Community Ecology Research

Tagesanzeiger (major Swiss daily newspaper)

Biodiversity is typically peaking at mid-altitudes. Scientists have long struggled to explain why this is the case. In a study in PNAS, we show in collaboration with scientists from EPFL that mid-altitudes host the largest number of species because the size and the connectedness of similar habitats are greatest there.

In an article and interview in the Tagesanzeiger, we report about this research.
