Katrin Meyer


Katrin Meyer is the deputy head of the section Ecosystem Modelling, Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology. Her main interests are in the fields of (i) terrestrial ecology, (ii) individual-based modelling, and (iii) spatial ecology.

Key expertise:
• Scaling-up from individuals to ecosystems
• Bacterial interactions on leaf surfaces
• Above-belowground multitrophic interactions
• Savanna dynamics modelling
• Population viability analysis
• Combining empirical and modelling approaches
