Tim wants to improve our understanding of terrestrial ecosystems by studying how individual plants and plant communities function. He uses observations, experiments, simulations and theory to achieve this goal. Currently, he focuses on how and why trees grow wood, due to the huge importance of wood for many services provided by forest ecosystems, such as carbon sequestration and timber production. Beyond his current work Tim is also passionately interested in agricultural crops and landscapes.
