Dynamic Macroecology

Head: Prof. Dr. Niklaus E. Zimmermann

 

Dynamic macroecology conducts ecological and biodiversity research over large spatial and long temporal extents, and specifically focusses on the temporal trends. Our group contributes to the foundation of dynamic macroecology by developing data, models and theories that explain the determinants and processes of species distributions, species diversity and their interactions with drivers from regional to global scales and from the Pleistocene to the Anthropocene. With our data, models and theoretical foundations we contribute to mitigate global change impacts on biodiversity (taxonomic, phylogenetic, functional) and on ecosystems, to ecological restoration, and to better planning and management of biodiversity, and to biodiversity conservation.
