"Rafael Riosmena-Rodriguez"

I am deeply interested in the marine habitats dominated by Marine Plants and their interactions as high biodiversity ecosystems. I am particularly interested in their role in process such as recruitment, foraging and reproductive site of critical species for conservation but also fisheries species. My long term aim is to understand the evolutionary mechanisms who drives those ecosystems.
