Department of Ecology
At the Department of Ecology, we are conducting both empirical and theoretical research for sustainable forest and agricultural production and efficient biological conservation. Our research on populations, communities, and ecosystems forms the foundation for studying the influence of land use and climate change on animals, plants and soils. Solutions are sought that will improve greenhouse gas balances, preserve threatened species, benefit biological diversity and ecosystem services, sustainable wildlife management and control pests in forest and agricultural landscapes as well as in urban areas.
