Description of scientific projects
The current themes of my research in plant and ecosystem ecology are: 1) the effect of land use and land cover change on the atmosphere/climate system, 2) the effect of global change on plant-atmosphere interactions, and 3) ecosystem function in managed and human-dominated ecosystems, including explicit links between decision-making, biophysical processes, and ecosystem services.
