Our research and teaching focuses on species and ecosystem responses to global change components. In observational and experimental studies in the field as well as in the lab we are examining how climate change, land-use change and pollution impact the diversity and composition of plant, animal and microbe communities and ecosystem functions. Our results provide a valuable basis to predict future ecological shifts and to inform conservation decisions to better protect and manage ecosystems.
