. I currently work following the same line of research, including the study of microbial dynamics in soils across fairy rings in grasslands.
