The Research Group of Biogeochemistry (in forest and nature under change) study the cycles of water, carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and other elements in terrestrial ecosystems.

We aim to improve the understanding of ecosystem functioning, and specifically focus on how ecosystems will respond to environmental changes and to management actions by quantifying the pools and fluxes of matter in semi-natural and managed ecosystems.
