Brief description of the main scopes: 

The ecological effects climate change and land use change in central Hungary: (1) The effects of warming and drought on sand forest steppe vegetation. (2) The interactive effects of extreme drought and chronic alteration of precipitation. (3) Factors explaning the success of common ragweed. (4) The regeneration of sand grasslands following the burn of alien pine plantations. (5) The vegetation of abandoned farmsteads; the survival and spread of cultivated species. (6) The role of fine-scale disturbances in sand grasslands.
