Main profile in keywords:
spatial and temporal aspects of phytoplankton diversity, community assembly, Water Framework Directive in Hungary

My main research interest is to study spatial and temporal aspects of phytoplankton diversity and main drivers of community assembly of phytoplankton; recently I focused on those applied and basic research topics that helped the implementation of the Water Framework Directive in Hungary (typological questions, stressor-impact relationships and development of quality assessment methods)
