Terrestrial Ecology Section – Biologisk Institut - Københavns Universitet

Terrestrial Ecology Section

The Terrestrial Ecology Section has long expertise in studying interactions between organisms, key processes they control, and their influence on the environment. Individually, we are experts in soil biology, plant ecology, fungal ecology, biogeochemistry, and plant ecophysiology. Together, we can reveal the role of diversity and key organisms controlling the cycling of natural and anthropogenic compounds in ecosystems, and how environmental changes, for example climate change, impact ecosystems.
