About the Author

The Editors: Boris Schröder is «Wissenschaftlicher Assistent» at the Institute of Geoecology, University of Potsdam (Germany). His research focuses on statistical and process-based ecological modelling, quantitative landscape ecology and conservation biology.
Hauke Reuter was «Wissenschaftlicher Assistent» in the Department of General and Theoretical Ecology, University of Bremen (Germany). His research is dedicated to the modelling of ecological complexity which individual based models comprising food web interactions, dispersal processes and environmental risks of genetically modified plants.
Björn Reineking is PostDoc at the Chair of Forest Ecology, ETH Zürich (Switzerland). His research focuses on the mechanisms determining the distribution of species at a range of spatial scales, using both statistical and dynamic simulation models.
