Seminar of Department of Botany and Centre of Excellence EcolChange
Speaker: Riin Tamme is researcher in the team of macroecology at the Department of Botany.
Title of the talk: Global patterns in plant traits
Time: Thursday, 19. April 2017 at 15.15
Place: Tartu, Lai 40-218 (Vaga auditorium)
Plant traits vary hugely across the world, but it’s only recently that plant trait research has moved from local and regional scale to global scale. The growing availability of standardised plant trait datasets from different regions has helped us to unravel how plant traits really vary globally and what are the underlying factors behind these patterns. Knowledge of these global patterns in plant form and function can then give further insights into the biogeography of species richness as well.
