Welcome to the homepage of the Ecological Field Station Fabrikschleichach. We are part of the Department of Animal Ecology and Tropical Biology (Zoology III) in the Biocenter of the University of Würzburg. The station was established 1983, ca. 60 km away from Würzburg in the heart of the Steigerwald, a richly forested hillside. We host various facilities, including laboratories, course rooms, library and insect collections. Research focus areas of our team include forest ecology, conservation biology and applied biodiversity research. We work in very close collaboration with the Bavarian Forest National Park. The former team of the Evolutionary Ecology group has moved and is now located in Würzburg.
Many thanks for your interest and enjoy reading!
