Research Group Plants and Ecosystems, University of Antwerp, Belgium

Jonas is a biogeography enthusiast based in Antwerp, yet working on global questions.

Collaboration statement

I play a leading role in two international networks with ties to plant traits: MIREN, the Mountain Invasion Research Network ( and SoilTemp, a global database of soil temperature time series ( I can thus contribute expertise on the broader biogeographical patterns in plant traits. My geographical focus lies on mountain environments, where I study how local climate and land use shape these plant traits. Always looking for: in-situ measured soil temperatures linked to trait observations to feed in to the SoilTemp database.
