Additional Information

Research Interests

The main focus of my research group is the functional basis of plant species distributions. Trade-offs between stress tolerance and performance contribute strongly to species distributions and may provide a more general basis for species range sizes and patterns of local distribution.We focus on forest ecosystems including tropical, temperate and boreal forests.
