Vegetation Ecology & Conservation Biology
Our working group Vegetation Ecology and Conservation Biology is interested in the relationships between vegetation and the environment, conducting research notably in the interface of basic and applied ecology. We focus on the fields of classical vegetation ecology, population biology of plants, invasion ecology and conservation biology. Members of the lab teach these subjects also in the Biology Bachelor programme and in the Master of Ecology.
Climate Change Is Endangering Biodiversity in Hedges
Northern and Western Europe are characterized by hedge landscapes. A Europe-wide study, in which the University of Bremen is involved, has investigated the effect of the climate and care on biodiversity in said hedges. The result: Climate change has an effect here too.
