I am currently studying responses of alpine treeline vegetation to simulated environmental change. Some of the topics I am investigating are:
- Growth limitations of trees at the alpine treeline: responses to carbon dioxide enrichment and soil warming.
- Responses of treeline dwarf shrubs to environmental change (growth, phenology, reproductive ecology).
- Impacts of elevated CO2 and soil warming on the freezing sensitivity of alpine treeline plants.
