The Resource Ecology Group performs research and education in community ecology of large herbivores, with particular emphasis on the interactions between herbivores and the vegetation. This is carried out at aggregation levels ranging from plant part to ecosystem, in both temperate and tropical regions.
Plant facilitation produces abrupt vegetation shifts at landscape scales
Local facilitation may cause tipping points on a landscape level preceded by early warning indicators
