Geobiodiversität in allen Facetten


Die Vielfalt des Lebens auf der Erde erforschen und erhalten – das ist unser Ziel. Die verantwortlichen Wissenschaftler*innen stellen unsere vier Forschungsbereiche vor.

Update Crustaceen

01 Biodiversität, Systematik und Evolution

Der Schwerpunkt „Biodiversität, Systematik und Evolution“ ist die Basis für alle Forschungsbereiche Senckenbergs an Land und im Wasser. Im Fokus stehen rezente und ausgestorbene Lebensformen. Unser Ziel ist es, die Biodiversität auf unserem Planeten zu ergründen und zu verstehen – wir er fassen Arten, analysieren ihre Verbreitung und ihre verwandtschaftlichen sowie evolutionären Beziehungen.

Ozeane im Klimawandel
Prof. Dr.  Angelika Brandt
leitet die Abteilung Marine Zoologie am Senckenberg-Standort Frankfurt und lehrt an der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt. Ihr Forschungsinteresse gilt Verbreitungsmustern und treibenden Faktoren für die Evolution und Ver-breitung der marinen Makrofauna.

Forschungsinteressen

Die Tiefsee ist der größte Lebensraum der Welt, jedoch gehört sie zu den am wenigsten erforschten Regionen. Unsere bisherigen Erkenntnisse dokumentieren jedoch eine sehr hohe Artenvielfalt am Meeresboden der Tiefsee. Ich versuche daher mit meiner Arbeitsgruppe die Artenvielfalt der Tiefsee zu erfassen, die Verbreitung der Organismen zu analysieren sowie ihre Ökologie und Evolution zu erforschen.

In meiner Arbeitsgruppe wird hauptsächlich an Krebsen (insbesondere Meeresasseln, Isopoda) als Modellorganismen gearbeitet, da diese Tiergruppe in der Tiefsee sehr häufig ist und gute Vergleichsuntersuchungen vorliegen. Wir analysieren die stammesgeschichtliche Herkunft und Besiedlungsgeschichte der Isopoden in der Tiefsee (wie z. B. Sub- und Emergenzphänomne im Südpolarmer), wir versuchen zu analysieren welches in der Tiefsee die treibenden Faktoren für die hohe Diversität sind und bearbeiten Artbildung, Konkurrenz und Koexistenz in Raum und Zeit.

Unsere aktuellen Projekte thematisieren die Besiedlungsmuster in der Tiefsee sowie ihre ökologischen und evolutionsbiologischen Hintergründe sowie die mögliche zukünftige Entwicklung der Biodiversität.

Lehre

Ich unterrichte ich im Fachbereich Biowissenschaften am Institut für Ökologie und Evolution an der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt.

Im Bachelorstudiengang Biowissenschaften betreue ich einen Kurs im Bachelormodul 6b „Diversität der Organismen: Zoologie“. Im Rahmen von Exkursionen, Vorlesungen und eines Praktikums behandle ich die Systematik und Anatomie ausgewählter Tierstämme und unterrichte über die Bedeutung naturwissenschaftlicher Sammlungen und Forschungsmuseen.

Für das Mastermodul Evo-11 „Integrative Biodiversitätsforschung in der Zoologie“ habe ich mit Herrn Dr. Riehl und Kolleg*innen einen interaktiven und sehr praxisorientierten Kursteil entworfen, der innerhalb von zwei Wochen alle wichtigen Arbeitsschritte der taxonomisch-systematischen Erforschung von Tiefseemakrofauna vermittelt. Die Teilnehmer sortieren echte Tiefseeproben, entdecken und bestimmen Organismen daraus und erlernen dann über die Praxis das taxonomische Beschreiben einer Art, das Charakterisieren und kodieren von morphologischen Merkmalen sowie das Erstellen von Bestimmungsschlüsseln.

Kurzer Lebenslauf

Prof. Dr. Angelika Brandt wurde in Minden Westfalen geboren und studierte Biologie und Pädagogik an der Universität Oldenburg (MSc 1987, PhD 1992). 1995 wurde sie ordentliche Professorin an der Universität Hamburg am Zoologischen Museum und Kuratorin der Abteilung Wirbellose II (Krustentiere und Polychaeta). Seit 2003 war sie entweder stellvertretende Direktorin oder Direktorin (2004-2009) des Zoologischen Museums der Universität Hamburg. Angelika Brandt arbeitet an der Makrofauna der Tiefsee und der Polarregionen und hat an 29 Expeditionen teilgenommen. Sie beschäftigt sich mit Systematik, Biodiversität, Biogeographie, Evolution und Ökologie der Tiefsee-Isopoda (Crustacea, Malacostraca). Die Abteilung für Marine Zoologie und die Abteilung Krustentiere des Senckenberg-Forschungsinstituts und Naturmuseums wird seit April 2017 von Angelika Brandt geleitet, die seit ihrer Mitgliedschaft im Stiftungsausschuss des Deutschen Zentrums für marine Biodiversität in Wilhelmshaven und Hamburg (DZMB) mit Senckenberg-zusammenarbeitet. Ihre Arbeit konzentriert sich auf die Systematik, Ökologie und Evolution von perakariden Krebstieren mit Schwerpunkt auf Isopoda aus Tiefsee- und Polarlebensräumen. Im Rahmen der Volkszählung des Meeresorganismen (CoML) war sie an den Antarktis- und Tiefseefeldprojekten CAML (Vielfalt des Meereslebens in der Antarktis) und CeDAMar (Vielfalt des Meereslebens im Abyssal) beteiligt. Ihre Arbeit dokumentierte die hohe Artenvielfalt von Tiefsee-Wirbellosen im Südpolarmeer. In den letzten Jahren konzentrierte sich ihr Forschungsinteresse auf die Identifizierung von Evolutionstreibern in der Tiefsee wie Ausbreitungsbarrieren sowie auf die Weiterentwicklung der Methoden zur Probenahme in der Tiefsee. Sie ist in der Tiefseeforschung tätig (derzeit im Nordwestpazifik und im Südpolarmeer), interessiert sich aber auch für die Artenvielfalt der Weltmeere. Senckenberg hat auch einen starken traditionellen marinen Fokus auf das Rote und Arabische Meer sowie die Nordsee und die Ostsee Meer.

o2 Biodiversität und Umwelt

Wir erforschen den zunehmenden Einfluss des Menschen auf die Biodiversität und Umwelt. Ein Fokus liegt auf Langzeituntersuchungen von Arten und Umweltvariablen in Observatorien (Langzeit-Ökosystemdynamik). Im zweiten Schwerpunkt „Biodiversity Conservation“ erforschen wir Biodiversitätsveränderungen – mit dem Ziel, geeignete Schutz- und Managementstrategien zu entwickeln.

04 Biodiversität und Erdsystemdynamik

Die Entwicklung des Lebens im System Erde, die damit verbundenen biologischen und geologischen Wechselwirkungen, aber auch die Krisen der Entwicklungsgeschichte zu verstehen, ist eine der Kernaufgaben Senckenbergs. Wir untersuchen die vielfältigen Zusammenhänge von Geodynamik, Erdoberflächenprozessen und Klimawandel bis hin zur Evolution des Menschen und seiner natürlichen und kulturellen Umweltbedingungen.

Prof. Dr. Andreas Mulch
Institutsdirektor Senckenberg Forschungsinstitut und Naturmuseum Frankfurt
ist Mitglied des Senckenberg-Direktoriums und Stellvertreter des Generaldirektors, Direktor des Senckenberg Forschungsinstituts und Naturmuseums Frankfurt sowie Professor an der Goethe-Universität. Sein Forschungsschwerpunkt liegt im Bereich der Paläoklimaforschung.

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
