Vegetation Ecology Research Group

Vegetation is a central component of nearly any ecosystem. Thus, it plays a central role in nature conservation, environmental planning and land management. The species composition at a site allows inferring the prevailing environmental conditions, which makes vegetation an important ecological indicator that can be assessed relatively easily. The Vegetation Ecology Research Group conducts research in various habitats in Switzerland and internationally. The methods applied range from classical field botany and phytosociology to modern statistical methods and ecoinformatics.
