The interdisciplinary ARVE team studies the interaction between soils, vegetation and the atmosphere.

Our current research focuses on how human activities have modified the terrestrial biosphere over the Holocene and how these changes in vegetation could have altered atmospheric chemistry and climate. We study human-environment interactions at large spatial and temporal scales using vegetation and carbon cycle models as well as palaeoenvironmental data.
