Seed rain: reproductive strategies during secondary succession in wet tropical forest
MSc thesis During secondary succession after land abandonment in the wet tropics the vegetation recovers rapidly. Local forest recovery is determined by many factors but availability of seeds is crucial. This is largely determi ...

Detecting effects of CO2 rise on the drivers of tropical tree growth
MSc thesis Atmospheric CO2 rise increases photosynthesis and decreases water loss of trees, but it may also increase leaf temperatures beyond optimum for photosynthesis. Generally, CO2 rise is thought to increase tree growth, ...

Reproductive strategies of tropical tree species
MSc thesis / MSc internship / BSc thesis / BSc internship Tropical forests harbor a tremendous diversity of trees, which are able to coexist because of differences in their life history strategies. Tree species are engaged in a ...

Does shade tolerance explain the distribution of wet and dry tropical tree species?
MSc thesis / MSc internship / BSc thesis / BSc internship Species distribution is determined by environmental filters that can determine what species can occur where. Shade and drought are thought to be the two most important e ...

Effects of climatic variability on tropical tree populations. How to scale up from tree growth to population viability?
MSc thesis Tree-ring analyses of tropical tree species have shown that years with low rainfall and high temperatures reduce stem growth and may also increase mortality. Climate change will likely increase the frequency and sev ...

Can logged tropical forests be good for climate? Estimating the effect of selective logging on forest carbon worldwide
MSc thesis Exploitation and use of tropical timber from natural forests may lead to net carbon sequestration in forest and products, and thus contribute to climate change mitigation. Within this product chain from forest to co ...

What do ontogenetic changes in wood density tell us about speciesí functional strategy?
MSc thesis / MSc internship A tree experiences strongly changing pressures during its lifetime. For example, protection from herbivores and other physical damage may be more important in early life stages, whereas support is i ...

Nutrient balances in tropical trees
MSc thesis / MSc internship Trees compete for the acquisition of nutrients. Nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus are crucial for plant growth and survival. Species can have different strategies to deal with (limiting) nut ...

How accurately can land cover metrics predict land use history?
Land use history is an important factor affecting the rates and dynamics of forest succession. Retrieving land use history information, however is often difficult and information can be incomplete. Landscape metrics, on the oth ...

Dynamics of dispersal mode in tree communities during forest restoration after mining
Within a conservation area in the southern Brazilian Amazon there has been large tin mining activity in the past. Since 10 years now, the areas impacted by mining are been restored and monitored annually for vegetation developm ...
