Changes of biological diversity, of species and their traits in space and time
Spatial and temporal variation of diversity on large taxonomic, spatial, and temporal scales
Integrative species distribution models to project changes of biodiversity under climate and land-use change
Welcome to the BioChange Lab!
We study the distribution of life in space and time, with a focus on impacts of climate and land-use change on species and biodiversity
