Bridges Gaps

by linking innovative individual research projects that overcome the apparent gap between movement ecology and biodiversity research, employing a joint conceptual framework


Strategically combines

empirical, experimental and modelling approaches based in one common study area (AgroScapeLab-Quillow, north-eastern Brandenburg, Germany).


Links Impacts

of land-use on resource availability, landscape structures and disturbance regimes to movement processes of organisms of different taxa.


Creates deeper Understanding

by pursuing bottom-up and top-down approaches to reveal possible consequences of movement changes on biodiversity.
