PhD candidate in the DFG funded project on

"Vertical stratification of plant-animal interactions

and their impacton pollination and seed dispersal

within a single Neotropical plant species"

Interactions between animals and plants are incredibly complex and diverse and they are pivotal for ecosystem functioning.
My research focuses on plant-animal interactions in subtropical and tropical ecosystems, namely pollination and seed dispersal. Using ecological and genetic approaches, I seek to assess their impact on gene flow and population structure of trees.

Also, I am interested in the forest canopy and the vertical stratification of resources and its consumers. Both features play an important role in maintaining biodiversity and in providing local and global ecosystem services.

My current research focuses on a neotropical liana species, Marcgravia longifolia, which is an ideal organism to study verticalstratification in tropical forests.It provides flowers and fruits across all forest strata and interacts with a large number of different nectarivores and frugivores. I seek to study these plant-animal interactions in detail, specifically regarding vertical stratification and the consequences on dispersal and gene flow. Therefore, I am collecting data on visitation rates, assemblages of nectarivores and frugivores, nectar and fruit quality and quantity, as well as on gene flow across forest strata.
