Stefan Dullinger (PI)

@ Rossboth

is an ecologist with a focus on patterns of biodiversity and how they are affected by global environmental change. He is especially interested in mountain floras and their fate under a warming climate.

Karl Hülber (Senior Scientist)

is an ecologist focussing on the prediction of species distributions and eco-evolutionary processes governing species‘ ranges. In MicroClim he is co-responsible for parts of WP II (Tasks 5, 6 and 7) based on his experience in experimental approaches in alpine environments, and also involved further tasks and the co-ordination of the project.

Dietmar Moser (Senior Scientist)

is an ecologist with a focus on biogeography and particular expertise in Geographical Information Systems. In Microclim he is co-responsible for collecting, managing and analysing geographical data.

Johannes Wessely (Post-Doc researcher)

is an ecological modeller focussing on future species distributions under global change. In MicroClim is primarily involved in Tasks 5 and 9 regarding his experience in static as well as dynamic distribution models.

Kryštof Chytrý (PhD student)

is a plant ecologist interested especially in community ecology and biogeography. Within MicroClim, he primarily focuses on Tasks 5–7, specifically: collecting data, community-level analyses and species distribution modelling. His participation on MicroClim is a core of his PhD study he is currently doing at the University of Vienna.

Andreas Gattringer (PhD student)

is developing spatially explicit population dynamics models and implementing them with a focus on performance. In MICROCLIM his main responsibility is WP II Task 9.

Johannes Hausharter (PhD student)

is an ecologist with a special interest in statistical models exploring population dynamics and patterns of biodiversity. He is a PhD student within the MicroClim project and will be responsible for Tasks 1 – 3, investigating the ability of species distribution models to predict plant species’ responses to climate change using long-term monitoring data.

Norbert Helm (PhD student)

is a plant ecologist and field botanist with special interest in the alpine and montane flora. In MicroClim he is primarily involved in Tasks 5, 6 and 7 where his focus lies on collecting and analysing plant community data. He is also doing his PhD within the MicroClim project at the University of Vienna.
