I'm interested in the structure of science and the basic joint problems of ecology and evolutionary biology. I developed an integrated discussion of the major types of ecological problems based on theoretical ecology in collaboration with Géza Meszéna, Zoltán Botta-Dukát, Gabriella Magyar and Tamás Czárán published as a textbook by OUP. Its central, organizing theme is the control of population growth. My former work on density-dependent optimization is also related to population regulation. I'm working on the extension of theory-based ecology to evolutionary biology and on the role of niche-segregation in speciation processes.
