Functioning on Green Roofs
PhD/MSc positions available: Biodiversity/Ecosystem Functioning on Green
We are seeking highly motivated students for graduate work on the ecosystem
functioning of green roofs. Green roofs are constructed ecosystems that
provide a variety of services that are greatly affected by plant species
composition. We are examining green roofs from the perspective of
biodiversity/ecosystem functioning theory. Potential projects could include
prediction of green roof performance from plant traits, invasibility of roof
plant communities, coexistence mechanisms, and mechanisms of overyielding in
green roof ecosystem performance.
Ideal candidates will have a strong background in at least one of the
following or a related field: community ecology, ecosystem ecology, soil
ecology, plant ecophysiology. Applicants should be interested in ecological
theory and have strong quantitative skills.
