Institut für Evolution und Ökologie

Research in Evolution and Ecology

We are organismal evolutionary ecologists keen to understand adaptations and ecological dynamics in complex and changing environments, including the role of human impact on species, communities and ecosystems, and implications for conservation.

As field biologists we apply observational and experimental studies in natural environments in Germany and abroad. These are supplemented by laboratory experiments, theoretical modelling, or morphological, physiological and molecular analyses. Our research is also relevant for stakeholders in conservation and beyond.
