Plant Ecology and Global Change
In the Plant Ecology and Global Change group, we are interested in how ecological communities respond to global change drivers. We seek to understand how intra- and interspecific diversity and rapid evolution separately or interactively shape plant community stability and functioning in changing and deteriorating environments. Using experiments in the field, in the glasshouse, and in the lab with both aquatic and terrestrial plants, we assess how biodiversity relates to the future of plant populations under global change. To do so, we're using an interdisciplinary approach in which we blend plant community ecology and population ecology with ecological genomics and remote sensing tools.
