iES Landau - Institute of Environmental Sciences

Profile of the institute

The Institute of Environmental Sciences in Landau conducts basic and applied research focusing on the diverse and complex interactions between humans and the environment. The institute combines the expertise of nine working groups and thus current research from molecules, to ecosystems, to human society. The loss of biodiversity, human-induced global change, and increasing emissions of pollutants are among the most pressing problems of our time. The study of these processes and their effects on ecosystem functions requires a high degree of interdisciplinarity and are central research topics at the Institute of Environmental Sciences Landau. With its research focus on "Land-water interactions under the influence of new anthropogenic stressors", the Institute contributes to the profile of the RPTU as part of the research initiative of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
