Description

Our group aims at contributing to a scientifically better informed landscape management through novel research approaches and methods, including ecosystem service based studies and inter- and transdisciplinary advances. Based on the idea of integrated assessment, we link quantitative and model-based information with often more qualitative and normative approaches of decision-makers, address key uncertainties by scenario analysis and conduct research across scales and sectors. We further intend improving and adapting the portfolio of methods used in practical landscape planning in the face of recent challenges such as rapid climate and environmental change, altered social demands on ecosystem services, and associated policy frameworks.
