Dr. Ana del Arco

Research interest

My research interest is how communities and population respond to antrophic-driven environmental changes. I aim to disentangle the role of ecology-evolution interplay on community responses (rescue, divergent or cryptic) to chemical stress. 

  • Role of eco-evolutionary dynamics to buffer antropogenic changes
  • Community responses under chemical stress
  • Model microbial community of host-virus-virophage-bacterium
  • Complexity levels from laboratory to mesocosms experiments
