Dynamics of forest islands in a Bolivian savanna, and regeneration of the Motcu palm, a key resource for an endemic maca
150 years of extensive cattle ranching, grassland burning by farmers and deforestation have altered the state of the endangered Beni savanna ecoregion. Barba Azul Nature Reserve (11.000 ha) is the only reserve protecting this thre ...

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  ...

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  ...

Litter production during secondary succession in tropical wet forest in Mexico
The general problem: 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  ...

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

How did the megafaunal collapse in South America affect tree species composition?
Also possible as Internship At the end of the Pleistocene, around 12,000 y ago, many large animal species went extinct in South America. Although the causes of this big extinction event remain debated, it likely had great cons ...

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 ...

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 ...
