Experimental Plant Ecology


Within the framework of the PaludiZentrale   project, I examine the effects of rewetting and paludiculture on biodiversity. My main focus is on the cross-project harmonization of methods for zoological surveys in various model and demonstration projects. Additionally, I complement existing monitoring approaches with bioacoustic surveys and eDNA sampling.
