Our mission is to describe biodiversity in species-rich areas of the world and to elucidate the processes giving rise to this biodiversity. We are concentrating on widely distributed and speciose genera and families and on geographic areas of high global conservation priority, e.g., Southeast Asia, mountains of Southwest and Central China, Central and South America and sub-Saharan Africa.

Research Fields

Our mission is to describe biodiversity in species-rich areas of the world such as the tropics, subtropics, and mountainous regions. We investigate the processes that have led to this biodiversity and  concentrate on widely distributed and speciose genera and families as well as on geographic areas of high global conservation priority, e.g. Southeast Asia, Central and South America and mountains of Southwest and Central China.

Our research is organized into three priority research areas.

Tropical plants are an important source for food, bioenergy, timber and biologically active secondary compounds. Use and conservation of these plant species is only possible if they can be named. However, fundamental taxonomic information is often lacking for tropical plant groups. In our monographs and other taxonomic treatments, we provide this information.

Modern taxonomic treatments often incorporate knowledge derived from molecular phylogenetic research. We use phylogenetic tools to resolve species relationships and to investigate concepts of species delimitation. Our molecular work is often closely tied to a morphological assessment of species. In addition, producing maximally predictive phylogenetic trees can direct the search for secondary compounds with e.g. insecticidal, antifungal, bactericidal, antiviral and cytotoxic activities as well as numerous medicinal effects in animals and humans.

Phylogenetic tools can also be used to complete the missing pieces of the "tree of life". This allows us to refine biological classifications and understand macro-evolutionary patterns.

One of the challenges for biodiversity science is finding an explanation why the biological diversity on Earth is unevenly distributed, with some areas being exceptionally species-rich. Understanding the underlying processes that have driven the accumulation of species in some areas and not in others, may help guide prioritization in conservation and may facilitate forecasts on ecosystem services under future climate conditions. We use a combination of various approaches (e.g. phylogenetics, biogeography, distribution and niche modelling) to investigate how the assembly and evolution of floras in different parts of the world was influenced by past geological and climatic changes.

In modern times, and on smaller time and spatial scales, land use has been proposed as the most important factor acting upon the biotic environment and species´ distributions. Some of the future challenges for scientists will be to find answers to questions like how current land use and climate change will influence species´ distributions (and thus ultimately their evolutionary fate), how climate change will impact land use, and how the effects of land use and modern climate change can be disentangled.

The mycological activities are wide-ranging and can be divided into the following thematic fields:

  • Fungi in tree crowns of temperate and tropical forests with emphasis on lignicolous and endophytic species.
  • Distribution. ecology and abundance changes of threatened macrofungi regional and in the European scale.
  • Elaboration of checklists and surveys of threatened fungi (Red List of Macromycetes of Germany).
  • Investigations on decay of coarse woody debris in forests with different management regimes.

Current activities focus on studies on colonisation and decay of dead wood by Asco- and Basidiomycota. It is a matter of a multidisciplinary project, funded by the DFG with collaborators in Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research Leipzig-Halle, University of Freiburg, and the International Institute Zittau. The study sites are located in the biodiversity exploratories of DFG in Schwäbische Alb, Hainich, and Schorfheide.   

Coarse woody debris is a key habitat element in all forest ecosystems and it is mainly decayed by fungi. In methodological respect the research in Leipzig is based on capturing fruitbody data as indicator for physiological active fungal species. Among others, species richness and distribution is investigated on dead wood in dependence of forest management intensity and substrate diversity (13 different tree genera, BeLongDead experiment). The evaluation of the silvicultural influence on the biota of forests is one of the main subjects of the biodiversity exploratories. Beyond doubt, also the fungal diversity is shaped by the different forest management regimes. Since many fungi are specialised in long-distance dispersal, the evidence of such a correlation is a particular challenge in the strongly fragmented Central European cultural landscape. In addition to the main subjects of the biodiversity exploratories, the influence of nitrogen (as applied ammonium nitrate solution) and humidity (sunny and shaded storage of analogous wood) on fungal colonisation and diversity is studied.
