Michael Hauhs received his PhD in Forest Science from the University of Göttingen. He workes as researcher at the Norwegian Institute for Water Research and the University of Göttingen before he became the Chair of Ecological Modelling at the University of Bayreuth. His main research interests are Forest growth models, Catchment models, hydrological modelling as well as information and complexity of environmental time series and categorial theory in ecology. At the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African studies he is a project leader at the subproject Visions of Nature: Concepts of Appropriating and Conserving Nature in Africa.
