Plant Functional Traits Course in Norway

The 6th International Plant Functional Traits Course will be held in Aurland, Norway 23. July – 5. August 2022.

Trait-based ecology incorporates methods that enable powerful approaches to predict how climate and biotic interactions shape plant community dynamics and ecosystem functioning. This course will provide students with essential background knowledge and the practical field, lab, and computational skills needed for conducting their own research within trait-based ecology.

Plant Functional Traits Courses (PFTC) offer hands-on training in applications of plant functional trait ecology within a real-life field research project setting. During this 6th PFTC course, students will collect and explore plant functional trait data in the field and use trait-based approaches within global change research and ecosystem ecology. Following the course, students will have opportunities to participate in / lead publications using the data.

This course is led and organized by the Between the Fjords Lab, in collaboration with our colleagues at the University of Arizona and many other partners.
