Introduction
I am a biologist with a PhD in Natural Sciences and a specialised journalist. My work focuses on studies of various biodiversity and education topics, data management, public relations and education for sustainable development. My research interests are particularly lichens and plants (including bryophytes), effects of anthropogenic disturbance on diversity and nature conservation.

These are important times for biodiversity. Despite the global pandemic in 2020, the process towards the adoption of a global biodiversity framework at the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), now scheduled for 2021, is progressing. In addition, 29 October 2020 marked ten years since the ado...

Die Bildungsstudie „Assessment der Bildungsangebote hinsichtlich Biodiversität und Ökosystemleistungen im Raum Bonn im Sinne einer Bildung für nachhaltige Entwicklung (BNE)“, gefördert von der Stiftung Umwelt und Entwicklung Nordrhein-Westfalen (SUE), wurde von April 2017 bis März 2019 durchgeführt. Die Studie leistet einen Beitrag zu einer verbess...

The PREDICTS project—Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems (www.predicts.org.uk)—has collated from published studies a large, reasonably representative database of comparable samples of biodiversity from multiple sites that differ in the nature or intensity of human impacts relating to land use. We have used t...
Chapter
Nicht nur die Anzahl der Arten ist weltweit in dramatischer Weise rückläufig, sondern auch die Zahl der Artenkennerinnen und Artenkenner. Das FörTax-Projekt hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, dem entgegen zu wirken und Interesse und Wissen im Bereich der Artenkenntnis aller taxonomischen Gruppen Mitteleuropas zu fördern. Die Maßnahmen sind, neben einer Bes...
Presentation
Full-text available
The main objective of FörTax is to promote taxonomic knowledge as a basis for nature conservation in order to counteract the erosion of taxonomy and species knowledge in various fields of application. FörTax is part of the Federal Biodiversity Programme, funded by the BfN and BMUV over a period of six years. Since the project was launched in Septe...

2020 is a critical year for biodiversity. Despite the global pandemic, the process towards the adoption of a global biodiversity framework at the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the CBD, postponed to 2021, is progressing. In addition, 29 October 2020 marked 10 years since the adoption of the Nagoya Protocol on access and benefit-sh...

Full-text available
Die Bedeutung öffentlicher Grün- und Freiflächen für die Entwicklung zukunftsfähiger Städte ist grundsätzlich bei Politik und Gesellschaft anerkannt. Wichtig sind dabei der Erhalt und Schutz der Biodiversität im urbanen Raum, die Klimaanpassung als Antwort auf den Klimawandel und die Steigerung der Lebensqualität der dort lebenden Menschen. Der Bev...

Die soziale, ökonomische und ökologische Bedeutung öff entlicher und halböff entlicher Grün- und Freifl ächen in den Städten ist lange bekannt, trotzdem sind diese weiterhin gefährdet; viele Kommunen sind wegen Mangels an Personal und Finanzmitteln, politischem Druck und steigendem Bedarf an Wohnraum kaum in der Lage, zum einen die erforderliche Öf...

Three Global Conditions for Biodiversity Conservation The current study investigates how the Three Conditions-Approach developed by IUCN's World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA) Post-2020 task force would work for the current German National Biodiversity Strategy (of 2007) and the Nature Conservation Action Programme 2020 launched by the Minist...
Article
Full-text available
Biodiversity continues to decline in the face of increasing anthropogenic pressures such as habitat destruction, exploitation, pollution and introduction of alien species. Existing global databases of species’ threat status or population time series are dominated by charismatic species. The collation of datasets with broad taxonomic and biogeograph...

We sampled the diversity of epiphytes (lichens, bryophytes, vascular plants) and moths (Geometridae, Arctiidae) in mature and recovering forest and in open vegetation in the montane belt in Ecuador. No uniform pattern of change in species richness was detected among the different taxonomic groups with increasing disturbance. Species richness of epi...
Chapter
Full-text available
Highly complex ecosystems such as the tropical mountain rain forest in southern Ecuador probably harbor tens of thousands of species that interact with each other. It is impossible to understand an ecosystem without knowing the composition of its community. Such knowledge cannot be achieved without the examination of all major groups of animals, fu...

Full-text available
The northern Andes (Colombia to northern Peru) is the richest biogeographical region in the New World tropics in terms of bryophytes (= mosses, liverworts, and hornworts; Gradstein et al. 2001). Nevertheless, bryophyte inventories from this region are few and usually incomplete, or deal with selected habitats only. This catalogue of the bryophyte f...

With regard to lichen diversity, Ecuador ranks among the richest countries in the world. However the exploration of these treasures still has a long way to go, although more progress has been made than the scarce publications dedicated to the lichen mycota of the country might suggest. Notably the Swede Lars Arvidsson made extensive collections dur...
Article
In a first inventory of the lichen flora of the Reserva Biológica San Francisco (1800-3150 m) in the Andes of Southern Ecuador we report 214 species of which 55 are new records for the country. Apparently four species are new to science. About 55% of the species are widespread in the tropics (21% neotropical and 34% pantropical), 14,5% have a tempe...

A preliminary survey of the bryophyte flora of the Reserva Biológica San Francisco (1 800-3 150 m) in the Andes of southern Ecuador yielded 305 species: 190 hepatics, 112 mosses and 3 hornworts. 63 species are reported new to Ecuador, most of them hepatics. Noteworthy records of rare species include Pleurozia paradoxa (Jack) Schiffn. and P. heterop...

Full-text available
A protocol for rapid and representative sampling of vascular and non-vascular epiphytes (ex- cluding epiphylls) is presented for one hectare of tropical rain forest, including montane forest. We estimate that the inventory and morphospecies recognition (excluding species identification) can be camed out in approximately 2 weeks by a team of six per...

Project
The project including three Institutions (Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig-Leibniz Institute for Biodiversity of Animals, the Didactics of Biology at the University of Bonn and the Natural Research Society of the Saarland (Delattinia)) aims to analyze, record and develop educational offers on taxonomy for various ages and levels of education knowledge. The resulting network of facilities and institutions that train species experts is to be consolidated and expanded in three conferences (every two years, starting in November 2021). A final guideline is intended to support the educational institutions in being able to offer appropriate educational programs beyond the duration of the project in order to increase taxonomic knowledge in science and society and thus ultimately to significantly promote nature and species conservation in the long term.
Archived project
This Citizen Science project is addressed to children and youth. Teaching material was created as well as identification tables for 20 exotic species common in the Bonn region (Germany). Children and youth learn about neobiota and how to recognize exotic plants (neophytes). They collect actively occurrence data and images using an app (ArtenFinder). Gathered data are used by nature conservation authority and scientists (BUND - Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz Deutschland NRW e.V.: www.bundforschtinbonn.de). Financially supported by the foundation "Stiftung Umwelt und Entwicklung NRW" (2014-2016)
