Ingolf Kühn is a vegetation scientist working with plant invasions and their relevance for the diversity of plant species with further interests in patterns and processes of plant diversity in urbanised areas. Topically, his research interests cover changes of distribution patterns and functional composition under global change. Recently, Ingolf has become interested in changes in the Alpine flora and started monitoring based on permanent plots in glacier forefields in the Northern Alps (Dachstein, Berchtesgaden).
