Scientific interest

Changes of biodiversity and ecosystem processes across environmental- and disturbance gradients
indicators for biodiversity and ecosystem processes
functional traits
functional diversity
community composition


Natural ecosystems are increasingly affected by humans. Intensification of land use and climate changes often lead to a loss of species and therefore of biodiversity. Decreasing biodiversity is often directly linked to changes of species interactions, food webs and important ecological processes and functions. Hence, biodiversity research is an important step towards a better understanding of the complex relationships within and among species and ecological processes and the functioning of ecosystems.

The aim of my PhD thesis is to develop an effective and functional integrative monitoring system which is able to indicate the status and changes of biodiversity and functional processes within ecosystems across large scales. Therefore I work in close collaboration with Christine Wallis. Such a monitoring system can facilitate the establishment of protected areas of ecologically important ecosystems. Tree species form the basis for biodiversity within forest ecosystems. Ants and birds play further key-roles for a vast number of ecosystem processes (e.g. predation of herbivorous arthropods) and therefore for the functioning of ecosystems.

My study area is within and around the Podocarpus National park in South Ecuador. It is one of the hotspots of biodiversity and is highly suited to study relationships within natural and degraded montane rainforest ecosystems. On plots at elevations from 1000 m to 3000 m a.s.l. I study changes of species compositions of trees, ants and birds, their taxonomic, functional and phylogenetic diversity and their influence on important ecosystem processes such as predation of herbivorous arthropods Thereby, remote sensing data will then be the basis to project the ecological findings across larger scales (Link zu Chrissi Wallis).
