Research interests Show content

I am a plant ecologist with special interest in interactions among organisms and among organisms and the environment. While I focused on plant parasitic fungi and their defense molecules in my early career I worked later on complementary nutrient uptake strategies of meadow plants. Currently I investigate flexibility of species and communities in response to climatic variables.
