What we do
We seek to understand which plants grow where, and why.
We study plant traits to understand how vegetation adapts to environmental changes.
We develop approaches for remotely sensing plant biodiversity to support conservation.
Postdoctoral fellows, students and employees
Team members trained since 2011
We conduct our field research mainly in Canada, Australia and Panama
Plant species in our spectranomics database
Scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals
We study the unique adaptations that plant species have evolved to survive and grow under contrasting environmental conditions.
We study the drivers of plant community composition and diversity across environmental gradients.
We study foliar spectral signatures of plant species under contrasting environments to understand their biological and ecological bases.
We develop new approaches to map plant spectral, functional, and taxonomic biodiversity to guide conservation.
