The wonderful architecture of leaf veins and their role for plant hydraulics
Leaf veins provide not only structure to the leaves, but they are also the irrigation channels through which all water transport occurs. Plant species show an amazing variety in leaf vein architecture, which is not only esthetical ...

Origin matters! Drought susceptibility of commercial Douglas Fir provenances
Can also be done as internship (24-27ects) Douglas fir is a relevant timber species in European forestry. It grows well and produces valuable timber. The challenge for foresters is to choose those Douglas fir provenances for pl ...

Fine resolution growth responses of Dutch tree species after droughts
Climate change is expected to result in more frequent and intense summer droughts in NW Europe. This may have a large impact on forests where each tree species may respond differently to such a changing environment. Summer drough ...

What is the biomass of tropical rainforest trees?
Tropical forests store a quarter of all terrestrial biomass and play therefore an important role in the global carbon cycle. Much of the biomass in stored in giant emergent trees. Yet, estimations of carbon storage remain highly u ...
