About the Center

Research at the center focuses on:

How to explain the large-scale spatial distribution of biological diversity on Earth from first principles of evolution, ecology and historical contingency

How evolutionary and ecographical principles, data and knowledge can be used to develop robust, science-based strategies for management of biological diversity today and in the future

How does climate as a principal factor affect distribution of life on Earth in the past, today and in the future (given landuse- and climate change)

How species-specific, high quality data and through knowledge about the evolution, natural history and biology of species can advance our in-depth understanding about life and function of organisms on Earth
