Franciska De Vries – personal profile

My research focusses on how plant communities and soil organisms interact to influence ecosystem functioning, with a focus on carbon and nitrogen cycling, and I am particularly interested in how these interactions change under global change. Currently, my main interest is what determines ecosystem stability under climate change. I have just started a 5 year BBSRC funded David Phillips Fellowship, with the aim of mechanistically elucidating the role of plant roots, via their root exudates, in ecosystem response to climate change.

I am also the founder and secretary of the British Ecological Society’s special interest group Plants, Soils, Ecosystem.
