Research Question
How does habitat disturbance affect the ecosystem functioning in tropical seagrass meadows?

Currently, I am focusing on the impacts of herbivory on ecosystem functioning in shallow Thalassodendron ciliatum meadows where the focus is at the microscale trophic level (epiphytic assemblages and fish larvae) as well as the macro-scale trophic level (fish assemblages) and how their habitat use is related to degradation. Further, my research interests are focused also on how the physiological and morphological traits of seagrass plants can be used to make specific predictions regarding seagrass response to disturbances.
