Johannes Cunow

A terrestrial ecologist working on belowground response to grazing and snow cover changes. I look at spatial & temporal dynamics of roots and the biochemical linkage.

Works at

KBC-huset, Linnaeus väg 6, Umeå Umeå universitet, 901 87 Umeå

I engage with the plasticity of plants in a changing environment, feedback cycles and their contribution to ecosystem functioning. I am especially interested in understanding the interaction between simultaneous drivers determining ecosystem processes and the temporal dependency mediated by plants. To do so, I have been using climate manipulation experiments with a close tie to land-use interaction.

Currently, I am working on a belowground perspective towards changes in snow cover and grazing in boreal ecosystems. My research aims at understanding spatial-temporal dynamics of roots and how it feeds back to biochemical pulse, depletion and retention capacity.
