The mission of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) as a nationally and internationally active research institute is to deliver solutions for an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable agriculture – together with society. ZALF is a member of the Leibniz Association and is located in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Berlin-Lichtenberg). It also maintains a research station with further locations in Dedelow and Paulinenaue.
The DFG-funded Research Training Group “BioMove” links innovative individual research projects that overcome the apparent gap between movement ecology and biodiversity research, employing a joint conceptual framework. It strategically combines empirical, experimental and modelling approaches to advance our mechanistic understanding of how biodiversity patterns emerge and how they feed back on the active and passive movement of organisms (for more details see www. bio-move.org).
Within 11 different projects which cover different groups of organisms (fungi, plankton, plants, insects, birds, animals), ZALF offers a project on the distribution and community composition of phytopathogenic fungi in heterogeneous agricultural landscapes. We are comparing the Fusarium and Alternaria community in different agricultural wheat fields surrounded by heterogeneous or homogeneous landscape elements to assess spatially effective barriers in landscapes. The structure and (dis-)similarity of these fungal communities may be related to the dispersal ability of the individual members of these communities.
