The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences is looking for a PhD candidate for an international project (covering Sweden, Spain and the USA) aiming to discover stand development pathways that lead to oak dominance in mixed broadleaf stands of ranging site productivities. This will be accomplished with well-replicated field studies designed to define relationships between stand structure, light availability and growth of oak regeneration.
