Research Interests

    My scientific interests are hydrobiology, ecology, taxonomy and distribution of charophytes and the use of indicator value of this group of macroscopic algae in palaeoreconstractions. I am also interested in the impact of climate change on the functioning of aquatic ecosystems.

Current study topics

  • Ecology and world-wide distribution of the rare charophyte Lychnothamnus barbatus

  • The impact of climate change on organisms and aquatic environments with particular consideration of charophytes

  • The use of indicator value of charophytes in palaeoreconstractions

Research projects

  • 2016 - 2020

    Grant of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (Diamond Grant DI2015017045) Recovery of the population of an endangered charophyte species Lychnothamnus barbatus in the light of climate change
