Abstract:
The Terrestrial Ecology unit (TEREC) originates from the ‘laboratorium voor Ecologie der Dieren’ (laboratory for Animal Ecology). TEREC studies the patterns and processes on which the functioning of terrestrial ecosystems is based. This includes research on population and vegetation dynamics, biotic interactions between plants, herbivores, pollinators and predators, variation in behaviour and life cycle properties, and phenotypical (development) plasticity and bio-indicators of invertebrate and vertebrate species. Four main research topics can be distinguished within the research of this group: population and community ecology, evolutionary ecology, plant-animal interactions and applied ecology. Throughout the years, the research of the group has gradually evolved to terrestrial ecology with an emphasis on the ecology of dunes, tidal marshes and sea birds. Key moments for the group include: the introduction of new research topics (such as the study of arthropods in dunes (1973)) and eco-evolutionary research in tidal marshes (1981).

Specific coastal research topics concern:
- Ecology and functioning of dune systems (e.g. research on the blue grasshopper, spiders, marram grass and plant - herbivore interactions);
- Year-round life history strategies of coastal breeding gulls;
- Distribution strategy of spiders as an indicator of the structure and dynamics of coastal tidal marshes;
- Plant - herbivore interactions and mechanisms of succession as determining factors for the vegetation structure;
- Seed dispersion by large mammals in dune areas;
- Population biology of higher plants in a fragmented dune landscape;
- Biological evaluation of Belgian beaches and the impact of sand suppletions;
- Spatial and nutritional ecology of coastal breeding gulls;
- Ecotoxicology of coastal breeding gulls with special focus on mercury pollution.

In the future, the Terrestrial Ecology unit intends to expand and advance the research on sea birds and the eco-evolutionary research of plant - herbivore interactions, both in an applied and fundamental way. This research includes the study of European marram grass-associated biodiversity and the impact on ecosystem functioning as well as the impact of climate change and areal extension on evolution and life history characteristics. The most important national partners with regard to the research on marine birds are the Marine Biology research group (Ghent University), ISOFYS (Ghent University), the department of Biology (University of Antwerp), the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO), the Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research (ILVO) and Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ). Concerning the study of plant - herbivore interactions, the most important national partners are KU Leuven University for the areal extension, the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS; Entomology) and INBO for the European marram grass-associated research. In this context, the use of physiological markers (feather, CORT, immunobiology, stable isotopes) and GPS telemetry (study of movements) is increasing. The first pilot study is currently funded by the LifeWatch project ‘zendernetwerk meeuwen en bruine kiekendieven’.
