Research Interests

While I was trained as a plant biologist and ecologist, already during my PhD in France, I started to work on fungi and mycorrhiza, and after my coming to Germany I became a soil ecologist. Today, my main interest in research is to relate diversity of soil microorganisms (fungi and bacteria) to soil functioning, plant diversity and land use intensity in the context of the accelerated global change. A second field relates to the mechanisms behind the interplay between tree development and their multitrophic interactions.

I am grateful for the support of members of my department and their expertise in managing complex experiments and monitoring programs in the field, and also in using controlled cultivations models to study multitrophic interactions. Together, we acquired expertise in high trough put chemical, microbiological, physiological and molecular analyses and learned to use modern statistics, bioinformatics and modelling to integrate the results. We like to share our broad expertise with our students of the Leipzig University , where I am full professor. At the end this probably prompted my implication in diverse scientific committees and large projects, and finally to hold a Research Center on Integrative Biodiversity (iDiv) in our region.

I strongly believe in the Humboldt`s principle of freedom in research and teaching and in the mutual benefit of having many nationalities represented in my department.
