plant coenology, restoration ecology, biodiversity monitoring, research policy, science-polcy interface
Global drivers of conservation success and impact on ecosystem services are my other field of interest.
1) Restoration ecology
My research interest is the habitat rehabilitation of dry Pannonian grasslands. By experimenting primarily in the field, I am interested in the ecological processes induced by different treatments and in the key factors constraining restoration success
2) Long-term ecological research (LTER)
Our research is conducted at the Kiskun LTER site, part of the international network. My activities include organization within the European LTER research infrastructure.
3) Impacts of environmental drivers
Threats to natural ecosystems and their impact is another issue of my research. Studies on the impacts of global drivers on vegetation and naturalness of ecosystems and their interactions are further topics of my interest.
4) Science-polcy interface
A long experience in biodiversity monitoring and organization of ecosystem data and knowledge for decision support lead lately to involvement in the science-policy interface.
