Research group Group Nascimento

The overall focus of my research is to understand how ecosystems respond to anthropogenic and environmental disturbances both structurally and functionally.

Specifically, the research activities have been guided by four main topics:  

1. Responses of ecological communities to human disturbance

2. Species interaction effects on benthic ecosystem processes

3. Driving mechanisms of biodiversity in the Baltic Sea

4. Toxicity of mixtures of contaminants on ecosystem function
