EcolChange seminar – Kadri Koorem about biotic interactions in range-expanding plant species

Seminar of Department of Botany and Centre of Excellence EcolChange

Speaker: Kadri Koorem is postdoctoral researcher of Tartu University at NIOO-KNAW, The Netherlands.

Title of the talk: Biotic interactions of range-expanding plant species

Time: Thursday, 22. March 2017 at 15.15

Place: Tartu, Lai 40-218 (Vaga auditorium)



Current climate change has enabled many organisms to expand their range to higher altitudes and latitudes. While the movement of organisms like plants is relatively well recorded, much less is known how such process influences the interactions between plants and their biotic environment. I will show what we’ve learned about the interactions between range expanding plants, native plants, soil organisms and insects.
