I am especially interested in the effects of land use and biodiversity on plant individuals and populations. To study these topics I use growth-ring analyses. It allows assessing age-structures of individuals, populations and communities. I like to use this method, because for many species data about age is not available and therefore it unravels an understudied facet of plant population and community dynamics.
