Additional information
My research focus has been mainly on plant functional traits that I have been studying in different climatic zones, in the Tropics (Belize), temperate zone (Czehica and Chile), and in recent years mainly in the Arctics (Svalbard). I´ve studied traits from both ecological and physiological angle, and on both population and community levels.

Lisainfo
Minu teadustöö on keskendunud taimede funktsionaalsetele tunnustele, nii maapealsetele kui ka maaalustele. Nii nende ökoloogiale kui ka füsioloogiale. Olen uurinud nende varieerumist nii liikide sees kui vahel nii troopikas (Belize), parasvöötmes (Tšiili, Tšehhi) kui ka polaaraladel (Teravmäed). Mu uurimuste fookuses on olnud nii populatsioonid kui kooslused tervikuna, ning nende omavahelised üleminekud.
