As a recent Tansley Medal winner, Kai gave an invited talk for New Phytologist Now.
Understanding forest dynamics by integrating age and environmental change
Held on 9th December 2021.
Kai is a global ecologist and quantitative environmental whose work integrates ecological theory with advanced statistical and computing science tools to study the impact of global change on plants. His current research focuses on plant and soil responses to environmental change, both spatially and temporally. Kai’s Tansley insight is entitled ‘Understanding forest dynamics by integrating age and environmental change’ and it explores how global forest-age data and hierarchical models can help us better understand forest dynamics. Kai was joined by New Phytologist Editors Alistair Hetherington and Amy Austin.
