Our research addresses fundamental questions of biodiversity in a changing world and integrates species’ traits, physiological tradeoffs, and coexistence mechanisms. We develop and test theory but also apply theory to predict the impacts of environmental change on biodiversity. Research projects broadly address three integrated Research Areas:

Our research is within the UFZ Thematic Area Ecosystems of the Future, and the Integrated Projects Emerging Ecosystems and Aquatic Ecosystems
