Understanding environmental effects on delta 13C and growth of tropical trees
Stable isotopes are variations of the same element in the number of neutrons in the core. They are chemically the same but differ in mass and therefore some biological processes discriminate against one of them. Carbon isotopes in ...

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 ...

Individual increment functions for douglas fir
Kroondomein Het Loo (a large forest estate near Apeldoorn) and the FEM group recently established two marteloscopes in douglas fir stands. Marteloscopes are forests especially designed for doing exercises in forest management. All ...

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  ...

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  ...

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 ...

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 ...

Origin matters! Drought susceptibility of commercial Douglas Fir provenances
Can also be done as internship (24-27ects) Douglas fir is a relevant timber species in European forestry. It grows well and produces valuable timber. The challenge for foresters is to choose those Douglas fir provenances for pl ...

Drought resistance of chestnut growing in Dutch forests
Also possible as MSc internship Chestnut (Castanea sativa) is discussed as interesting species if it comes to making Dutch forest more resilient to climate change. By applying tree-ring research it becomes possible to check the ...

Wild service tree (Sorbus torminalis) - an interesting species for Dutch forests?
The Wild service tree (Torminalis glaberrima) is discussed as interesting species to be planted in Dutch forest, because it is known to be drought resistant. Yet, also other factors are relevant to select for this species to be in ...
