Location: UFZ Leipzig, Germany

Target audience

Doctoral and postdoctoral researchers
Required: General knowledge about biodiversity research.

Contents

This course will embed ecological networks and species coexistence in well-known concepts how environmental parameters and anthropogenic drivers constrain biodiversity as well as how biodiversity affects ecosystem functioning. Participants will learn novel concepts in the area of biodiversity research that can be transferred to their research projects.

In several course elements, the participants will learn the mechanistic interplay between environmental variables, anthropogenic drivers, biodiversity, ecological networks and ecosystem functioning.

The lecturers are founders of the taproot Ecological Networks and Coexistence at iDiv.

Didactic aim

This course aims at introducing novel mechanistic concepts into biodiversity research. The participants will have time to adjust these concepts to their own research projects.
