Trait-based Approaches in Plant Ecology - Towards a Theory of Form and Function

Here is a talk I presented at the workshop ”Trait-based approaches to Ocean Life”, held in Copenhagen (Denmark) from 26-28 August 2013 at the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters (H.C. Andersens Boulevard 35, Copenhagen, Denmark). The workshop was organised by the Centre for Ocean Life. I was invited to give an overview of trait based approaches in plant ecology.
