MSc, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

Peatlands play an important role as carbon storages, but in addition, they offer numerous other beneficial ecosystem services. Still, a big part of peatlands has been drained. This has altered ecosystem functioning, especially greenhouse gas and carbon dynamics. In my doctoral research, I will develop a new method for peatland restoration, which aims to enhance the recovery of functional diversity of a peatland and limit methane emissions. Sphagnum translocation will play an important role in this method development.

Previously I have studied the communication between the tadpoles of the dyeing poison frog (Dendrobates tinctorius) and how lupine (Lupinus polyphyllus) affects beetle species diversity and a number of beetles living on the road verges.
