Als Ökologen versuchen wir, die Verbreitung und Abundanz von Organismen zu beschreiben und zu verstehen. Gründe dafür können beispielsweise sein, eine Schädlingsart unter Kontrolle zu bekommen, eine gefährdete Art erhalten zu wollen oder einfach auch nur unsere Faszination von der Welt um uns herum.
