Josephine Haase's work focuses on the effects of temperate tree diversity and composition for ecosystem functioning. Her research is performed on experimental tree diversity experiments within the scope of the EU-funded BACCARA project.
Chue Poh focuses on developing methods for above-ground biomass (AGB) estimation, using high resolution Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), WorldView-2 imaging as well as low-cost aerial photographs from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
Smitha's research explores the pollination services that Sacred Grove forests provide to the surrounding coffee plantations and seeks to integrate agricultural management at a landscape scale with conservation through implicit recognition of natural services provided by indigenous habitat remnants.
