MSc Biol. Vincent Hoeber

Research interests

  • plant ecophysiology and functional processes in forest ecosystems
  • effects of global change on biodiversity and intra- and interspecific interactions

During my PhD I investigate vascular epiphytes in temperate climates regarding the following questions:

  • Which functional traits support epiphytic occurrence of particular individuals of a species and particular species within a community?
  • How do biotic and abiotic factors influence opportunistic epiphytes?
