Current project

ValuGaps - Towards a comprehensive valuation of natural capital in Germany: Methods and approaches to deal with limited information and uncertainty

Research Interests

  • How does vegetation change under global change?
  • How much changes the provision of ecosystem services?
  • How can we best make use of observations and models to understand current and future patters?
  • How can science be more relevant for the society?
