We investigate ecological interactions and evolutionary processes"

The section Animal and Molecular Ecology studies ecological interactions and evolutionary processes. It covers the spectrum from basic to applied research, mostly in an organismal approach with an emphasis on terrestrial ecosystems and invertebrates.

We combine traditional techniques such as morphometrics, environmental monitoring and behavioural assays with ecological-niche modelling, stable isotope analysis and molecular genetics, including next generation genomics.

The section, headed by Prof. Schlick-Steiner comprises the research group Molecular Ecology and the research area of successional change in glacial Alpine habitats (Rüdiger Kaufmann).
