Research Group on Ecosystem Services

The main goal of the Professorship of Ecological Services (PES) is to establish a research and teaching program to understand the societal relevance of ecosystem services given global change scenarios. For stimulating high practical relevance we embed the research on ecosystem services in “real” decision contexts. Study regions have been in Germany, Switzerland, South Korea, Tajikistan and Ethiopia.

The Professorship of Ecological Services is financially supported by the Bavarian Elite Network M.Sc. Graduate Program Global Change Ecology (GCE) and member of the BAYreuth Center of Ecology and Environmental Research (BAYCEER).
