Me and my group work in the area of forest ecology and silviculture with the foci ecohydrology and applied vegetation ecology. The methods include field surveys and inventories, experiments including the application of stable isotope techniques, and model applications. We study reforestations, mixed forests and in particular agroforestry systems. We aim at enhancing our understanding of ecological basics of poly-cultures in particular resource use and partitioning, also with the idea of a future better management of such land use systems.
