This EU-funded H2020 project investigates ecosystem services in the Greater Serengeit-Mara Ecosystem in eastern Africa. The main aim of the research project is to understand how the ongoing climate change, human population growth and landuse change affect biodiversity and human well-being, and use this information to derive novel solutions for a future sustainable development.
I lead task 4.1: "Ecosystem resilience: How regional drivers affects landscape-level ecosystem resilience and alternative states, with consequences for ecosystem services".
The main objective of this task is to quantify how regional gradients and soil fertility drive variation in ecosystem organization, with consequences for resilience, tipping points and alternative states, and specific attention for spatial interactions between landscape zones.
