Welcome to the Ecosystem Management group at ETH Zurich
The Ecosystem Management group was established at ETH Zurich in October 2005. The group is located within the Institute of Terrestrial Ecosystems, in the Department of Environmental Systems Science.
Research within the group centres on ecological and evolutionary processes relating to plant reproduction, and the relevance of these processes to ecosystem management, conservation and agricultural production. Our research addresses both pure and applied issues spanning local to global scales. Specific fields include ecosystem services, plant reproductive ecology and conservation, conservation genetics, adaptation to climate change, sustainable forest management, ecological responses to forest fragmentation, and agricultural and biofuel production.
Undergraduate teaching focuses on conservation and tropical rain forest ecology. At postgraduate level (PhD and Masters) several courses address ecology and environmental management of both natural and human-dominated ecosystems. These include Ecosystem Management, Disturbance Ecology, Managing Ecosystems for Resistance and Resilience, and Ecological Assessment and Evaluation. Another Masters course, Readings in Environmental Thinking, concerns environmental philosophy and literature. The group also runs a PhD field course in Scotland on Conservation Management.
The Ecosystem Management group belongs to several networks and competence centres, including the Zurich-Basel Plant Sciences Centre and the ETH World Food Systems Centre, reflecting both our core plant ecological interests as well the relevance of our work to tropical ecology, land use and development.
