Work ExperienceI have experience in fieldwork related to the population dynamics of mammals in disturbed areas of the Monte Desert in Argentina. I have applied techniques for sampling small mammals and characterization of habitats from the vegetation. I developed field and laboratory works related to landscape ecology as characterization of soils types, patches of habitats spatial pattern analysis, processing satelite imagie and GIS. I have worked in projects related to conservation and ecology of biodiversity in argentine drylands. I have recently focused on the ecologycal indicators of degradation in grazed landscape in central Argentina
