The goal of our work is to understand patterns and constraints of species distributions. This includes studies on the composition of vertebrate communities, their biogeographic evolution, physiological constraints, food selection, interspecific interactions and how the species involved react to changing environmental conditions. We focus on vertebrates in Germany, Scandinavia, Croatia, and Madagascar.
