Jürgen Kreuzwieser received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Freiburg, Germany, in 1997, working on nitrogen and sulphur uptake by mycorrhizal and nonmycorrhizal trees. Subsequent studies dealt with biosphere–atmosphere exchange of trace gases (BVOC, methane, and nitrous oxide). After a research stay as Senior Researcher in the frame of an International Linkage Fellowship at the Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology (University of Western Australia), he was appointed as Senior Lecturer at the Chair of Tree Physiology, the University of Freiburg. His recent research interests are to understand plant internal and environmental control of volatile organic compound (VOC) emission from plants with special emphasis on the stress factors flooding and drought. This also includes more general aspects of plant carbon metabolism. Further interests are on the ecological impact of bioenergy plantations.
