Understanding vegetation successions in a thawing tundra
Shrub expansion is widely observed in the Arctic and is related to climate warming. However, at our field site in Siberian tundra we observe local drowning of low shrub species Betula nana (dwarf birch). Permafrost thawing can tri ...

Fire and drought resistance of Jamaica’s forests; a long-term perspective
Climate change and human disturbances over the last millennia have shaped tropical forests into how we see them today. A better understanding of how tropical forests responded to these pressures in the past may help us understand  ...

Drought resistance of maple growing under contrasting site conditions in the Netherlands
Also possible as MSc internship Maple plays an important role in Dutch forestry due to its litter quality, but also the potential to use its wood for wood modification acetylation). Yet the question arises on how maple will per ...

Which oak to choose? Provenance selection for resilient forests
Also possible as MSc internship Oak is a key species in European forests. The ambition is to keep productive and drought resistant oaks in Dutch forests. To select plant material for future forests provenance trials have been e ...

How do Brazilian cerrado trees respond to droughts?
Increasing temperatures and drought stress may change the responses of tropical trees to climatic variability. In the dry woody vegetation of the cerrado biome in Brazil, these effects are expected to be strong because rainfall is ...

Litter production during secondary succession in tropical wet forest in Mexico
The general problem: During secondary succession after land abandonment in the wet tropics the vegetation recovers rapidly. With biomass building up, the productivity and the biomass cycling also increases. Generally with more  ...

High resolution tree growth responses to extreme drought events
Also possible as MSc internship High resolution tree growth measurements as conducted by dendrometers provide us to study tree responses to extreme climate factors, such as drought, with high temporal resolution. In the Netherl ...

Resilience of old-growth tropical dry forests: assessment and drivers
Also possible as MSc internship Severe droughts associated to El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events are known to have a devastating effect on tropical forest ecosystems in the Americas. High biodiversity is thought to prod ...

How can we trace the origin of tropical timber? A quantitative literature review
Also possible as MSc internship Illegal timber trade is a huge environmental problem, and is often associated with organized crime and deforestation. Legislation to fight illegal timber trade exist, but their enforcement requi ...

Reforesting tropical landscapes: a large-scale demographic study using satellite images in Panama
Also possible as internship. Secondary forest growth has the potential to restore ecosystem functions to millions of hectares of degraded land. As a consequence, forest restoration at the landscape scale has become a conservati ...
