‘Using Facilitation to Reactivate Ecosystem Functions in Mining Structures Affecting Habitats of Community Interest (MINTEGRA)’

Grants for research teams

Ecology and Conservation Biology


Mining activity generates artificial micro-deserts whose toxicity, instability and hydrothermic stress prevent their natural recolonization and hinder restoration.. The goal now is to assess the utility of facilitation for reactivating ecosystem functions in mining structures affecting Habitats of Community Interest.
