Prof. Dr. Andreas Mulch
Stellvertretender Generaldirektor, Institutsdirektor Senckenberg Forschungsinstitut und Naturmuseum Frankfurt

The Mulch lab at the Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre and Goethe University Frankfurt uses state-of-the-art isotope geochemical approaches including novel applications of clumped isotope thermometry and molecular biomarker analysis to track changes in temperature and precipitation based on geologic materials such as paleosoils, fossil teeth or minerals in the Earth’s crust that store information about near surface meteoric waters in active deformation zones of our planet.

Collectively, these data permit reconstructions of the change in elevation of mountain belts through time and their role in guiding atmospheric moisture transport over continents or provide cornerstones in establishing the interactions of biotic and abiotic drivers of speciation and evolution in the highly diverse mountainous regions of e.g. the Andes and the Himalayas.

Research interests

  • Stable isotope paleoaltimetry
  • Interactions of mountains, climate and biodiversity
  • Paleoclimate reconstructions

Katrin Böhning-Gaese
Prof. Dr. Katrin Böhning-Gaese
Institutsdirektorin Senckenberg Biodiversität und Klima Forschungszentrum, Frankfurt

Research interests: Macroecology, community ecology and conservation biology
– Influence of global climate and human land-use change on animal populations and communities in the tropics and in the temperate region
– Relationship between the diversity of animal communities and ecosystem functioning
– Macroecology and evolution of bird communities and of bird migration

Teaching: Courses at Goethe University Frankfurt in the MSc Ecology and Evolution and in the BSc Biology

MSc Ecology and Evolution and MSc Environmental Sciences: module „Community ecology, Makroökologie und Naturschutz“

  • Content: The module includes an introductory lecture, seminars on current scientific publications, and computer and field practicals. It gives an overview about theory, statistical methods and applications of community ecology and macroecology, as well as consequences for regional and global conservation prioritisation. The module includes an ornithological fieldwork practical outside Frankfurt (duration 1 week).

BSc Biology: specialisation module „Ökologie der Tiere“ (animal ecology) – part „Makroökologie – Einfluss des Klimawandels auf Artverbreitungen“ (macroecology – influence of climate change on species distributions)

  • Content: In our part of the module we investigate the potential effects of climate change on the distributions of different European bird species. We use species distribution models to project potential distributions of birds in dependency of climate scenarios for the end of the 21st century.
