I’m a forest ecologist and evolutionary biologist focusing primarily on ecological and evolutionary aspects of tree species regeneration patterns.The considerable part of my research has focused on the ecology of natural forest ecosystems, in particularly – Carpathian subalpine spruce forest.

Another topic of my research lies in plant-animal interactions eg. seed predation and dispersal. My investigations are multidisciplinary (biology of plant reproduction, local adaptations of plants, plant-animal interactions, experimental studies, dendrochronological reconstruction of forest history).

To address various ecological problems I use diverse tools including dendrochronological methods, GIS analysis, spatial point pattern analysis, field experiments and field investigations on permanent plots.
