  • Forschungsinteressen und Projekte

    I am interested in the investigation of the influence of factors as climate, disturbance or management regimes or changes in species composition on interaction patterns of invertebrate communities. Thereby I focus on species traits and their functionality on the ecosystem. In my Bachelor’s Thesis, I evaluated the effect of landscape management activities in a former military training area on spider and butterfly communities. In my Master’s Thesis and in the time after my studies I investigated the influence of an interstate on invertebrate communities in a semi-dry calcareous grassland.

     

    Fields of interest:

    • Biodiversity research
    • Community ecology
    • Entomology, especially Arachnology
    • Evolutionary biology
    • Modelling and statistics
    • Nature and species conservation
