Welcome to my site. I am Mohammed Armani, a Plant Ecologist, a Lecturer at KNUST, and a Postdoctoral Associate at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) and Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies (YIBS), Yale University.
I study how plants adapt to disturbance (such as fire, herbivory, and drought) and how plant functional traits (PFTs) influence species performance across tropical plant communities (forest, savanna, grasslands). I employ both field-based and common garden experimental approaches.
But I am not only about research! I aspire to make a difference by promoting and supporting the conservation and sustainable management of natural resources. I am an expert in environmental sustainability schemes and support businesses, local community groups, conservation organizations, and industry to manage environmental risks associated with their operations. Although a bit less romantic for scientists, I consider adoption of these sustainability schemes important for safeguarding the world’s natural capital for future generations.
