Dieback of the Amazon rainforest giants? Can tree hydraulics provide a clue?
Amazon tropical rainforests are increasingly impacted by el-Nino droughts. During those severe drought events, it is especially the large canopy trees that are dying. It is thought that the water relationships (i.e. hydraulics) of ...

Effects of extreme drought on tree species – selecting species and provenances under climate change
Also possible as MSc internship (24 credtis)/ BSc thesis (mainly literature study) The extreme 2018 drought was one of the most severe and long-lasting summer droughts ever recorded. Several tree species showed high mortality  ...

Tree community assembly along topographic gradients in the Amazon. Linking species traits with forest plots and species distribution
Tropical rainforests in the Amazon are characterized by a steep topography. Crests , slopes and valley bottoms differ markedly in water availability, nutrient availability, and species composition. The questions is what traits all ...

Restoration of mined areas in the Brazilian Amazon
Within a conservation area in the southern Brazilian Amazon there has been large tin mining activity in the past. Nowadays the areas impacted by mining are been restored and monitored annually for vegetation development and soil i ...

Forest dynamics in oak- beech forest
The Netherlands contain a significant proportion of Atlantic beech forest ecosystems. On the Veluwe, a number of old forest complexes contain well-developed forest ecosystems of this type in late-successional communities. The comm ...

How old is this tropical forest tree? (And how to estimate that?)
There’s a lot of discussion about the (maximum) ages of trees in tropical forests. Some scientists consider that thousand-year old trees are rather common, while others believe this is unlikely. Apart from this fundamental questio ...

What are the effects of grazing and burning on the vegetation and an endemic macaw in a Bolivian savanna?
The Blue-throated Macaw (Ara glaucogularis) is an endemic and endangered bird species. It inhabits palm forest islands that are scattered over the savanna in Beni, Bolivia. The savannas of Beni are inundated each year, and these p ...

Why is the tree species composition in the Amazon changing? A functional trait approach
Permanent sample plots in the Amazon show that there is a directional change in tree species composition. The question is who are the winners (increasing in abundance), who are the loosers (decreasing in abundance), and why? Is it ...
