My general topics inverstigate whether and how the structure, composition and dynamics of natural communities are affected by global changes. I mainly focus on long-term and large spatial-scale patterns and processes. In current global changes, we should not only measure the decrease in species numbers and population sizes but also anticipate: which species (but also functions, processes and evolutionary potential) will be in trouble (or not), why, when and where? I also develop epistemoligical investigations related to these questions.
