NamTip – Understanding and Managing Desertification Tipping Points in Dryland Social-Ecological Systems – A Namibian Perspective
The inter- and transdisciplinary NamTip project investigates the social-ecological impacts that occur when a semi-arid grassland ecosystem shifts towards a desertified state. Using a comparative approach, my focus is on assessing plant communities in relation to plant functional traits.
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.
In this project, I focus on plant functional traits and functional diversity in response to land use intensity.
