3. Ecosystems: Function and Services

Understanding ecosystem processes and their regulation is a prerequisite for sustainable use and maintenance of ecosystem functions and services, such as biomass production, carbon storage and regulation of water fluxes.

At BayCEER we conduct a wide range of basic research on ecosystem processes, their regulation, stability and interactions. We study terrestrial, semiterrestrial (peatlands) and freshwater ecosystems at various scales and in different regions. We consider chemical, hydrological, biological and geological processes in the lab and in the field. We also conduct applied research, quantifying ecosystem services, how environmental and human factors affect them, and how they can be efficiently protected.
