sMars: Synthesis of movement across scales: towards a process-based prediction of biodiversity patterns

First meeting: tba

iDiv members: Carsten Meyer

Project summary:
Movement is the key process driving species interactions, community composition, and ultimately biodiversity patterns across scales. However, the geographic scale of biodiversity research does not necessarily match the scale at which animals move and interact. Thus, we aim to compile a general movement database and develop an empirically informed unified concept of spatial scale that accounts for the differences in how species experience their spatial environment. We will synthesize this concept with modelling approaches to predict biodiversity patterns and change.
