Research interests

In my research I am interested in functional responses of plants to environmental factors, with a main emphasis on ecological stoichiometry. These responses are measured as plant functional traits, which are organismal properties impacting its fitness via effects on growth, reproduction and survival. Today society as entered a stage in which the effects of anthropogenic forces transforming the ecology of our planet cannot be denied. These effects include changes in atmospheric composition and climate, hydrology, fire and landscape regimes. Humans have driven changes in net primary production-patterns, as well as in local and global biogeochemical cycles of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and other elements. Further effects comprise both the extinction of species and the introduction of species into new systems. Against this background, my main research-emphasis is to disentangle intrinsic determinations of functionally different plant organs from the effects of the abiotic environment. Understanding the responses of plants to the environment, their trait-trait relationships and ultimately their effects on ecosystem properties is crucial for understanding ecosystem processes per se and allows predictions of consequences of the changing environment we live in.

Today’s research on plant ecology is challenged from two sides: identify fundamental principles of plant strategies and understand plant behaviour in the framework of environmental change.  With my overall research interests I intend to tackle both challenges, through my work on plant functional traits. My research lines focus on different aspects of functional trait research, for example trait plasticity, ecological stoichiometry, trait-trait interactions and ecosystem functioning.
