Research Interests: 

In our research lab, we are intrigued by causes of biological diversity, ecosystem functioning, and nutrient dynamics. We strive to contribute to societal decision-making process in ways to assure ecological sustainability of natural and managed ecosystems in a changing environment.

Large spatial and long temporal scales are characteristics of our research. Most of research projects are implemented in boreal and northern temperate forest ecosystems. In the meantime, we are interested in terrestrial ecosystem processes at the globe scale by critically evaluating published literature and collaborating with researchers in other countries.
