Forest dynamics, biodiversity, climate change
We seek to understand how forests respond to global changes, including climate warming, forest management and urbanization. We study changes in forest communities over space and time by analyzing taxonomic and functional biodiversity as well as forest dynamics in order to understand their causes and consequences. Our research is driven by a strong desire to translate scientific findings into knowledge for conservation and management.
