Reassembly of species interaction networks – Resistance, resilience and functional recovery of a rainforest ecosystem
In Nov 2021 we have started a DFG-funded Research Unit (FOR 5207) REASSEMBLY of species interaction networks. See Homepage of REASSEMBLY.
“REASSEMBLY” aims at understanding network dynamics to uncover rules of network dis- and reassembly in a highly diverse tropical lowland rainforest ecosystem. We will study the dynamics of natural forest recovery from agriculture along a chronosequence and the contribution of re-assembled networks to the resilience of ecosystem processes against perturbation.
