Welcome to the Plant Ecology Modelling Group

We are a research group studying plant ecophysiology and the ways plant adapt to global change through process based vegetation models. We combine ecological biogeochemical knowledge to create better predictions of the Earth’s future.

We are part of the Discipline of Botany in the School of Natural Sciences at Trinity College Dublin. We are a vibrant and international team and take pride in inclusivity and diversity.
