Welcome to the Terrestrial Systems Ecology Group of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich.

We are an interdisciplinary group studying dynamics of terrestrial ecosystems as impacted by environmental changes such as climatic change. The group is headed by Andreas Fischlin.

The group formerly with the Institute of Integrative Biology (IBZ) belongs now to the Institute of Biogeochemistry and Pollutant Dynamics (IBP) of the Department of Environmental Systems Science (D-USYS). It is affiliated with the Environmental Physics Group of IBP.
