    Spatial Patterns of Global Treeline Ecotones

    In the alpine treeline ecotones, spatial patterns of the ecotone result from the processes driven by interacting biotic, abiotic, and anthropogenic factors. Similar spatial patterns may be driven by similar demographic processes, driven in turn by a limited set of potential environmental drivers. I am interested in recognising these spatial patterns using remote sensing and novel GIS-based methods, and describing the pattern-process relationships using statistical modelling.

    This project will contribute to the understanding of environmental and non-environmental drivers shaping the treeline ecotones globally, which would further help understand how changing environmental conditions will affect these sensitive high-elevation ecosystems in the future.
