E1.5: MODELLING OF THE TERRESTRIAL BIOSPHERE

Working with the Global Dynamics Vegetation Model (DGVM) "LPJ-GUESS", I integrate processes, that can predict the influences of large herbivores (elephants as well as goats) on the vegetation. My special focus are savannas. The guideline is to derive the routines from physiological processes.

"Analysis of the selfing-behaviour of Radix balthica with the aid of computer-based models"
