Plant responses to environmental change: why are some plants more responsive than others?
Losses in biodiversity are driven by various processes of which changes in habitat fragmentation and environmental quality are the most prominent. Plant need to respond to these changes, through either evolutionary adaptation or p ...

MSc thesis: Stimulating flower-rich grassland on clay dikes
Dikes are often very varied, relatively nutrient-poor habitats, and can be home to typical grassland vegetation types (In Dutch for instance stroomdalgralsand or glanshaverhooiland) and can be great habitats for insects. Because o ...

Climate – vegetation – permafrost interactions in Arctic tundra
Shrub expansion is widely observed in the Arctic and is related to climate warming. We found that low shrubs, e.g. Betula nana, are important for protecting the underlying frozen ground (permafrost) against thawing. Thus, shrub ex ...

Differentiation in rooting depth: a coexistence mechanism?
When scientists try to explain the plant diversity of, for example, a species-rich grassland, the explanation often involves niche differentiation and complementarity. But what does this mean? And, most importantly, how does it wo ...
