Institute of Environmental Biology

Plants, microbes and animals are essential components of our natural environment and their interactions play a key role in the sustainability of life on Earth. Our interdisciplinary research programme is focused on the biological mechanisms that determine how plants, microbes and animals interact with each other and how they are able to adapt to their constantly changing and often harmful environment. Inspired by nature, the Institute of Environmental Biology aims to contribute to the development of sustainable solutions for urgent societal problems such as future food security, ecological consequences of climate change, and protection of our natural resources.
