Welcome!

Welcome to the website of the Terrestrial Ecology Unit – one of the vibrant biology labs at Ghent University.

At TEREC, we study patterns and processes underlying the functioning of terrestrial ecosystems. We therefore run competitive research programs on population and community dynamics, biotic interactions and life-history strategies in a wide suite of plants and animals. Research activities comprise field observations, field- and lab experiments and computer simulations, and results are interpreted both within a fundamental (evolutionary-ecological) and applied (conservation-oriented) framework. To reach scientific excellence and sustain technological innovation, our researchers are active in various national and international research networks, such as SPEEDY, MAD, EVENET and CONGENOMICS.

Apart from conducting research, academic staff and researchers are also deeply involved in science-based teaching, both at BSc level and in the international Global Change Ecology & Oceans and Lakes MSc program.

Hope you enjoy our site, do not hesitate to contact us for more information !

How to reach us?

Take the main entrance in the Karel Lodewijk Ledeganckstraat in front of the highest building, continue until you see the 3 elevators and take it to the 10th floor. Please see the first room on the left for our secretary.

Arriving at Brussels airport

The airport City Express leaves from within the airport building (floor -2) and takes you to one of the main stations in Brussels (subsequently Noord/Nord, Centraal/Central and Zuid/Midi). Here you can switch to one of the many intercity trains (IC) to or via “Gent-Sint-Pieters”, Ghent’s main railway station (Directions Brugge, Knokke, Blankenberghe, Oostende all stop in Ghent). Some trains run directly from the airport to “Gent-Sint-Pieters”.

Arriving by train in Brussels

Switch to one of the many intercity trains (IC) to or via “Gent-Sint-Pieters”, Ghent’s main railway station (Directions Brugge, Knokke, Blankenberghe, Oostende all stop in Ghent). Ghent is on the crossroads of the international lines “London – Brussel – Köln” and “Paris – Lille – Antwerpen”
