We work on a variety of questions related to the role of vegetation in the terrestrial carbon cycle. Our primary tool for this work is the LPJ-GUESS dynamic global vegetation model. LPJ-GUESS has a particularly advanced representation of forest demography, facilitating our work on the following topics:

LPJ-GUESS also has an advanced representation of anthropogenic land-uses such as croplands, pastures and managed forests, which supports work on:

We also take an active role in model inter-comparison exercises and work closely with colleagues at the large Free Air CO2 Enrichment (FACE) experiment at the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR), for which we are able to offer modelling support.
