Brief description of the main scopes: 

My research topic is the comparison of grasslands with different types (mainly sandy, loess and meadow grasslands) and management from the diversity and function (e.g. biomass production) point of view with microcoenological and ecophysiological methods.

Main profile in keywords: 
functional ecology, microcoenology, dry grasslands
