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 providing resources that help students to make the best use of their time before, during, and after college/University (see more under the “Schoolent” page). Under the “Wosotree” (Wise and Ancient Wisdom of Trees) page, I teach many useful life lessons/skills based on our current understanding of the functioning of trees.
