Anita Bayer

Anita Bayer

Anita Bayer’s research focuses on ecosystem dynamics including the services ecosystems provide for humans and the changes in these provisions due to environmental conditions, especially climate and land use. She works with the dynamic vegetation model LPJ-GUESS in combination with a broad range of global and regional data and analysis approaches (e.g. evaluation of uncertainties in carbon stocks in fluxes due to land use data and representation of land use, global implementation of an improved metric for carbon sequestration, optimization of land use for ecosystem service provision, etc.). Anita joined the group in 2013 after her PhD in hyperspectral remote sensing.
