Center for Ecological Research (CER)

The approach taken by the Center for Ecological Research combines field studies, theory and experimentation, using methodologies such as the detection of ecological patterns, theoretical model analysis, and experimental theory testing. Research topics include spatial and temporal dynamics, biological interactions in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and the ecological functions of biodiversity. The center also studies human impact, and aims to develop a general theory for the conservation of biodiversity and ecosystems.
