EEB Thursday Seminar: Explaining drivers of forest dynamics using trait-based approaches

Identifying the mechanisms that drive the structure and dynamics of communities is a major challenge in ecology. Plant traits are being increasingly used to address this challenge as they provide insights into the critical phenotype-environment link. Such information is necessary to apply to questions regarding how forests are responding to changing environments and the implications of those changes for the long-term persistence of forests. In this talk, I will discuss how the use of trait-based approaches and different modeling tools has allowed me to address questions regarding the drivers that shape forests, and species responses to habitat loss and fragmentation.
