Research interests

I am a botanist and plant ecologist. I am especially interested in applied part of science – nature conservation and restoration ecology. After my Master I worked 4 years in practical nature conservation as a field botanist, which allowed me to learn about practical problems from own experiences. Afterwards I have returned to science, but I have stayed with practice as well  - I aimed on research of rare species and their protection, setting priorities in species conservation and modelling fate of rare species population under condition of current land use and climate changes. Currently, I am focused on nature-friendly ecological restoration and revegetation. Additionally, I am interested in problematic of invasive species.
