Oliva, Jonàs



Jonàs Oliva is interested in forest pathogens and their role in forest ecosystems. His current projects focus on plant-soil feebdacks and the link between climate change and altitudinal and latitudinal range expansions of forest pathogens. He also works with root rot pathogens of the genera Heterobasidion and Armillaria both from the point of view of their economic impact but also on their role as disturbing agents affecting forest dynamics. Another aspect of interest is on the interaction between drought stress and pathogens like Diplodia sapinea, and how they contribute to tree mortality. Recently he has worked on pathogens of the genus Phytophthora in particular with their impact on alder stands near river ecosystems, but also as model organisms to study drivers of invasion such as global warming or intercontinental trade of infected plants. Jonàs Oliva did his PhD in UdL, and then spend nearly 10 years at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala (Sweden) working in Jan Stenlid's forest pathology group. He is now a "Ramón y Cajal" researcher.
