Ecology and Ecosystems Seminar Series
Dr Peter Manning (University of Bern) will be giving a seminar on 6 November: Understanding Biodiversity-Ecosystem Function Linkages in Real World Ecosystems
11:00, Room P12
Oil Palm Adaptive Landscapes, a 6-yr research program spanning Indonesia, Cameroon and Colombia, is funded by SNF/SDC. Interdisciplinary & participatory, biodiversity & ecosystem services, livelihoods, policy, and development - we have it all! Starting in 2015, and recruiting soon.

Discovering nature's wonder
An interview with Jaboury Ghazoul on Mongabay.com
Robert Bagchi's research focuses in the processes that maintain biodiversity in natural ecosystems (particularly in the tropics) and how human activity might affect this biodiversity.
Chris Kettle leads the Molecular Ecology and Conservation Genetics research within the Ecosystem Management Group. His work focuses on the implications of human induced landscape changes for reproductive ecology and genetic diversity of plants. He currently has research projects in Borneo, India, Seychelles and Switzerland.
Andrea Pluess’s work focuses on plant population ecology and genetics, in particular on adaptation, phenotypic plasticity and gene flow in the face of land-use change and climate change.
Florian Knaus's work consists of teaching and supervising theses in the fields of conservation, ecosystem management, ecological assessment as well as monitoring and evaluation.
