Landscaping and nature conservation
The research team "Landscaping, Nature Conservation and Ecological Monitoring" formulates basic principles for the design of,
development of and care for landscapes that have been shaped by mining and industry as well as the affected rural areas. Its
responsibilities include landscape analysis, evaluation and planning in these areas. Of particular importance are the creation
of protective ecosystems by means of renaturation and the reintroduction of endangered native plant and animal species.
