- 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?
