PhD project: "New insights on the diversity of resource-use strategies among coexisting Mediterranean shrubs species and possible utilizations of these plants as biofactories"

Research interests: The aim of the PhD project is to investigate Mediterranean wild species that could provide phytocomplexes that can be exploited for nutraceutical and industrial purposes. An objective is to set-up efficient extractive methods from their leaves and fruits, to perform a field-experiment for enhancing their production and to test their potential utilization. Antioxidant activities of the phytocomplexes obtained will be also evaluated. This study will provide important information on the potential utilization of these undervalued species as a source of phytocomplexes in different types of industries
