Understanding ecology and genetics of natural populations is a major aim of the research within our department. We do so at many different levels as specified below using a wide range of model organisms and systems. While our primary focus is on forbs and grasses in open habitats within Central Europe, several our projects go also beyond this scope. These include done in other areas of the world such as Norway, Nepal Himalayas or the Canary Islands.
