Is freezing tolerance the main determinant of species' altitudinal limits?
This thesis will be carried out within the framework of a PhD research entitled: Climatic effects on plant species distribution along an altitudinal gradient in Nepal. It is becoming more and more evident that climate change is  ...

What is the biomass of tropical rainforest trees?
Tropical forests store a quarter of all terrestrial biomass and play therefore an important role in the global carbon cycle. Much of the biomass in stored in giant emergent trees. Yet, estimations of carbon storage remain highly u ...

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  ...

Drought resistance of chestnut growing in Dutch forests
Also possible as MSc internship Chestnut (Castanea sativa) is discussed as interesting species if it comes to making Dutch forest more resilient to climate change. By applying tree-ring research it becomes possible to check the ...

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  ...

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 ...

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 ...

Understanding nutrient cycling in cocoa production systems in Ivory Coast ( Theobroma cacao L. )
Cacao is the most important export crop in west African countries, with Ivory Coast and Ghana producing 70% of the world production, mostly in smallholder plantations. Realized yields however are much less than the potential value ...

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 ...
