Jacob Johansson

Jacob Johansson developed eco-evolutionary models for explaining fundamental patterns of variation in plant community structures.

The project was part of an international collaborative effort to create a new generation of evolutionarily informed vegetation models for predicting responses to global climatic trends.

Jacob Johansson received his PhD in Biology (2008) from Lund University, Sweden.
