The Biodiversity and Functional Ecology research group develops theoretical, empirical and observational approaches to understand the role of biodiversity in ecosystem functioning and to propose actions towards ecological sustainability under the ongoing global climate change.
The research group joins expertise on marine and freshwater biology, ecology, ecotoxicology, microbiology, genetics, and mathematics. The application of diversified tools (e.g. omics and modelling) to address questions on the ecology and biodiversity of wild populations allows the design of strategies for the management and conservation of ecosystems and populations.
The research group has developed complementary research in Molecular and Functional Ecology, Modelling and Conservation Biology to:
