S3.5 Plant Traits and Biochemical Cycles

S3.5 _ Plant traits and biogeochemical cycles. (Session Chairs: Jens Kattge, Susanne Tautenhahn, Michael Bahn, Han Wang and Oskar Franklin)

Plant traits extend the range of earth observations to the level of individual organisms, providing a link to ecosystem function and modeling in the context of rapid global changes. However, overcoming the differences in temporal and spatial scales between plant trait data and biogeochemical cycles remains a challenge.

This session will address the role of plant species, biodiversity and adaptation / acclimation / optimality and their connection to the biogeochemical cycles of water, carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus.

We welcome conceptual, observational, experimental and modeling approaches, and studies from the local to the global scale, including e.g. remote sensing observations and novel concepts and tools for the acquisition, management, analysis and synthesis of trait data.

Keywords: plant traits, biogeochemical cycles, functional biogeography, ecosystem modelling, plant adaptation / acclimation / optimality
