RESEARCH TOPICS


We seek to understand which plants grow where, and why. We study plant traits to understand how vegetation adapts to environmental changes. We develop approaches for remotely sensing plant biodiversity to support conservation.

Keywords: Plant functional ecology • Plant community and terrestrial ecosystem ecology • Spectranomics • Remote sensing of plant biodiversity • Plant-soil interactions
