Tara Canelo is a post-doctoral researcher addressing plant-herbivore interactions in montados and dehesas. Tara investigates the ecological and evolutionary processes beyond plant-herbivore interactions in oak ecosystems, and aims to use this knowledge for the sustainable management of these ecosystems. Tara work combines ecology, population genetics, and remote sensing, focusing on interactions between leaf defoliators, acorn boring insects and livestock grazing.
