Welcome to the Department of Animal Ecology/BITÖK

Our principal aim is to understand the role of phytophagous insects in forest ecosystems. Therefore, we study biotic interactions between insects and epiphytic microorganisms on the surfaces of needles and leaves, as well as their effects on fluxes of energy and matter from the canopies of trees to the forest floor. A further topic of our studies are the mutualistic relationships between ants and honeydew producing insects. We aim to integrate evolutionary and biogeochemical aspects in our studies and develop a process oriented approach based on optimization priziples to study individuals, populations and ecosystems.
