Mission and Aims

The aim of Core 2 is to understand processes and patterns in ecosystems that are important to solve environmental problems. We study the fluxes of energy, water, carbon, nutrients and toxicants through these systems as well as the dynamics of populations, communities, landscapes and biomes. Physical-chemical pressures are linked to ecological and human health, covering important interrelated environmental issues, in particular global change, biodiversity loss, eutrophication, acidification, pollution, droughts and flooding. While we focus on natural sciences, interaction with social sciences is sought. In addition, we cooperate with governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations and private companies at various scales to facilitate implementation in society.

Research involves integrated lab, field and modelling studies, especially at regional scales.
