The theme of the thesis is the relationship between genetic diversity and functional responses of plant species (Juniperus phoenicea) at various scales: at the level of plot (1ha in Doñana), locally (Doñana National Park) and regional (geographic gradient in the Iberian peninsula). Functional responses include reproductive success, growth and drought-induced die-off decay. Supervisors will be Cristina Garcia (CIBIO) and Francisco Lloret (CREAF-UAB).

A good academic record is required and any publication, particularly those resulting from Master’s degree is highly valued.

Those interested can contact Francisco Lloret (CREAF) in francisco.lloret@uab.cat. Since the application period ends on June 25, please contact as soon as possible.
