Member of the BayCEER Steering Committee

Head of Functional and Tropical Plant Ecology

Research interests:

  • linking ecophysiology, population and community ecology, and biogeography of plants
  • consequences of climate and land use change
  • importance of plant functional traits for the distribution of species and the composition of plant communities
