TreeWatch.net: understanding water and carbon dynamics in trees in a changing European climate (4-year research project) (https://treewatch.net) TreeWatch.net is a pioneering tree water and carbon monitoring network, in which high quality measurements of sap flow, stem diameter variation, stem water content and stem CO2 efflux will be collected in individual beech trees along north-south trajectories in Europe. The resulting unique dataset will be used to parameterize in real-time a mechanistic tree model to understand differences in growth, tree hydraulic responses and respiration to temperature and drought along trajectories through Europe from underlying water and carbon relationships.
The candidate will work at the Laboratory of Plant Ecology (Department of Plants and Crops, Faculty of Bioscience Engineering, Ghent University) under the supervision of Prof. Kathy Steppe and Dr. Roberto Salomón. The project is at the core of the lab’s mission: http://www.plantecology.ugent.be
Tentative starting date: September 2020.
