Working group: „Ecosystem Dynamics“
Ecosystems are not stable entities, they change and evolve. This dynamic in space and time is the main research focus of the working group “Ecosystem Dynamics” at Greifswald University. Established in 2005, the research group is mainly working in the boreal and arctic regions of the northern hemisphere, concentrating on carbon balance in peatlands and the influence of climate change on boreal forest tree and shrub species.
We are based at the Institute of Botany and Landscape Ecology at the Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, Germany. Our finish cooperating partners are the Finish Forest Research Institute (METLA), University of Joensuu, University of Kuopio, and the Karelian Institute. Our Russian partners are at University of Khanty Mansyisk and at the Komi Science Centre in Syktyvkar. In the United States, close ties exits with University of Alaska Fairbanks and the tree ring lab at the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory.
We are mainly funded by a Sofja Kovalevskaja Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and by the German Science Foundation in the Emmy Noether Program (DFG, WI 2680/2-1). This is the first Emmy Noether Group at the University of Greifswald and at the time, the only one in Mecklenburg Vorpommern. We are a partner in CarboNorth, an EU funded project (coordination P. Kuhry, Stockholm University) and our work is complemented by various other grants.
