I started my PhD in February 2011. My PhD topic is the "Effect of understory vegetation on forest regeneration and response to disturbance".
I will be looking at the way the understory vegetation affects the regeneration of four coniferous tree species (pine, spruce, larch and contorta pine), with focus on the mosses and dwarf-shrubs. Both positive and negative effects are of interest. When is there a window of opportunity for the regeneration of the previous named tree species?
The first experiment is planning to be situated along a fire disturbance gradient in northern Sweden.
We will also expand the research to production forests.
Previously I have been working for the Swedish Forest Agency.
My supervirsor is Marie-Charlotte Nilsson Hegethorn.
Co-supervisors are David Wardle and Michael Gundale.
