The pilot theme of our research is the analysis of ecosystems: understanding their developments, assessing and evaluating human influences on them, conceptualizing and recommending their sustainable forms and uses. We are researching the complex dynamics of the world's ecosystems by means of modern, interdisciplinary, systems analysis.

Our research groups and their projects are currently active in northern, mid-, southern and southeastern Europe; the Near East; northern and eastern Asia; Latin America; the Arctic and the Antarctic; and on islands of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

Information about our projects can be obtained under the following departmental titles:
