European forest resources: tree regeneration across Europe in relation to management and forest types
European forests are important for wood production, environmental services, carbon sequestration etc. They fulfil many functions for the European society. Their dynamics are steered by both climate and forest management. Especiall ...

Tropical wood density unraveled: effects of species, climate and tree size
Tropical forests store vast amounts of carbon and thus play an crucial role in the global carbon cycle. Changes in the carbon sequestration of tropical forests will thus have strong consequences for future climate: tropical forest ...

Understanding environmental effects on delta 13C and growth of tropical trees
Stable isotopes are variations of the same element in the number of neutrons in the core. They are chemically the same but differ in mass and therefore some biological processes discriminate against one of them. Carbon isotopes in ...

Dieback of the Amazon rainforest giants? Can tree hydraulics provide a clue?
Amazon tropical rainforests are increasingly impacted by el-Nino droughts. During those severe drought events, it is especially the large canopy trees that are dying. It is thought that the water relationships (i.e. hydraulics) of ...

Finding your niche within a tropical forest; the role of traits for species distribution and abundance
Across broad spatial scales (e.g. continents), we see large variation in species composition, abundance and diversity due to differences in climate and soil type. However, at finer spatial scales (e.g. within one valley) this vari ...

Effects of extreme drought on tree species – selecting species and provenances under climate change
Also possible as MSc internship (24 credtis)/ BSc thesis (mainly literature study) The extreme 2018 drought was one of the most severe and long-lasting summer droughts ever recorded. Several tree species showed high mortality  ...

Tree community assembly along topographic gradients in the Amazon. Linking species traits with forest plots and species distribution
Tropical rainforests in the Amazon are characterized by a steep topography. Crests , slopes and valley bottoms differ markedly in water availability, nutrient availability, and species composition. The questions is what traits all ...

Forest dynamics in oak- beech forest
The Netherlands contain a significant proportion of Atlantic beech forest ecosystems. On the Veluwe, a number of old forest complexes contain well-developed forest ecosystems of this type in late-successional communities. The comm ...

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 ...

Why is the tree species composition in the Amazon changing? A functional trait approach
Permanent sample plots in the Amazon show that there is a directional change in tree species composition. The question is who are the winners (increasing in abundance), who are the loosers (decreasing in abundance), and why? Is it ...
