European forest resources: tree regeneration across Europe in relation to management and forest types
European forests are important for wood production, environmental services, carbon sequestration etc. They fulfil many functions for the European society. Their dynamics are steered by both climate and forest management. Especiall ...

Pioneer Mimosa and their life history in the dry tropics
Also possible as Internship. Old-growth tropical dry forests are continuously decreasing in area because of land use change. Slash-and-burn agriculture is a common practice used in the tropics to open areas for agriculture. The ...

Some trees grow faster than others: why?
Within populations of trees, there are substantial differences in the growth rates of equal-sized trees. Such growth differences between individuals can persist for several decades, and cause trees to strongly differ in age when t ...

The role of Neotropical primates on tropical forests
Plant animal interactions in Tropical forests. Understanding the effect that primates have on forest development and possible cascading effects. For this project we are interested in determining the effect that primates have on ...

Future ash trees - screening and selection of common ash for resistance to ash dieback
Ash dieback spreads across Europe and causes leaf loss, crown dieback and bark lesions in affected ash trees (Fraxinus excelsior). Once a tree is infected the disease is usually fatal. Results from Denmark indicate that ca 1% of a ...

Seed rain during secondary succession in tropical wet forest in Mexico
Secondary forests, regrowing after agricultural fields are abandoned, need input of seeds to develop. The seed rain (number and type of seeds) partly determine the possible growth trajectories of these forests. In this project, y ...

Do animals shape tree community assembly and functional composition of a Bolivian tropical rainforest?
Animals are an important component of tropical rain forests; through seed dispersal and predation, and the trampling and browsing of seedlings they can have a large filtering effect on what tree species are regeneration where. It  ...
