"The working atmosphere at sDiv/iDiv is extremely inspiring, friendly, fun, inclusive, collaborative, supportive, flexible and, exciting. sDiv and all people involved, group leaders, postdocs, administrative people have created an extremely welcoming environment."
– Angélica González (Rutgers University)
“The sabbatical was hosted primarily at iDiv within the Theory group and sDiv but co-hosted by the Helmholtz Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity (HIFMB) in Oldenburg. This proved to be a very productive environment for investigating questions of community change through time.”
– Prof Malin Pinsky (Rutgers University)
“In addition to my sabbatical project, my short time at iDiv was very intellectually stimulating. I attended seminars, participated in Jonathan Chase's lab meetings and in the sDiv lab meetings, and I regularly went to lunch with the PhD students and PD's. I particularly enjoyed discussions about the challenges encountered in research syntheses that involve large-scale data compilations.”
– Prof Lenore Fahrig (Carleton University)
