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 ...

Stem cell development compared across species: from cambium to xylem and phloem cells
Xylem and phloem cell development in plant stems has been described in qualitative sense, but comparative and quantitative analyses that are required for understanding differences in stem development and functioning across plant s ...

Anatomical traits regulate cavitation resistance in conifer tree species
Conifers (co-)dominate in many forests in different climates across the temperate zone, with some species better adapted to cold or dry habitats than others. Their wood anatomical traits (i.e., extremely narrow tracheid size and  ...

How do woody species differ in hydraulic architecture?
Hydraulic architecture refers to form characteristics of plants that characterize the water relationships. The Huber value, named after a German researcher active in the 20/30-ties of the 20th century, is the ratio between the sap ...

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 ...

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  ...

How does environment and climate (change) affect distribution of Boswellia (Frankincense) tree species?
The general problem: The iconic frankincense is a resin from Boswellia trees (a genus with ca 24 species) that grow in dry areas in the Sahel, Horn of Africa, Southern Arabian peninsula and India. The resin is used as incense, fo ...

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 ...

Comparative conifer ecology
Several topics on comparative conifer ecology, such as: How do 30 conifer species cope with drought? Reproductive strategies of conifer species? How do native and exotic conifers impact soils? For more information cont ...

Ecological boundaries for sustainable biomass harvest in production forests
Background The European Union is promoting greater mobilisation of existing timber reserves in order to exploit the full potential of biomass (Directive 2009/28/EC) both for energy and industrial applications. This leads to an in ...
