Pioneer Mimosa and their life history in the dry tropics
Also possible as Internship. Old-growth tropical dry forests are continuously decreasing in area because of land use change. Slash-and-burn agriculture is a common practice used in the tropics to open areas for agriculture. The ...

The role of Neotropical primates on tropical forests
Plant animal interactions in Tropical forests. Understanding the effect that primates have on forest development and possible cascading effects. For this project we are interested in determining the effect that primates have on ...

Future ash trees - screening and selection of common ash for resistance to ash dieback
Ash dieback spreads across Europe and causes leaf loss, crown dieback and bark lesions in affected ash trees (Fraxinus excelsior). Once a tree is infected the disease is usually fatal. Results from Denmark indicate that ca 1% of a ...

Seed rain during secondary succession in tropical wet forest in Mexico
Secondary forests, regrowing after agricultural fields are abandoned, need input of seeds to develop. The seed rain (number and type of seeds) partly determine the possible growth trajectories of these forests. In this project, y ...

Comparing the ecology across European tree species
Project description: Foresters modify the structure and light environment of forests to manage the future development of the forest. Natural regeneration and competition between different species are important in current forest ma ...

Uncovering the anatomy of twisting pioneers
Also possible as Internship. In the tropical dry forest regions, secondary forests are becoming the frequent type of vegetation because of the loss of old-growth forest. The secondary forests reach their climax through differen ...

Growth responses to thinning in douglas fir
Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is one of the most productive tree species in European forests. Douglas fir stands are maintained by thinning until a point where regeneration is started and the old trees removed. Conventional  ...

Planting strategies for reforestation of dryland areas
Topic ia also suitable for more students, or as an Internship Reforestation of dryland areas is a major challenge the coming decade. If natural regeneration is not an option or too slow, planting may be necessary. Key questions ...

Assessing provisioning ecosystem services of new forests in the Atlantic Forest region of Brazil
Also possible as Internship Large-scale restoration in the Atlantic Forest region of Brazil needs novel upscaling from thousands to millions of hectares. The NewFor project is part of a large collaboration between Dutch and Bra ...

Seed removal and germination of pioneer and old-growth forest species in the tropical dry forest of Mexico
Also possible as Internship. In the tropical dry forest regions, secondary forests are becoming the frequent type of vegetation because of the loss of old-growth forest. In the tropical dry forest in Latin America, a common pra ...
