mission statement

Our goal is to understand the processes that drive biodiversity patterns and their spatio-temporal dynamics across scales, the assembly of ecological communities, the factors that determine the value of landscapes for ecosystem service provision

By observing and predicting the long-term effects of global change and of socio-economic activities (including climate and landuse change, landscape fragmentation and habitat loss, biological invasions) on biodiversity patterns, we want to provide the knowledge basis for sound conservation management and ecological restoration.
