Research Interests

I am fascinated by plant species diversity. My research is focussing on mechanisms and processes that maintain species coexistence, with a fondness for the “plant’s eye-view”. This includes: competition, seed dispersal, competition-colonisation trade-off, biodiversity effects and plant growth models
