Project description

Central to this PhD project is the question how to identify key factors explaining the species composition. I will apply trait-based approaches and life-history strategy approaches to explore and and gain fundamental understanding of how species-environment relationships can be used to predict insect responses to fragmentation of chalck grasslands.
