The research group Ecology at the Department of Environmental Sciences invites applications for a PhD position in alpine plant ecology.
Climate change is causing major changes in the physical environment, and these changes may in turn fundamentally alter the functioning of ecosystems. Mountain ecosystems are especially affected as they are warming faster than the global average. This is especially critical as they are comparatively pristine environments, are home to about a quarter of the terrestrial biodiversity and provide important services to humans.
Most alpine plant species are shifting their ranges upslope to track the climatic conditions they are adapted to, resulting in increases of species richness on mountain summits. However, there is considerable variation in the direction, magnitude and timing of responses of individual species, communities and regions that cannot be solely explained by recent temperature trends.
