Research at the Biodiversity Unit

Research at Biodiversity Unit focuses broadly on biodiversity and ecosystem functions and –services.

The research infrastructure including the botanical garden and two field stations, long-term experiments and environmental monitoring datasets and scientific collections provides an excellent support for multidisciplinary research on topical questions such as climate change, biodiversity crisis, and the sustainable use and protection of natural resources in both natural and man-made environments.

In addition to its own research, the Biodiversity Unit promotes multidisciplinary research at the university and serves as a showcase for public outreach.
