Integrating Biodiversity Research with Movement Ecology in Dynamic Agricultural Landscapes (BioMove)
BioMove links innovative individual research projects that overcome the apparent gap between movement ecology and biodiversity research, employing a joint conceptual framework. It strategically combines empirical, experimental and modelling approaches to advance our mechanistic understanding of how biodiversity patterns emerge and how they feed back on the active and passive movement of organisms. This will improve our ability to predict biodiversity responses to ongoing changes in land use or climate. Projects cover different spatial and temporal scales and groups of organisms ranging from bacteria, fungi, plankton, plants, and insects to birds and mammals (for more details see https://www.bio-move.org/).
Doctoral candidates will also strongly profit from a unique qualification program specifically tailored to bridge between state-of-the-art concepts and methods in movement ecology and biodiversity research, supplemented by a broad range of soft skill workshops.
