Mitigating biodiversity loss in the face of climate change

With funding from the Wyss Academy for Nature, the Cantonal Office for Agriculture and Nature (Lanat) and the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) we are building a contiguous workflow from mapping and measuring biodiversity to modelling niches and the effects of climate change and other environmental pressures to developing mitigation measures and implementing them in pilot regions.

Our team consists of four postdocs covering genetics and highly resolved taxonomy, community-wide ecological niche modelling and projecting effects of climate change and management options.
