BSc thesis: Do threatened butterflies share the same traits in different regions of Europe?
In 2017 we published a paper examining the relation between species traits and the Red List Status of European butterflies (DOI 10.1007/s10841-017-9972-4). This identified main trait components of species vulnerability at a contin ...

MSc thesis: Does size matter? Linking sedimentation and plant performance to patch size of dune-forming grasses on Terschelling
In the Netherlands we need continuous sand nourishments to maintain our natural coastal defences. One of the open question is how we can further improve natural defences by stimulating new dune formation. For this we need more inf ...

Plant responses to Climate Change: Adaptation to drought, changes in temperature and rainfall
It is important to predict how plants respond to changes in their environment, especially with today’s unprecedented rate of climate change. Phenotypic responses to the environment may be determined not only by adaptive genetic e ...

MSc Thesis - Assessing the effect of climate change on vegetation patterns in Irish peatlands
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. Nevertheless, accelerated warming and drying due to cli ...

MSc thesis: The effects of organic and conventional management of meadows on wild bees and hoverflies
In an agricultural area near Olst (Overijssel, the Netherlands) an innovationproject 'Duizend Bloemen' (thousand flowers) is restoring biodiversity. For this project, we are interested in the effects of organic and conventional ma ...

De achteruitgang van oud bossoorten - en hoe krijgen we ze terug?
Veel Brabantse bossen liggen op voedselarme dekzandruggen, veelal voormalige heiden. Een rijke bodem ontbreekt vaak, alsmede boomsoorten die rijk strooisel vormen. Door verzuring en verarming zijn veel oude bossoorten waarschijnli ...

Forest – savanna species under stress: can we use functional traits to predict their performance?
The tropical forest-savanna ecotone is characterized by a gradual transition from closed canopy vegetation dominated by forest species to more open canopy conditions dominated by savanna species. This zone of transition (ZOT) harb ...

MSc thesis or internship: processes impacting vegetation establishment and development on a muddy salt marsh
IMARES is looking for master students who would like to participate in the Mud Motor project. The Mud Motor project looks at the possibility to use dredge sediment disposal to stimulate vertical and lateral salt marsh growth. To a ...

MSc thesis: Role of mushroom species and diversity in wood decay
Fungi are essential for closing nutrient cycles in all terrestrial ecosystems. In forests they are an important link in returning the nutrients and carbon locked in wood back to the ecosystems. Despite their importance in nutrient ...
