"Stress-induced BVOC emissions from a swedish spruce forest" is the title of my PhD project. I am studying how different abiotic or biotic stress factors are affecting the BVOC (Biogenic volatile organic compound) emissions from mainly spruce trees. Bark beetle attacks and ozone effects are two stresses that are under analysis/planned to be analyzed.
I am collecting data from field measurements using dynamic chambers and adsorbent tubes, as well as measurments in various lab settings. I am also conducting the lab analysis of the collected data using an ATD-GC-MS system.
