Projektbeschreibung der*des Nominierenden

Professor Abd El-Ghani is renowned internationally for his fundamental studies on the flora of Egypt and on biodiversity patterns and vegetation dynamics in arid ecosystems. His scientific work profoundly advanced a mechanistic understanding of relationships between plant diversity and environmental factors in different natural and human-modified landscapes of Egypt. This provides a highly important baseline for tracing climate change effects and for assessing future changes in Egyptian landscapes. During his stay in Germany, Professor Abd El-Ghani will perform studies in the field of urban ecology, which is a rather novel area of research in Egypt.
