Dr. Constantin Zohner
Constantin’s research explores the dynamic relationship between plants and their environment, with a particular focus on addressing the challenges of climate change. His work centers around fundamental questions concerning ecosystem functioning, biodiversity, and the climate system. At the core of Constantin’s passion is the exploration of seasonal dynamics within ecosystems amidst a changing climate. Through his research, he seeks to contribute to a deeper understanding of how these ecosystems adapt and respond to environmental changes. By shedding light on the intricate interconnections between living organisms and their surroundings, he hopes to inspire actions that will safeguard and preserve our natural world for future generations.
