Anett works mostly on finding statistical relationships between food web structure and functioning. Old problem, still limited knowledge, extreme potential importance. Read this old stuff, for example.

And the papers are coming out:

Ági is a young postdoc researcher in my group, we do research on community responses in simulated food webs:

Kati works with me on the hardest issue in food web research: how to put data together.

A recent outcome:
