Alexander Pinkwart
I am interested in the effects of management on the carbon and greenhouse gas exchange of forest and peatland ecosystems.


I investigate how restoration affects the greenhouse gas dynamics of drained peatland forests. My research focuses on the spatial variability of greenhouse gas fluxes (CO2 & CH4) using the closed-chamber method. The investigated management strategies entail alternative ditch management strategies for forest clear cuts as well as restoration of forested peatlands.
