Research interests

  • Epiphyte assemblages of tropical forests and anthropogenic landscapes
  • Microclimatic influences on epiphyte assemblages
  • Influences of anthropogenic landscape changes on epiphyte assemblages

  • Mechanical effect of wind on epiphytes: how large is the force on epiphytes when exposed to wind?
  • What force is needed to detach an epiphyte from it's substrate?
