Nature Conservation and Plant Ecology Group

Wageningen - Netherlands

The Nature Conservation and Plant Ecology Group (NCP) performs research and education in the fields of nature conservation, systems ecology and plant population biology, focusing on the interactions between vegetation characteristics and ecosystem dynamics in temperate and boreal regions of the northern hemisphere.

The main research fields are biodiversity-ecosystem functioning, the carbon and nutrient economy of ecosystems, community dynamics and vegetation science, plant competition and coexistence mechanisms, plant-herbivore interactions and plant population dynamics. Within many of these fields we also consider the potential impact of climate change. The potential feedbacks between climate-induced shifts in vegetation composition and the regional climate are the focus of an exciting new field of research within our group.

Plant Ecology - Levine Group
Switzerland

Ecology is the study of the interaction between organisms and their environment. Understanding the forces that regulate these interactions is becoming ever more important as natural and managed habitats face global environmental change. Our group, headed by Professor Jonathan Levine, merges mathematical theory, greenhouse experiments, and field studies to research leading questions in plant ecology. Our teaching similarly challenges students t
