Herzlich Wilkommen

... auf den Seiten unserer Arbeitsgruppe unter der Leitung von Prof. Dr. Katja Tielbörger! Hier sind Informationen zu unseren Forschungsschwerpunkten, unserer Lehre, unseren Mitarbeitern, Stellenangeboten und aktuellen Neuigkeiten zusammen gestellt. Frau Tielbörger ist gleichzeitig auch Direktorin des Botanischen Gartens.

Um uns kennen zu lernen bietet es sich an, zu einem unserer regelmäßigen Arbeitsgruppenseminare zu kommen. Hier werden in lockerer Runde die verschiedenen wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten vorgestellt und so ist ein guter Einblick in die verschiedenen Themenfelder möglich.

Viel Spaß beim Erkunden unserer Arbeitsgruppe!

BSc & MSc Theses opportunities

21.01.2019 ► Please find a list of theses opportunities in the Plant Ecology department, open for BSc and MSc candidates, starting in 2019/2020, on our updated website. 

Welcome Dr. Maria Májeková

01.12.2018 ► Maja, a plant ecologist from Slovakia has joined the plant ecology group as Senior Lecturer/ Assistant Professor. She will be involved in teaching the plant ecology as well as the biotic interaction, plant animal interaction courses.  Her research interests are the relationship between temporal stability, synchrony and plant strategies. She combines field work on semi-natural gradients with long-term field experiments and greenhouse experiments. Welcome!

Goodbye Dr. Michal Gruntman

Sadly, Michal is leaving the plant ecology group at the end of November 2018 after 8 years in Tübingen. Michal is off to her homeland Israel to take up a senior research and teaching position at the Ben Gurion University in Tel Aviv. This is an excellent career move for Michal and allows her to establish her own lab group. We will greatly miss a lovely colleague, teacher and student supervisor, we wish her all the very best and lots of success for the future!

PhD Defence: Eleanor Gibson-Forty

Eleanor Gibson-Forty has successfully defended her PhD project on 'Intraspecific variation in plant-animal interactions of the Brassicaceae family along a steep rainfall gradient in the Eastern Mediterranean Basin'. Congratulations, Ellie!

Publication: Stress tolerance determines facilitative plant responses

Plant–plant interactions are reciprocal: they include effects on but also responses to direct neighbours. However, how exactly specific traits determine effect and response in facilitative interactions has not been studied experimentally. This new work by Ruichang Zhang and Katja Tielbörger from the Plant Ecology group (New Phytologist) reveals how between-plant interactions vary with salt tolerance traits along a salinity stress gradient.
