The laboratory of Vegetation and Biodiversity is coordinated by Borja Jiménez-Alfaro at the University of Oviedo to investigate the distribution, abundance and regeneration of plants across habitats. The main goal is to understand patterns and processes regulating plant communities, as a tool for preserving ecosystems. Lab facilities are located at the Biodiversity Research Institute (IMIB), the Atlantic Botanic Garden and the Botany University section in Asturias, Spain.
