Thursday, the 6th of April, 2017The research unit met for a short 2 days workshop in Rückersbach, near Aschaffenburg. Each research group gave a talk about the current status of the projects. Besides productive work, we had delicious food and relaxing walks. The next research unit meeting will be in the well-known Waldschlösschen in September. Special guests will be Sonia Kefi and Korinna Allhoff.
Tuesday, the 24th of January, 2017First meeting of the PhD students in 2017. Besides interesting talks from old and new members of the research unit, there was a lot of discussion. One highlight was a guide through the iDiv labs. It was refreshing to see a different aspect of ecology, but most research unit students admitted that they are happier working in front of a computer.
Monday, the 24th of October, 2016The second research unit meeting in 2016 takes place in "Waldschlösschen" near Göttingen. The workshop started with a "scientific speed dating", to bring new and old members of the reseach unit into discussions. A talk from our special guest Juliano Sarmento Cabral complemented the first day. The following days were used for productive discusisons and finding future collaborations.

Abstract. The dynamical behavior and stability of ecosystems, respectively the in this work discussed subgroup food webs, are typically influenced by effects, which can sustainably change those. To gain a better understanding of the reaction of the whole system, this work investigates the dependance on species diversity and the stability of the population in regard to for instance willingness to migrate, total number of species and hunting behavior...
