Brief description of the main scopes: 

1) Ecophysiological and taxonomical study of terricolous lichens
Taxonomical revision of Hungarian lichen species with morphological and chemical methods, with special attention to Cladonia genus.

2) Ecophysiological study of terricolous lichen communities
Investigation of the effect of microclimate and seasonality on photosynthetic activity, pigment composition and production of secondary lichen metabolites. Investigation of different acclimation strategies of certain species living in temperate semiarid sandy grasslands.

3) LIFE 4 Oak Forests
Field survey and administration for the “Conservation management tools for increasing structural and compositional biodiversity in Natura 2000 oak forests” project.
