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 ...

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 ...
