Tobias Plieninger is now Professor of Social-Ecological Interactions at the Universities of Göttingen and Kassel in Germany. He was Associate Professor in Countryside Planning at the University of Copenhagen from 2013 to 2017. Before, he was head of the Ecosystem Services Research Group at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (http://www.ecosystemservices.de) and research fellow at the Geography Department of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. He holds a degree in forestry and a PhD in forest and environmental sciences from the University of Göttingen and the University of Freiburg. He is interested in the study of the driving forces, processes, and patterns of changes in human-shaped landscapes. His research integrates natural and social science approaches to landscape management, ecology, and conservation, including conservation biology, vegetation ecology, and regional development. Key topics are ecosystem services, cultural landscape, and social-ecological resilience. He was coordinator of the EU FP7 project HERCULES (Sustainable futures for Europe’s heritage in cultural landscapes) and workpackage leader in the EU FP7 project AGFORWARD (Agroforestry that will forward rural development).
