Fields of Research in BayCEER:

Vegetation ecology

  • Patterns and drivers of biodiversity in Palaearctic grasslands
  • Diversity-heterogeneity relationship
  • Methods for extrapolation of species richness
  • Improvement of Ecological Indicator Value systems
  • Broad-scale consistent classification of vegetation
  • Vegetation of Northern Bavaria (including bryophytes and lichens)


  • Global patterns of species richness, endemic richness and endemism rate
  • Altitudinal and latitudinal diversity gradients
  • Ecological niches along biogeographic and ecological gradients
  • Species-area relationships and other scaling laws in ecology
  • Diversity hotspots at different spatial scales


Conservation biology and restoration ecology

  • Red List methodology for plant community types and habitat types
  • Effect of invasive species on biodiversity
  • Evaluation of management measures in conservation
  • Effects of grazing on ecosystems in Europe, Asia and Africa

Experimental plant ecology

  • SIGNAL: effects of climate change, invasive species and land use in grasslands
  • Hydrological niches of grassland species and how they shape biodiversity
