Academic Career and Research Areas

The scientific work of the Division of Forest Nutrition is concerned with all aspects of nutrient cycles in forest ecosystems on different scales. The studies range from microscale processes at the plant/soil interface (rhizosphere) to questions about the nutrient supply of trees and the influence of forest management on the quantity and quality of seepage water. Current research focuses on the effects of the increased use of biomass on the sustainability of forest management as well as on reforestation studies of disaster areas in the forests of the Calcareous Alps.
