Field trip to Greece April 2014

On the island Lesbos, Greece, we study the effect of visual and olfactory salience of flowers on bee behavior in the Mediterranean ecosystem.
Cooperation partners: Aphrodite Kantsa, Theodora Petanidou, Nico Blüthgen and Christoph Stenftenagel.

In Hawaii, we worked on different projects focusing on the effects of invasive species on local ecosystems and the ecology and evolution of endemic species:

1.) Phenotypic adaptations of the endemic tree Metrosideros polymorpha on invasive flower visitors.

2.) Structure and distribution of bacterial communities colonizing flowers and leaves of Metrosideros polymorpha

3.) Niche sizes and overlap of endemic and invasive insects and their competition potential for floral resources

4.) Distribution of invasive ants along an elevational and environmental gradient

    We are gradually learning how to adapt to the Corona outbreak, both in our everyday lives as well as at the university. For us, this means changing to online teaching for the duration of the current semester.

Regulations for this are currently being drawn up; exceptions are also to be made for selected laboratory exercises and practical sports courses.
    Information of 23rd April 2020: The Minister of Science’s new ruling on special regulations for study law at universities has now been announced, which gives us the opportunity to regulate some important matters. Please note that these regulations have been set for a limited time period (i.e. for this semester, but sometimes even beyond this).
