Research Unit of Biodiversity

We study the ecology, evolution, and conservation of species, communities and ecosystems of mountains and oceanic islands.

We combine field-based empirical research and ecological modeling, and integrate several perspectives, from molecular, functional and evolutionary ecology to conservation and evolutionary biology.
