Anna is working on the MONTANE-ACCLIM project which is asking ‘Can tropical Montane forest Acclimate to high temperatures?’. This project is studying 1200 native tropical montane forest trees in the Colombian Andes to study the thermal acclimation of key gas exchange processes and growth. Anna will be using path and meta-analytical techniques to try to explain the observed responses to temperature.
She previously completed her PhD at the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research Free Air CO2 Enrichment (BIFoR FACE) site where she examined the effect of elevated CO2 on the physiology, morphology and biochemistry of canopy-dominant mature Quercus trees.
Ph.D. Biological Sciences, University of Birmingham, UK – The effect of elevated CO2 on the ecophysiology of mature Quercus robur.
BSc. in Biological Sciences, University of Birmingham, UK
Anna is a plant ecophysiologist, interested in understanding how plants respond to climate change such as with increasing temperature and elevated CO2.
Anna's main areas of research include; carbon and water cycles, photosynthesis, transpiration, N and P cycles and plant responses to temperature and eCO2. Her current work focuses on the response of tropical montane forests to increasing temperatures.
MONTANE-ACCLIM -Can tropical Montane forest Acclimate to high temperatures?. We have planted 1200 native tropical montane forest trees in the Colombian Andes to study thermal acclimation of key gas exchange processes and growth.
