Research interests

The functional composition of plant and animal societies is a key element for the delivery of Ecosystem Services. These are a concept to describe the benefits of humans from nature. Ecosystem Services have the potential as a framework to integrate all nature dependent human actions into a common evaluation scheme. This will be tested in my thesis on the historical land use changes undergone in Saxony Anhalt from the 1950s until today. Thereby policy decisions can be evaluated and optimization possibilities for the future can be highlighted.
