Litter fall during secondary succession in tropical wet forest
MSc thesis During secondary succession after land abandonment in the wet tropics the vegetation recovers rapidly. With biomass building up, the productivity and the biomass cycling also increases. Generally with more standing b ...

Resilience of old-growth tropical dry forests: assessment and drivers
Also possible as MSc internship Severe droughts associated to El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events are known to have a devastating effect on tropical forest ecosystems in the Americas. High biodiversity is thought to prod ...

Reforesting tropical landscapes: a large-scale demographic study using satellite images in Panama
Also possible as internship. Secondary forest growth has the potential to restore ecosystem functions to millions of hectares of degraded land. As a consequence, forest restoration at the landscape scale has become a conservati ...

Sustainable forest management in the Netherlands, how does management influence nutrient cycling and forest regrowth?
Sustainable forest management is a key challenge for the production forests on the poor sandy soils in the Netherlands. Already for a couple of decades these forests are subject to high environmental pressure related to anthropoge ...

Land-use dynamics and ecosystem services in an agro-forest frontier in Mexico
This Msc thesis is part of the FOREFRONT program which focuses on agro-forest frontier areas. Agro-forest frontiers are the particularly dynamic borders between forested and agricultural land. The program aims is to link the lands ...

Forest succession and restoration
What? Secondary forests (SF) recover naturally after agricultural use. 25% of all tropical forests are SF. Why? SF are ideal to study the ecology of succession. SF are important for biodiversity conservation, carbon and water cy ...
