Chair of Biogeography

Research interests:

  • Island biogeography and ecology, especially focusing on the endemic plant species of La Palma (Canary Islands)
  • Global treeline patterns with a particular (but not exclusive) focus on islands
  • Biogeography and ecology of high-elevation ecosystems on oceanic islands and how disturbances shape these systems (e.g. introduced herbivores, fire, etc.)
  • Spatial and ecological distribution of endemic and insular species and the possible effects of climate change on this distribution
  • Primary succession on lava flows
  • Global and macroecological patterns of all sort mainly revolving around diversity, rarity, endemism and invasion
