We research the living environment
We are investigating the mechanisms of immediate and evolutionary response to environmental changes, not just what conditions endanger some species during change. To this end we combine ecology, evolution and ecological physiology.
As a result our research falls into three overlapping focal areas:
- Environmental change has a direct impact on individual organisms, which is notably studied in the fields of sensory ecology and animal physiology.
- These responses lead to changes at the level of populations and communities.
- Environmental change, however, not only results in immediate responses but also imparts variation in selection pressures, ultimately leading to evolutionary change.
The relevance and timeliness of this subject is overwhelmingly obvious: we are facing dramatic changes globally, with humans exerting an enormous environmental footprint on the planet.
