The sustainable use of natural resources relies on an informed understanding of community and ecosystem processes. The Institute of Terrestrial Ecosystems is dedicated to providing the scientific basis for addressing societal challenges related to the effects of global, regional and local environmental and land-use changes on terrestrial ecosystem functioning, life-supporting ecosystem services and natural resource availability.

We develop and disseminate new knowledge, methods, and tools to foster the sustainable use and adaptive management of terrestrial ecosystems, particularly of forests and forested landscapes. For this purpose we (1) elucidate relevant ecological processes and their interactions across scales in time and space, and (2) develop new ecosystem management strategies.

Current focus areas include

ITES strives to link systems knowledge with target and transformation knowledge to secure the sustainable provision of ecosystem goods and services.
