INVESTIGATING CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES OF CHANGES IN BIODIVERSITY

We are investigating the causes and consequences of changes in biodiversity. We study how biodiversity and ecosystem functioning respond to global environmental changes, such as land use changes, nutrient enrichment, exotic species introductions, and climate extremes. We also study the responses of ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services to changes in biodiversity.

RESEARCH QUESTIONS

  • How do global environmental changes impact biodiversity and ecosystems?
  • How do changes in biodiversity influence ecosystems?
  • How do species coexist in diverse communities?
