Heinke Jäger

Restoration Ecologist

Heinke started to work in the CDRS in 1998, first on the introduced quinine tree (Cinchona pubescens) and then on rare and endangered plant species.

After receiving her PhD from Technical University Berlin, Germany, she carried out her postdoctoral research on invasive species at Brown University, USA.

She is now a senior scientist at CDRS and her research is focused on investigating terrestrial plant and animal species in Galapagos. This includes the distribution, impacts and control of these species, as well as the restoration of invaded ecosystems.
