Species aggregation as a mechanism of coexistence
In natural communities, most species do not show a random distribution, but often occur in aggregated patches. Because plants only interacts with their direct neighbours, the local distribution is of fundamental importance. This h ...

Restoring flowering landscapes to bring back extinct bee species
About half of the 357 wild Dutch bee species are red-listed. Because bees are mobile organisms conservation management needs to target landscapes rather than fields or reserves. In the Geuldal, between Valkenburg and Gulpen, we ai ...

Herintroductie van Oud Bossoorten
De Brabantse bossen zijn relatief jong (<100 jr) en liggen op voedselarme dekzandruggen, veelal voormalige heiden. Een rijke bodem ontbreekt vaak, alsmede boomsoorten die rijk strooisel vormen. Door verzuring en verarming zijn vee ...

MSc thesis: Quantifying peatland resilience to climate based on unique historical dataset from Ireland
Peatlands are remarkably resilient to environmental changes: there are few ecosystems that are still around at the exact same location they originated in some 8000 years ago. One of the hypotheses that explains this resilience is  ...

MSc thesis restoration ecology: reintroducing peatmoss to speed up peatland restoration
Peatlands in the Netherlands have become rare. All large reserves are currently incorporated into the Nature 2000 framework and are being managed to stimulate the return of ecosystem engineers: peatmoss. The problem is that ta ...

The pollination of organic buckwheat, and the competition between honeybees and wild bees
Buckwheat is a crop of the old days, but is gaining more ground due to an increase of demand and the biodiversity benefits it has. It is flowering for 100 days, and very rich in nectar and pollen. In the current agricultural lands ...

Dangerous liaisons: harnessing disease to increase plant productivity
Soil-borne and root-colonizing fungi are important drivers of plant establishment, survival, and productivity. Their impact in plant development can be either positive (e.g. mycorrhizal fungi) or negative (pathogens), modifying ho ...

BSc thesis: Do lupin flowers deceive pollinators by promising nectar?
Several species of Lupin are being cultivated for their protein rich seeds which can serve as the basis for meat replacements. The flowers of the genus Lupinus are abundantly visited by bumblebees for the high quality pollen which ...

Can stress-induced soil microbial communities aid reintroduction of a rare forest understory species by increasing plant performance and stress resistance?
We are looking for an enthusiastic MSc student interested to study the potential of microbial inoculation for plant reintroductions within her/his MSc thesis. -------------------------------------------------------------------- ...
