How did the megafaunal collapse in South America affect tree species composition?
Also possible as Internship At the end of the Pleistocene, around 12,000 y ago, many large animal species went extinct in South America. Although the causes of this big extinction event remain debated, it likely had great cons ...

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 ...
