Dr. Yann Vitasse has studied biology and plant ecology at the University of Bordeaux (France) where he obtained his PhD in 2009. His PhD research focused mainly on the impact of climate change on tree seasonality. From 2010 to 2014, he worked at the University of Basel (Switzerland) as postdoc within a European project led by Prof. Christian Körner that aimed to provide a functional explanation of the upper elevational limits of tree species. From 2015 to 2016, he worked at the SLF in Davos (Switzerland) on the consequences of rising temperatures and snow reduction for alpine vegetation. In 2017, He worked at the university of Neuchâtel (Switzerland) on different projects related to spring frosts and forest ability to face future climate.
