Environmental change

Assess and predict the impacts of environmental change on species and ecosystems and environmental sustainability

There is a clear need to improve our understanding of the consequences that natural and/or human driven environmental change will have upon the biogeography of fauna and flora  and the structure and functioning of communities and ecosystems. Problems as a result of these perturbations are sometimes  only detected when significant environmental impact has occurred that results in species losses or degradation of the benefits we derive from nature. We evaluate and forecast the impact of individual and multiple environmental pressures on single species as well as on entire ecosystems including the ecosystem services they provide for human beings.
