We aim to make innovative contributions to the fundamental research field of Ecology and Evolution worldwide and bring new insights to issues of societal relevance, such as nature conservation, climate change, soil pollution and sustainable use of life-support functions. This ambition also guides and inspires our teaching program.
The Department of Ecological Science has four main research lines:
- Climate change and ecosystem functioning
- Plant-soil-microbe interactions
- Species interactions and evolutionary adaptation
- Stress ecology and ecological genomics
More information on our scientists, research, teaching and outreach can be found at our departmental website.
