Walking the line between people and nature

About us

The Group of Agro-ecological Modeling investigates the effects of changes in land use and landscape structure on biodiversity, ecosystem functions and services. For this purpose, we combine a wide range of methods such as field studies, ecological and biogeographical modeling, remote sensing, applied (geo)statistics and Machine/Deep Learning. Our research aims at a better understanding and improved modeling of functional relationships in landscapes, but is also closely related to applied questions of resource management and nature conservation.
