Prof. Dr. Nico Eisenhauer
Biology/Ecology, University of Jena
In his research work Nico Eisenhauer deals with the fundamental question of how global change impacts on biodiversity and the functions of ecosystems. In doing so, he analyses the consequences of rising carbon dioxide concentrations, higher temperatures and nitrogen deposits, more frequent droughts and the establishment of non-native species. In his previous work, Nico Eisenhauer has been able to significantly expand our understanding of the interaction of plants and soil life and the complex interactions in microbial communities of the soil.
