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 ...

Detecting effects of CO2 rise on the drivers of tropical tree growth
MSc thesis Atmospheric CO2 rise increases photosynthesis and decreases water loss of trees, but it may also increase leaf temperatures beyond optimum for photosynthesis. Generally, CO2 rise is thought to increase tree growth, ...

Effects of climatic variability on tropical tree populations. How to scale up from tree growth to population viability?
MSc thesis Tree-ring analyses of tropical tree species have shown that years with low rainfall and high temperatures reduce stem growth and may also increase mortality. Climate change will likely increase the frequency and sev ...
