Focusing on sport ecology, we investigate the interactions between outdoor sport and ecological systems, as well as the potential of sport to raise our environmental awareness. By linking the increasingly available datasets in ecology and sport, we make interactions quantitatively traceable.
We aim on preventing biodiversity loss by investigating processes that cause species extinction. We recognize that ecological systems are characterized by a persistent change in environmental influences and biotic contexts. Therefore, we connect across disciplines – from landscape ecology to paleobiology - to comprehensively cover spatial, temporal and taxonomic scales.
