Ulrich Brose is the head of the section for Systemic Conservation Biology. His main interests are in the fields of (I) community ecology, (II) conservation biology, (III) consumer-resource interactions, and (IV) complex food-web analyses.
• empirical community ecology;
• assessing biodiversity in natural ecosystems;
• modeling complex food-webs;
• biodiversity-ecosystem functioning relationships;
