National and international cooperation with other scientists as well as with partners from politics and administration is an essential element of our research.
Among our most important cooperation partners are:
➝ The Department of Computational Landscape Ecology and the Research Unit Ecosystems of the Future at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in Leipzig on a variety of landscape ecology topics
➝ The working group Land Use Change & Climate at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) on the use of Deep Learning in ecology
➝ The international network GEO BON (Group on Earth Observations Biodiversity Observation Network) for monitoring biodiversity and ecosystem services
➝ The School of Geography at the University of Leeds on modeling the environmental impact of agri-environmental and climate change measures in agriculture
➝ The Department of Ecology & Environmental Sciences of Palacký University Olomouc on the derivation of Farming System Archetypes and in the field of biogeographical modeling
➝ The Chair of Environmental Economics at the University of Cottbus on ecological-economic optimization
➝ The Standford Woods Institute for the Environment and the Natural Capital Project at Stanford University as well as the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota on modeling and assessing ecosystem services with remote sensing
➝ The Terrestrial Ecology Unit (TEREC) at Ghent University on the effect of sudden environmental change on speciation and adaptation in White-eyes.
➝ Chair of Ecosystem Modelling at the CCTB of the University of Würzburg to develop mechanistic simulation models to study the effects of adaptive hybridization in the wake of environmental change.
➝ SIG Bee Eater of the German Ornithologist Society on the expansion dynamics of European Bee-eaters in Germany.
➝ The Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Michigan State University on the conceptual and methodological development of predicting human influences on species distributions.
➝ The Department of Environmental Geography at VU (Vrije Universiteit) Amsterdam on spatial analysis of land-use and human-environment interactions.
➝ The Faculty of Biological Sciences and the Faculty of Forestry Sciences at Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (UANL) in Mexico on bird monitoring, grassland conservation and vegetation and flora from the north of Mexico.
➝ The Instituto Potosino de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (IPICYT), San Luis Potos on dryland ecosystem ecology and global and social changes.
➝ The Department Physical Geography of Georg-August-Universität Göttingen on factors influencing rates of soil-forming processes.
