Research is focused on patterns and processes in ecological populations and communities. Questions of main interest are related to community ecology and ecotoxicology to explore ...
... how species are distributed in space and time,
... which are the environmental keyfactors that drive these spatio-temporal dynamics,
... how patterns and processes emerge and interact across levels of biological organisation,
... how biodiversity, stability, information and complexity in ecosystems are connected,
... how self-organization facilitates the sustainable provision of ecosystem functions and services,
... how disturbance alters the dynamics of non-linear ecological networks,
... and how according cause-effect relationships can be assessed and modelled.
