Project Details


This project investigates ecosystem services in the Greater Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem in eastern Africa. The main aim of the research project is to understand how the ongoing climate change, human population growth and landuse change affect biodiversity and human well-being, and use this information to derive novel solutions for a future sustainable development.
Workpackage 4 is coordinated at UG: How biodiversity enables different ecosystem services along landscape gradients.
