From ecosystems to landscapes (2013-2016)

Theme 4

We scale ecosystem processes measured at our field plots (Themes 2-3) up to landscape level and investigate feedback mechanisms between ecosystems and landscape elements.

Our field investigations involves measurments at manipulated plot (see Theme 3) and along landscape gradients (see Theme 1) and includes existing, long-term field experiments and monitoring efforts. In particular, we redefine the measurement campaigns by increasing the temporal and spatial resolution of our measurements.
