Professional summary

Dr Reto Schmucki is a senior ecologist working on processes that drive population dynamics, structure communities and mediate biological diversity across scales and habitats. His work on biodiversity, biotic interactions and ecosystem services aims to improve our understanding of the impact of land management on ecosystem functioning and provide insights for sustainable resource management, ecological restoration and nature-based solutions to improve the resilience of socio-ecological systems to environmental change.

Reto’s research on biodiversity monitoring and ecosystem services leverages the strengths of technology, mathematical modelling and interdisciplinary approaches to produce high-quality information on the status and trend of biodiversity. His work with national and international networks helps build capacity and co-develop knowledge for policymakers, land managers and the public to support decision-making.
