Tree vulnerability in the context of Assisted Migration
The main objective of my project is to understand how vulnerability factors affect seedlings' growth and survival in the context of an assisted migration experiment. Different tree species, three geographic provenances and a combination of silvicultural treatments are included in the analysis. More specifically, I want to understand how the manipulation of the microclimate and interspecific competition (overstory and understory treatments), herbivory (exclosures and no exclosures areas), and climate data affect leaf phenology response, browsing rate from large mammals and defence traits.
