Interdisciplinary research on sustainable use of natural resources

Sustainable use of natural resources is the only way to ensure the survival of man, both ample nutrition and a healthy environment. Mankind depends at large on biological systems, which are barely understood in their entire complexity so far. Full control is not in sight yet. iFZ research is exploring potential risc factors for our environmental support systems and looking for ways to make more efficient use of our limited natural resources.

In order to research into these complex problem fields, too complex to be tackled by a single discipline, scientist from biology, agriculture, environmental and nutrition sciences gather in the iFZ Research Centre for Biosystems, Land Use and Nutriton under a single roof.

iFZ Research focusses on land use and biodiversity, stress and adaptation as well as insect biotechnology.
