Human activities increasingly alter earth system processes through modifications of environmental conditions and biodiversity. In this context, at the Chair of Landscape ecology, we study ecological processes in anthropogenic landscapes across a broad range of scales. Our main focus is on the processes that shape the identity and abundance of species within ecological communities. We work with a broad range of taxonomic groups (ranging from microbes to trees) in a variety of ecosystem types including wetlands, forests, agricultural areas, and mountains. Our research themes include biogeography, urbanization, ecosystem restoration, bioindication, and the impact of agriculture on biodiversity and ecosystem functions.

Our work is quantitative and combines theoretical, experimental and field approaches. Our general aim is to improve our understanding of biotic and abiotic processes in anthropogenic landscapes and their consequences for ecosystem structure and functions. Ultimately, our research contributes to develop solution to effectively mitigate the effect of human activities on the biosphere.
