Biogeochemistry of Agroecosystems
Welcome to the Department of Biogeochemistry of Agroecosystems
The target of our division is the quantification of element fluxes at the interface soil-plant-microorganism and the identification of their controlling factors. We focus on multidirectional carbon, nutrient and water fluxes from the ecosystem scale down to the metabolic fluxes in individual groups of the microbial community. The scale-briding approach of our division can be summarized as FLUXOMICS.
The institute is financed by the Robert-Bosch Foundation in the framwork of the Robert Bosch Junior Professorship: Sustainable Use of Renewable Natural Ressources
