Dumitrița DASCĂLU

Biologist Dumitriţa Dascălu, graduate of the Faculty of Biology and Geology, Biology specialization, UBB Cluj – Napoca and master in “Systemic Ecology and Biodiversity Conservation” within the same institute. She is a PhD student of the Faculty of Agriculture, USAMV Cluj – Napoca, the research field in agronomy, specialization microbiology. The overall objective of the study underlying the PhD thesis is to assess the effects of sustainable agricultural practices on the functional diversity of soil microbial community and the processes in which it is involved, as clarifying the relations of mutual influence between agricultural practices and soil biodiversity is a priority for scientific research and thus for our project.
