João Honrado

Brief info

Biologist with a PhD in vegetation sciences from the University of Porto, where I am an assistant professor of ecology, biodiversity and natural resources. My research focuses on the agents, processes and consequences of changes in ecosystems and the landscape.

I use a socio-ecological research framework to address the ecological and social impacts of the various processes that drive the dynamics of socio-ecological systems, from climate change and biological invasions to changes in land use and forest fire regimes.

My approach focuses on assessing and managing the state, vulnerability and resilience, using principles and methods from vegetation ecology, landscape ecology and socio-ecological systems theory. Through my research, I intend to improve conservation strategies, land use planning and land use systems from a global change perspective, linking landscape processes to the services and social benefits that sustain them.
