  • Macroecology
    Deals with the distribution and spatiotemporal variation of life on Earth.
  • Island biogeography
    Investigates the spatial and temporal variation of the abiotic and biotic components of islands.
  • Species interactions
    Quantifies the structure, complexity and spatiotemporal variation of species interactions.
  • Biodiversity monitoring
    Aims at understanding how biodiversity and ecosystems are changing and how we can track biodiversity targets and goals.
  • Satellite remote sensing
    Deriving information on biodiversity, ecosystems, land use and land cover from satellite remote sensing.
  • LiDAR
    Uses Light Detection and Ranging technology to gain insights into biodiversity and ecosystems.
  • Geodiversity
    Quantifies the diversity of geological (rocks, minerals, fossils), geomorphological (landforms, topography, physical processes), soil and hydrological features.
