Are urban ecosystems sinks for animal and plant populations? - Surveys and experimental tests along an urban-rural gradient
There is a rapidly growing interest in urban ecology but so far there has been a lack of a systematic, analytical and experimental approach. We will use an urban-rural gradient as a basis for testing six fundamental hypotheses related to diversity patterns and biotic processes in urban ...
Assessing global patterns of ecological regime shifts
The planned and unintended consequences of human action are altering the structure and functioning of the earth?s ecosystems. While human action often produces gradual, predictable ecological change, some changes in ecosystems and their services are abrupt, substantial and difficult to reverse. ...
Assessing vulnerability of urban systems, populations and goods in relation to climate-induced natural disasters in Africa
Develop innovative approaches to enhance the resilience of cities against climate-change-induced risks: 1) propose innovative land use and spatial planning that will seek synergies between the adaptation to climate change and need to solve social problems. This includes urban green spaces, ...
Dealing with rapid and slow changes: the role of modularity and connectivity in social-ecological systems
The project focus on how we may reduce failure in management of natural resources under scenarios of slow vs. rapid change. To find robust solutions we will develop tools and concepts based on recent advances in ecological and sociological network theory. We stand at the edge of a breakthrough in ...
Does moisture recycling matter for social-ecological resilience? An analysis of land use change impact on evaporation and precipitation at regional to global scales
Governance of ecosystem service under scenarios of change in southern and eastern Africa
Human dimensions behind the greening in Sahel: A comparative study of social-ecological dynamics in greened and non-greened communities in Niger
Impact of land use change on resilience of water flows and ecosystem services: a cross-scale assessment
One of the main ecological challenges in the 21st century is how to meet the water requirements for food production and other ecosystem services. In this updated version of my funded proposal from 2005 I address this challenge by focusing on how changes in ecological controls of water flows caused ...
Impacts of land use change on resilience of water flows and ecosystem services: a cross-scale assessment
One of the main ecological challenges in the 21st century is how to meet the water requirements for food production and other ecosystem services. I address this challenge by focusing on how changes in ecological controls of water flows caused by land use and land cover change, affects the ...
Modeling the dynamics of interacting ecosystem services in human dominated landscapes
Humanity relies upon ecosystem services, however, the human modification of ecosystems to increase the supply of food and fiber has resulted in the decline of many other ecosystem services. Now individuals, groups and governments are attempting to correct this problem by including other ecosystem ...
