Page Content


The Department of Ecology with its Chairs covers a broad range of biotic (plants and animals) and abiotic (soil, water, climate) components of the ecosystem in terrestrial and limnic fields.
Research is organized in the sub-disciplines of ecology and is interdisciplinary linked. This results in synergies for cross-disciplinary basic research (e.g. ecosystem research, urban ecology) and the planning and resource-based research (e.g. landscape planning, nature conservation, environmental engineering).
Disciplinary broadness and the networking with planning sciences as well as with resource-oriented chairs are special features of the Department of Ecology at the TU Berlin in regional and national comparison.

In essence, the research activities of the Department of Ecology aim at

  • the basic understanding of functions and mechanisms of the ecosystem and its biotic and abiotic components as well as at their modifications through anthropogenic uses and impairments (basic research)
  • the assessment of functions of and impacts on nature and landscape as well as at strategies for the protection and the sustainable use of natural resources (biodiversity, soil, water, climate) and the environmentally friendly design of anthropogenic land use (planning and resource-related research).

Information on current research projects can be found on the websites of the Chairs.
