We are the Ecology & Macroecology group and are broadly interested in patterns and drivers of biodiversity dynamics under global change. Our work combines approaches from macroecology, conservation biogeography, movement ecology and modelling to improve our mechanistic understanding and predictability of spatiotemporal biodiversity patterns across scales. Most of our work focusses on terrestrial ecosystems, and on plants and birds. Yet, our concepts and methods are also applicable to other systems.
Focal topics include:
