The BayCEER Colloquium is an interdisciplinary platform for students, scientists and interested citizens: Usually lectures are held weekly (during the lecture period) in the field of ecology and environmental sciences, which can then be discussed in plenary and in a relaxed atmosphere during the post-colloquium. You are welcome to bring your own lunch (brown bag lunch).

Drought, heat, and late frost – challenges in selecting tree species to adapt forests to climate change

Climate change thrives, and its devastating effects on forest ecosystems are becoming apparent at an alarming rate. One of the most pressing questions in forest science is how different tree species deal with rapidly changing climatic conditions. In particular, increasing frequency and intensity of hot droughts push natural and anthropogenic forest ecosystems towards their ecological limits. The European landscape consists of a mosaic of heavily managed forests silvicultural strategies, including the cultivation of new tree species, to adapt forests to the changing climate are needed urgently.  In the talk, I will present a trait–based approach that could assist species selection suitable to create forest stands with high resilience to climate change-driven weather extremes.
