NamTip – Understanding and Managing Desertification Tipping Points in Dryland Social-Ecological Systems – A Namibian Perspective
The inter- and transdisciplinary NamTip project aims to understand the social-ecological background when a semi-arid grassland ecosystem shifts towards a desertified state. I focus on functional plant ecology and the comparative analysis of desertification tipping points in Namibian rangelands.
SEBAS – SEnsing Biodiversity Across Scales (SEBAS). Land-use effects on the biodiversity-ecosystem functioning (BEF) and the biodiversity-ecosystem service (BES) relationship in central European grasslands
Within this project, I focus on plant trait analysis and functional diversity across a land use gradient.
