The Biodiversity, Macroecology, and Conservation Biogeography group is a young lab established within the Free Floater programme in the scope of the Excellence Initiative at the University of Göttingen.

We are investigating broad-scale ecological and biogeographic patterns in order to document general trends in the spatial distribution of biodiversity. We strive to better understand the processes leading to its uneven geographic distribution and to provide knowledge, theory, and tools for applied questions in conservation and basic ecology.
