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 ...

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 ...

The role of leaf venation in stomatal conductance responses to drought in lianas and trees in the canopy of two tropical forests
MSc thesis Lianas are increasing in many tropical forests with potential negative implications for forest biodiversity, productivity, carbon sequestration and climate change mitigation. We have measured large, adult individuals ...

Seed rain: reproductive strategies during secondary succession in wet tropical forest
MSc thesis During secondary succession after land abandonment in the wet tropics the vegetation recovers rapidly. Local forest recovery is determined by many factors but availability of seeds is crucial. This is largely determi ...

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, ...

Reproductive strategies of tropical tree species
MSc thesis / MSc internship / BSc thesis / BSc internship Tropical forests harbor a tremendous diversity of trees, which are able to coexist because of differences in their life history strategies. Tree species are engaged in a ...
