Welcome to the webpage rootecology.de
I am a botanist studying plant ecophysiology: water and nutrient uptake under salinity and drought, plasticity of architecture, morphology and physiology under competition and stress, and plant and ecosystem carbon fluxes (with an emphasis on root systems and specialized root segments w/o mycorrhiza and disturbance effects). I work in both agricultural and forest production systems. I develop and advertise advanced approaches and methodologies which could enhance knowledge of "the hidden half".
