Current projects

The ForeSight project: Predicting and monitoring drought-linked forest growth decline across Europe In this project we are developing new approaches to assessing, predicting and monitoring impacts of drought on forests in Europe

Understanding the structure, function and persistence of relict populations under climate change In this work, we are exploring the structure and function of range edge populations to test predictions that such populations might, in some cases, show higher persistence as the climate warms than those in more central areas of a species range.

Understanding the and predicting changing mountain forest distribution in Taiwan In this research programme we are seeking to understand how rapid changes in climate are impacting the distribution and function of mountain forests and the implications for carbon stocks at high altitude.
