FOREFRONT: Researchers from the Netherlands, Brasil and Mexico are exploring options towards reconciling biodiversity conservation, ecosystem service supply and agriculturall production in anthropic tropical landscapes.

ROBIN: A large team of researchers from the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Austria, United Kingdom, Brasil, Bolivia and Mexico are exploring the role of biodiversity on climate change mitigation and the tradeoffs that emerge between ecosystem services and the needs of different stakeholders. http://robinproject.info/home/

RedSocioecos: I lead a national network on social-ecological system and sustainability with 400 researchers, students and members of the society from accross the country to together contribute to building sustainability. http://redsocioecos.org

In the Pacific Coast of Mexico

Tropical secondary dry forests and ecosystem services: Several students of the lab are assessing the potential supply, use and value (economic and sociocultural) of ecosystem services of secondary forests

Reserbos: I lead an interdisciplinary project that assesses patterns and processes associated to tropical forest regeneration and its impacts on biodiversity, ecosystem funcitons and ecosystme services

Jova: I participate in an interdisciplinary project on the resilience of the social-ecological system of the managed tropical dry forest to unfrequent events: the huracanes Jova and Patricia.
