Research Interests Show content

Briefly, we study mechanisms linking primary producers, pollination, herbivory, predation and consumer community and food web dynamics, to get a broader understanding of the ecosystem. I mainly work in grassland ecosystems, as they offer a perfect model system for studying the interactions between plant- and consumer communities of different diversities or land-use regimes. As platform for parts of our research we use the large biodiversity experiment Jena Experiment and the Nutrient Network.
