The genetic base of plant functional traits
The potential of plant functional traits to adapt genetically to changes in environmental conditions strongly depends on genetic factors such as heritability, number of loci affecting the trait and number of alleles per locus, as  ...

Climate effects on tree growth and mortality during secondary succession in a Mexican tropical wet forest
Secondary forests that are regrowing after agricultural fields are abandoned now comprise more than half of the tropical forest area, and are expected to expand in area in the future. They play an important role in the global carb ...

Hydraulic functional composition along succession in a Neotropical wet forest
Also available as internship. Droughts are thought to increase in frequency and intensity in the future. Yet, it is not well understood how tropical forests will respond to such environmental change. A particular emphasis has to  ...

Securing the future of the Amazon (or Brazil) nut by large-scale enrichment planting
Internship or thesis Amazon nuts are an important product that is generally harvested from natural tree populations in many parts of the Bolivian, Peruvian and Brazilian Amazon rain forest. It provides income to many people in  ...

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  ...

How do liana functional traits shape liana niches?
Lianas are important component of forest ecosystems, compete with trees, and have a large negative impact on tree diversity and performance, and carbon storage sequestration of the forest. However, little is known about how liana ...
