Dr. Preece is a researcher at Institut de Recerca i Tecnologia Agroalimentàries. Her research focuses on how to increase carbon sequestration in agricultural soils. She is a specialist in plant-soil interactions, particularly in response to global change, and the characteristics of roots in wild relatives of crops. She is collaborating with the EDM in the framework of the ERC-StG STOIKOS to study the differences in elemental composition of crop wild relatives and modern crops.
Jordi Corbera is a scientific illustrator and independent naturalist at Institució Catalana d’Història Natural. He is collaborating with the EDM in the framework of the Projecte Fonts, Projecte Quimica Naturalista, Projecte Gat Fer and the project ERC-StG STOIKOS.
