ILEE

Life is in constant evolution, particularly in a rapidly changing environment. At ILEE, we study the evolution of organisms, human populations, natural and agro-ecosystems. Thereby, we aim at a better understanding of the fundamental biological processes that regulate life on earth. We investigate anthropogenic pressures on the environment, including historical and socio-economic aspects. We further search for sustainable alternatives to manage natural resources, to reduce pollution, to conserve and restore biodiversity.

A strong asset of ILEE is its combination of multiple disciplines, offering completely new insights and multidisciplinary approaches on interactions of organisms, species, and ecosystems being exposed to anthropogenic impacts. These range from “classical” life sciences such as biology, geography, geology, chemistry, and physics to social science disciplines such as architecture, art, environmental history, and law.

ILEE research topics include:

  • Evolution, adaptation, and biodiversity
  • Pollution and environmental toxicology
  • Natural resources characterization and management
  • Ecosystem services
  • Sustainable plant and animal production
  • Environmental impacts on human populations
  • Environmental history and law
  • Environmental and natural resources management in the South
