The department of Aquatic Ecology studies life in inland waters. A complicated network that changes with climate, nutrients, toxic substances and biodiversity. But how exactly?
Micro-organisms form a huge, largely undiscovered potential. A treasure-trove for researchers from the department of Microbial Ecology.
The department of Animal Ecology studies how the life-history of birds is shaped by evolution: from personalities to seasonal timing, and from genes to populations.
Biological invasions, biodiversity loss or changing land use? The department of Terrestrial Ecology knows what that can do to plants and all other life forms below- and aboveground.
More than 250 people work together on basic and strategic ecological research: from small gene to diverse ecosystem
The latest outbreak of avian influenza in Western Europe has many people pointing the finger at migratory birds as spreaders of the disease. In reality, the link hasn't been conclusively proven.
The NIOO works from a sustainable research building based on innovative eco-technology. From experimental green roof to 'golden' toilet, the message is: learn from nature!

NIOO disseminates its research results via many hundreds of scientific publications. Next to that, we also try to 'translate' our knowledge to enhance application.
You'll find more than 250 people at the NIOO, from almost 30 nationalities. Researchers, analysts, supporting staff, and of course also many students.
