Research Topic: I am working on the DroughtNet project looking for early mechanisms of water stress detection

I am interested in drought effects on forest ecosystems. Currently, I am working on the DroughtNet project looking for early mechanisms of water stress detection. I am concerned about how climate change will increase drought effects and how early mechanisms of water stress detection can complement management plans, conservation strategies and ecological restoration processes.
